    Core Payroll Rep

    Core Sales Representative (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat company to work for. Terrific training, great business model, and world class products.

    ConsI felt like once I was a payroll rep, I would always be a payroll rep. Since leaving Paychex I work for the largest software company in the world. Every 6 months you meet with you manager to discuss different career opportunities within the company. Paychex never did this, and it was more of a 'get in line and wait your turn to be a manager' There was no career dev for reps.

    Advice to Senior Managementput some type of career development track in place where you talk to reps, employees, etc. and ask where else would they like to go within the company.

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

    Great Company

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsTop shelf training program! Tons of support to learn the job. Worked with some of the best and brightest people.

    ConsTerritories get smaller each year and quotas get larger. A complete disconnect!

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop cutting territories! Reps work very hard at building relationships with referral sources and current clients and than have to forfeit that invested time when their territory gets cut.

    Paychex Sales MMS

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Prosif you are doing well they treat you amazing. it's a great job just after college but after 5 years + it's time to get a 'grown up' job... best part time job I've ever had :)

    Consif you go against the grain it's best to look for another job. territory and pay cuts. promises of better technology to sell. corporate is too stiff. Culture isn't amazing.

    Advice to Senior Managementget new mgmt.. very old and stiff and stuck in their ways of doing things.. we are a sales company and sell 'change' for a living.. perhaps mgmt could be a bit of a change agent themselves.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros-Great training
    -Good hard working people
    -Uncapped commissions
    -flexible work hours (sales)

    Cons- Always reacting to market place, ADP is major player and always developes their own software and Paychex purchases software
    -Extremely territory driven
    -Base salaries low
    -Too many issues with software, always over promising and under delivering
    -Need single data base technology
    Management doesn't care at all about tenure, "what have you done for me lately"

    Great Opportunity

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIf given a good territory, you have the potential to make prety good money, good benefits and 401k match ... when things are going good they are going good!

    Consusually start off as TRR which is discussed in interview, almost like a glorified telemarketer, low salary, its sales so its all about numbers! if you do great one month and decent another, your relationship with management can fluctuate...also being able to move to management is tough!
