Review Highlights

Pros
  • If you put in the hard work they will definitely reward you back (in 13 reviews)

  • That comes with being part of a rapidly growing company (in 9 reviews)


Cons
  • Work/life balance is poor, as my life began to revolve around the job (in 9 reviews)

    I worked at Paycom

    Pros

    Fair Commissions, Excellent benefits, definite ability to move up into management, lots of incentives like President's club trips etc.,

    Cons

    Young, unknowledgable management, growing pains, ridiculous amount of cold calling and burned territories, lots and lots and lots of turnover despite what they tell you in the ridiculous 5 step interview process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit promoting people so quickly! They might be great at sales, and horrid at leadership... it only leads to their getting fired and their team getting screwed.

    Pros

    Paycom offers great benefits to their employees.

    Cons

    Paycom has a ranking system with their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They shouldn't rank their employees and should treat them more equally.

    I have been working at Paycom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Paycom is a busy, fast paced environment. There is no shortage of work and the team I work with are there to help with anything I need. I have worked for a couple large companies such as Paycom and they have all had their challenges but here I have found that everyone is willing to support each other. If you need help all you have to do is ask. $1 insurance, $4 lunches, free gym are some nice perks too.

    Cons

    IT has this place locked down. I understand the rational behind it, it just makes getting some things done a little harder. Other than that it's a great place to work.

    Pros

    The training for new hires is phenomenal. I learned more in my four weeks of training than in some of my business classes in college. They really make sure you are prepared and ready to be on your own out in the field once you finish training. The company culture is great as well. I have a ton of fun at work everyday and it is a very positive environment. Also the pay is great too. You are 100% in control of how much money you want to make and how fast you want to get there.

    Cons

    It's not your typical 9-5 job. Be prepared to work 50-60 hours a week especially if you are just starting off, however it is definitely worth the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing

    I have been working at Paycom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are great people working here! There are many benefits to working at Paycom. They provide $1 health insurance, company luncheons, catered lunches, and many different company functions.

    Cons

    The pay for my position is a bit low for the amount of stress the work causes. They have black out periods every quarter and year end. This job requires a lot of overtime.

    I have been working at Paycom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    We work very hard for the success we have but the reward is there waiting on the other side. The growth within the company is there, you just need to decide if it's something your willing to work for!

    Cons

    Sales is demanding and sometimes you need a couple extra days to unwind and be with your family, friends, ect. So vacation days is something I think should be looked into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vacation time

    I have been working at Paycom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Paycom makes sure to show all of their employees appreciation, whether it be through company events, trips, or even just words of encouragement. The founders of Paycom instilled a great company culture from the get go and it can still be seen 15 years later. Paycom also is great about advancement by constantly giving career opportunities and they provide great benefits for their employees.

    Cons

    The vacation and sick policy isn't ideal, however, you will enjoy being at work and will not want to take a day off if you don't have to!

    I have been working at Paycom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not only the new hire training, but the constant training that employees go through on a daily basis. Gym, catered lunches, boot camps, awesome work environment. Constantly growing which means room for growth in your career!

    Cons

    While growth is a pro, it's also a con. We are experiencing growing pains like any company that grows this quickly would. Need more people! Days are long. You're lucky if you're actually able to take a lunch and leave at 5:00.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. We have the best of the best.
