    Pros

    Excellent Training and on -boarding. Great team of people. Valued its customers and really wanted to provide good advice and services to their clients. I would personally use them if I had a start up..

    Cons

    Significant amount of travel and work life balance is not always attained due to the amount of travel.

    I worked at Insperity full-time

    Pros

    It's a great a service that you're selling. Insperity is a great company to work with overall. Great base salary, benefits, and work-life balance. That being said you must work very hard if you plan to succeed. 100% prospecting for all business. Cold calls, door to door, networking, etc.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Insperity does not always practice what they preach. Although they help companies run better - they have not been able to apply this theory to their own sales-force. Poor management choices is their downfall. Really poor management choices. Very little support and professionalism - at best. The revolving door is a perfect example.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Clean environment and friendly atmosphere at corporate.

    Cons

    Not too fond of outsiders giving objective advice. Very limited view of best practices from consultants with a broader knowledge from other industries.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing the 20+ year employees run your company. Their view is too narrow and you lose sight of what's happening in the marketplace.

    Pros

    All the employees are well-communicated with and all seem to be striving to help the company succeed and help small businesses at the same time.

    Cons

    Because it grew from such a small business itself, sometimes those ideals get in the way of doing business as such a large corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin on.

    I have been working at Insperity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/ life balance, generous PTO, excellent benefits, good training, premiere service provider in industry.

    Cons

    Premiere service provider in industry makes it difficult to sell, difficult to make good $$ unless you are part of the chosen few, constantly have to discount our fee which makes it difficult to make good $$, RM has his select few that are fed with leads, some Managers lead by intimidation. Some Managers need to learn the following: praise in front of the group and criticize behind closed doors.

    Advice to Management

    Realize there is alot of competition especially in the NY market and be more competitive with pricing.

    I worked at Insperity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place for someone just getting into the industry to learn about PEOs and understand the needs of small and midsize employers. High caliber associates. Excellent access to training modules. Excellent service teams. Company is well-respected in the industry

    Cons

    Inability to unbundle services for companies with less than 75-employees. Although this has changed, when I was there, the sales territory was limited to a few ZIP Codes. Most of the bonus payout came from initial enrollment fees rather than a consistent level income stream. Fees were difficult to communicate and non-transparent.

    Advice to Management

    Sales managers should be allowed to be coaches rather than micro-managers. Leads should be distributed equally. Eliminate employer size boundaries. Create bonus formulas that are not based primarily on initial enrollment fees.

    Pros

    The service Insperity provides to clients has the potential to help communities and business grow. There is a lot of potential in the products and services insperity provides

    Cons

    This company is very slow to accept change and be innovative with systems and processes. There is an attitude of "we have always done it this way" throughout most of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have so many layers of management. It is hard to get things done when you need approvals from multiple departments and managers. Just try new ideas if it doesn't work, go back to the old way to doing things.
