    Former Employee - Payroll Specialist in Saint Petersburg, FL

    I worked at Paychex full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generous time-off policy given. Good collaborative culture. Everyone helps everyone else.

    Cons

    Career development and advancement opportunities are based on favoritism as opposed to proven accomplishments and review standards. Besides having experienced it first hand, I had seen many hard working peers looked over. Pay is very poor and often times subjective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quantifiable data and proven accomplishments should be considered when deciding advancement opportunities. Too often it is based on most liked.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers. Good place to learn strong work ethic.

    Cons

    High turnover. Extreme workload. Poor Management. Low pay. High expectations as a new hire. Excessive/Wasteful training: needs to be more hands on. You get paid based on book work that you probably had painful experiences with, within your first month of being a specialist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Listen to your employees, your title means nothing if you can't fulfill the job well.
