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

    Pros

    Good PTO and benefits

    Cons

    General Managers in Dallas are not present and they talk down to employees. They promote employees to management that are not qualified and that do not understand compliance regulations. Very religous and political company, they promote their views to the point that they hold you hostage in a room once a month where they WebEx their CEO in to give his political and religious views....these meetings are mandatory. Strange since they are publicly traded consider themselves HR experts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to understand that employees have their own views. They need to also understand that they have great talent in the field that do not need to move to Kingwood, Texas to lead the company in different aspects.

    Pros

    Amazing organization with culture to match. I have enjoyed my time at Insperity. Worked with great people and the work life balance is perfect.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult service to sell to business owners. Asking companies to change the way they purchase benefits can be challenging.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance is the only PRO

    Cons

    You need a work life balance to decompress from the recruiting dept. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!! NO benefits, salary or extra PTO is worth losing the value in yourself! This dept. is absolutely disgusting!!! Change today, change tomorrow, nothing stays the same. You have NO voice and you are merely just a puppet! This job is a JOKE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the company and never leave your house because you are a horrible set of people!

    I worked at Insperity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong company culture. Well-established SOPs. Knowledgeable, supportive co-workers. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Management wants to view the world through rose-colored glasses. I was the 7th employee to leave (or be let go) under the Team Manager to whom I reported. At what point does the company start to question this manager's effectiveness or ability to lead? Apparently never. Also, other than adding the word "Senior" in front of your existing title, there is little to no room for advancement unless you want to relocate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so quick to dismiss employee concerns or complaints. It's not always easy to acknowledge your faults, but you're probably losing good employees with long-term potential because you aren't willing to effectively manage your managers.

    Pros

    Peers and support team are great to work with!

    Cons

    Antiquated marketing and promotion strategies!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create new market offerings and simplify the comp plan!! Product offerings offer no real advantage over competition and are far too expensive!

    I have been working at Insperity

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Positive atmosphere in my office at least
    Team support
    Great service/ platform
    Great people
    Residual pay

    Cons

    Low success and pay in beginning
    Low wins at first
    Co-employment
    Hard sell- needs to be "perfect fit"
    No advance/ draw- year 1 is very hard to succeed
    Low expense allowance.
    Base should be based on experience/ past success / negotiable. Too low for year 1-2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some type of small draw on top of the base pay until first 1 or 2 deals are closed. This is why talented and good performers leave after 1st year. Pay is low an so are your wins as a BPA early on. Anyone who had had success in another industry might be tempted to go back to that based on financial reasons alone.

    Need to use more marketing 3.0 techniques vs. commercials and 1.0/80s-90s marketing.

    Get buyers looking for great EE benefits, HR support and to grow business with employees. Competition are crushing us in this area. The platform is great and we need to find ways to get in front of more people who make these decisions. People in the small business community still have no clue who we are and what we do, yes we need to do our job at the local level, but we need more digital / innovative marketing. Even look at paying a 3rd party to get more qualified leads to us.

    Create new products that make it easier for people to buy and say "yes" too. What about a platform for just HR support and no co-employment? Or a platform for benefits and limited HR support. That way we can sell exactly what the customer needs even if margin suffers a bit we can get more wins and build a bigger and better business.

    I worked at Insperity full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great work environment, Good people, Strong support of family & faith, Great flexibility with time management & PTO, Excellent adoption of new technologies, Fantastic benefits & perks, beautiful campus

    Cons

    Salary could be a little more competitive, but otherwise there weren't many cons to working for Administaff (now Insperity)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never lose that small-business mentality that makes the company so great to work for - even as it grew into a Fortune 500 company, Insperity always had that close-knit, almost "family" feel to it like a small business
