    Ten years of happiness & personal development

    SharePoint Administrator (Former Employee) Kingwood, TX

    ProsGreat 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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever 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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    You will need a big saving account to work in sales here.

    Business Performance Advisor (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits are good inexpensive still offer a $250 Deductible .

    Salary is okay.

    ConsBad local management Regional and District Managers are terrible with few exceptions.Unskilled, no leadership qualities and zero people skills. Clique-ish environment.

    Don't get fooled by the talk of residuals they will make you cut your take to the bone to get a deal and head counts.The DM's comp is not tied into margin they are based on head counts. Corp leads are for the few and privileged. You will need a savings account for your first 12-18 months and a desire to spend it to pay your bills. If you get into a groove and into the clique you might be able to make a go here.

    Sales does not get a 401(k) match. Corporate employees do.

    Training really nice people but their job is to tell you how to sell the the company way (or the highway) rather than teaching you the product. Two weeks total in Kingwood TX in the chain motel. They will feed you pretty well.

    Their sales method is about a six step process and they never ask for the business or go for the close???!!!

    I have 25 years experience every new hire is forced to be an appointment setter for senior sales reps. And you will be asked to cold call and go door to door at local businesses.

    The product is too expensive, they complicate the process until the prospect is too frustrated to keep listening. It is selling a Bentley to a business owner who can afford a Chevy.

    They claim you are not selling insurance but essentially you are and unlicensed.

    The company is stuck in the 1980's, it takes brass XXXXX to sell PEO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou sell payroll and insurance stop complicating it ,you can bless people with jobs they can keep if you realize this and let them sell and you will lower that 35% sales force turnover.

    Train your managers and set a better example by walking the walk you like to talk a good game.

    Get your sales force well trained on product and spread the wealth of the corporate leads you will cut down on turnover and not make your sales force cash poor.

    Great Opportunity but very high turnover

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits and work environment. Nice base salary and company culture. Class A offices and generous vacation time off.

    ConsMost business performance advisors are out of the position in 1 to 2 years. A very difficult sale despite the fact that they hire only successful and experienced sales people. Unless you have numerous small business owner contacts the prospecting is very difficult and the training does not provide any solutions. Very few sales are made but each new customer is so profitable that the business model works.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInsperity knows what it is doing. Profitable with no debt. Administrative positions are great and people stay for a long time. The sales positions have very high turnover. I wish they were more upfront about that but then they would have trouble hiring people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company to work for with excellent benefits and they truly care about helping small businesses and communities.

    Senior Recruiter (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsWork/Life Balance, excellent benefits, understands the importance of employee appreciation, strong emphasis on volunteerism. I met some of the most amazing people while working with Insperity and know that those friendships will continue on outside of employment with Insperity.

    ConsThe organizational structure is constantly changing and this can be unsettling at best. The fairly new management team is disconnected from what drives the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer management training opportunities to employees as a way to move up in the organization

    Solid company that really cares about it's employees.

    Human Resource Representative (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat team environment; outstanding company benefits and an excellent life/work balance for employees.

    ConsEveryone is not located in one building so it makes it difficult to really get to know everyone except at the building you work at.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would help to promote a management training program to employees as a way to move up in the organization.

    Seemed to be a nice PEO to be associated with.

    Senior Associate (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsOffered good benefit packages to client partners, the ESS was easy to navigate. It was interesting to work for one company, but be paid by another which was Insperity, and considered to be the employer for unemployment purposes.

    ConsI wasn't able to find similar employment through Insperity after I was laid off by their client company, but haven't given up yet.
