    Pros

    Working at paycom has been the absolute best opportunity I could have asked for, especially coming straight out of college. First off, compensation is the best in the game. Starting off at $50k per year with uncapped commission and a great commission structure was amazing. There's also milestones that will allow you to increase that base to well over $100k. In other words, this is my first year in my first job and I'm confident I'll be making well over 6 figures this year. Other than compensation, the culture is absolutely incredible!! While the work is challenging, I am so excited to get up and go to work every day. My team is made up of the most genuine, motivated, optimistic people I have ever met. Also, in sales you are actually trained at our corporate office by our CSO, the co founder of the company. I'm not exaggerating when I say everyone at the leadership level genuinely cares about each employee's business goals and even personal goals. The position is not a normal sales representative position. You are a true executive working as a human capital consult to ceo's, CFOs, and business owners. It is extremely empowering to know how big of an impact I've had on my client's businesses. The opportunity for growth is endless. Leaderships asks you your goals right when you start and do everything they can to set you up to reach those goals. Also, they ONLY promote from within!! In other words....you would be crazy to not try to get a job here.

    Cons

    I wouldn't even consider this a con, but the interview process is definitely tough. Don't expect to coast through it. You have to come in for a 4 hour phone canvassing session where you will be expected to make appointments. It's challenging, but a great way to get a feel for what you'll be doing. The hours during the first month of training are tough...it's a lot of work. They joke saying "it's like getting an MBA in 4 weeks", which it truly is. Expect to be challenged and maybe a little stressed but it truly makes sure you are prepared for the position and sets you up for success. After your first few months, your hours won't be as crazy but don't expect to get off earlier than 5 on a Friday (maybe exactly at 5 if you're lucky) but like I said, this a true executive position...not your average entry level sales This job is not easy. It's hard work. However, you are more than rewarded for the hard work you put in. It is 100% what you make it. If you put in the work to learn the process, the success will roll in before you know it.

    Pros

    Great benefits, random events for employees, fun and engaging work culture, room for growth. Free access to Yoga, boot camp and gym facilities. Constant training. Great appraisal system. Catered lunches for $4.

    Cons

    PTO is slim your first year, also you put in overtime certain times in the year. That could be a pro for some people.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a growth plan for Team Support Specialists and Admins.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, culture, and company. I have work-life balance, and I can be as involved as I choose with after work activities they offer (such as bowling league, free gym, yoga, golf club, etc). Friendly people, and opportunity for growth - I also believe that our product is awesome, and it gives me that "feel good vibe" knowing that we are helping other companies and their employees.

    Cons

    Only con I can think of is that we are growing so fast that there is construction on our second gym and 3rd building- I can't keep my car clean on the outside from the construction dust and Oklahoma wind!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I am a happy camper!

    Pros

    I started working at Paycom a little over a year ago. When I was contacted by a recruiter about making the switch from my (previous) company, I was extremely hesitant because of the success I was having in my second year there. After a phone call with the recruiter, and what seemed to be an opportunity as many would describe as almost "too good to be true", I went into the local Paycom office to interview with the sales manager. My interview experience was phenomenal all the way through the final interview I had with the Chief Sales Officer which all played a factor in my decision making to leave a place where I worked for over two years to join a growing office in an entirely different industry. I could not be happier with my choice. The culture at Paycom is unlike anything I see from any friends or family members' places of work which stems from senior leadership. It's talked about all of the time that executing on your goals should ultimately lead you to having a full, abundant life. You can absolutely have a work-life balance and accomplish anything you ever dreamed of doing. Paycom is a company that rewards you on your results. There are no politics in the company whatsoever - it is entirely based around fairness to provide every single person the exact same opportunity as anyone else. Fast career growth is possible - but up to YOU to make it happen. The compensation that is discussed during interviews is very real and unheard of at other companies.

    Cons

    Like any sales position, this is not an 8-5 type of position. Be prepared for some days with later hours and additional work you'll have to do from home. You can absolutely have a work life balance, however there will be times that you are going to have more things on your plate requiring your attention in order to get everything done. I guarantee every second of work you put in is an investment to your future and will be well worth it in the end.

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to have been hired by Paycom and I can say that I can't imagine working anywhere else. From my first day, I have felt like I've know my coworkers and bosses for years. I look forward to Mondays now because I know I am going to have a great week. I can easily say that this is the best job I have ever had.

    Cons

    Although this is not a deal breaker, I would say that the Health Care is a big Con. It is very expensive if you are not single. My raise in salary I got from coming to Paycom was essentially wiped out due to the monthly reduction to pay for health care for my family. Also the PTO is a little behind the times.

    Pros

    I don't know of another company that provides the opportunity to create massive amounts of success as quickly as you can at Paycom. There are very seldom companies that will compensate you on the level that Paycom will. The culture of the company is also incredible. Offices and corporate alike are constantly motivating us sales reps to succeed at an amazing level and providing the leadership to do so. Corporate executives are also personally involved in the training of new reps.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but be prepared to learn a vast amount of information on HR, Payroll, Health Benefits, ACA, and Finance in a very short period of time. Don't worry though, there is weekly on-going training on every aspect of the company and our product.

    The culture is amazing. You work hard and at times long hours but everyone is genuinely happy to be there, helping our customers. The salary and the earning potential is insane; it really pushes you to do your best and work hard. I love the location; love my new city.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Continue to make the focus of the company it's workforce and it's commitment to serving our clients at a very high rate of customer care and being of value to them.

    Pros

    I love my job as an outside sales rep at Paycom. After years as a sales manager in other industries, I feel so fulfilled in a position where I can be competitive in a fun team environment, and where I know the hard work I put in will pay off. I believe strongly in a meritocracy, and love the passion and dedication of the people I work with.

    Cons

    It does take some time to become successful- you need to be open and committed to intense and ongoing training, be willing to put some time into building your own base and your reputation, and have faith that this company will honestly reward you more with every day of honest, loyal and earnest performance.

    Paycom is a truly amazing place to work. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of a team that fosters continuous growth and personal development. We are a growing company and our leadership has the mentality of "A rising tide lifts all ships." They make me feel very valuable and fulfilled in my career. I feel so lucky to be a part of the Paycom team.

    Cons

    Since I have to put a con, I would say that there are complexities to a growing company. Specifically change. Paycom experiences a lot of change (which I think is a great thing) and you have to develop the skill of being very adept and open to change.

    Pros

    I don't usually take the time to write reviews but I am one that likes to read other peoples reviews on restaurants, products, services, ect so I felt the need to write one on my experience here at Paycom. I have been a sales rep for Paycom for 3+ years and it has been an incredible journey for me. I came from a medical sales job where I didn't see a future with much opportunity so I started looking elsewhere. Well Paycom was the best decision I have ever made in my career.... I started as a sales rep and then quickly moved up to an Executive Sales rep (the next tier) making well over 100k my first year with commission. I now have a 100K base, plus commission, and have doubled what I made in my last job and continue to exceed my personal and professional goals. Not only is Paycom great as far as your potential in earnings but they also provide so many different avenues for you to continue to grow and be promoted. I can't say enough great things about the possibilities here at Paycom.

    Cons

    This one is hard because I really love it and feel like Paycom does so many things right, but the biggest thing would be the PTO.. I wish we got more days off based on tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I have never felt more supported from upper management and felt like they truly have every single employees best interest. This is so hard to find in a mid size and growing company.
