I have been working at Paychex full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Extensive interview process, and I went out in the field with another rep to shadow to see if it is something I could see myself doing. I love that this was part of the interview process, they really want to see if you can fit into the culture. Each employee has about 30k invested them prior to even stepping foot in the field. You have a job dependent test - they want to hire for longevity, and have never had a company lay off in over 40 years. You can make your schedule once you are done with your training. You still will love meetings twice a week at your office, but for the most part, you can flex what you need to do - especially great if you have a family. This company is very supportive and generous with supporting you personally and professionally. Your base salary is very generous - and incentives for sales credits are HUGE! The sky is the limit with this job. There are awesome incentives to do well. Awesome team to be part of - my Manager has made an incredible culture at our office, and encourages us to make long lasting relationships with our clients. This company gives you the world on a silver platter - you just have to get out there and perform! The CEO meets everyone at the first training - with 12k employees, pretty phenomenal that you get to meet him. They set you up with a tablet, iphone, expense money, stipend for your car, and updated training constantly. 1/3 of the job is training, 1/3 of the job is networking for business, and 1/3 is being in the field. if you ask me, if you get in with Paychex - you will never have a reason to leave!

Cons

You are on the road a lot and it can get lonley - but your team does communicate with you often. There is mandatory telemarketing and cold calling, you have to be bold enough to keep your A game on! It's only for a few hours a week.

Advice to Management

Get a great District Sales Manager and positive employees - you can't go wrong!

    I have been working at Paychex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very stable, there's never been a layoff. Some projects can be pretty interesting and decent opportunities to learn new technologies so your skills don't get outdated.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average, very 'siloed' and not much interaction between teams. Slow to upgrade or replace outdated product offerings; constantly in catch-up mode with other companies. Seems to be a lot of boardroom backscratching that dictates technology acquisitions and software usage.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation to match increasing corporate profits (i.e. what percentage of that $3B mark is going to employees instead of shareholders?)

    I worked at Paychex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paychex is a great company to work for. They provide excellent training to make all of their employees experts in their field. Their benefits package and strong company ethics makes it descent place to work.

    Cons

    January...you have to start selling in September to meet your quota for January and still make monthly goal along the way. From September to February it's like having 3 jobs.
