    Former Employee - IT in Rochester, NY

    I worked at Paychex full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Ability to grow and job security in an area with limited IT opportunities. Many people that i had worked with had been with Paychex for 10+ years and enjoyed being employed there. Good to work with people who didn't mind going to work.

    Cons

    Got the feeling that your growth within the company followed a strict ladder. First job i interviewed for out of college they required to sign a two year contract with that position. Ended up landing a better position 2 years later that took the person I was replacing 4 years to reach by working up the ladder.

    Current Employee - Major Market Sales in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Major Market Sales in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Paychex full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. There is a team that will help make outbound prospecting to supplement what you do on your own. There is also a designated service rep model which is a good selling point and competitive advantage.

    Cons

    The comp plan for Major Markets is the same regardless of where you live throughout the country. (no change for cost of living in Bay Area where avg. price of homes and cost of living is double or triple that of other areas of the country) The way they track revenue has changed significantly over the last few years but the comp plan never changed to reflect the new way that revenue is recognized, making it virtually impossible to make the advertised $120k+ in this position. At plan, this position literally plays $88-90k. There are a few accelerators you can reach but the first one doesn't kick in until you far exceed quota. The technology improvements that were supposed to be live within 6 months of my hire, are still likely 2 years away from being a functional tool to sell to businesses with 50+ employees. In effect, you are selling technology that is about 8+ years old. If you get an appointment with a former client who is willing to see what has changed, you literally are showing them the same exact technology they had when they left 5 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some smart techies to fast track the next generation software before it too becomes obsolete. Recognize the value that Major Market brings to all the other growing business units that prospect to them exclusively.
