    Pros

    Catered lunches, clear cut upward mobility, get what you put into it, $1 health insurance, amazing work culture, everyone is super friendly

    Cons

    You'll never leave Oklahoma because you'll never leave Paycom. (I want to leave Oklahoma)

    Advice to Management

    Give TL's some clear instructions on how to direct new hires in training, and if you do already, make sure TL's are communicating this to the new hires.

    I have been working at Paycom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In Oklahoma City there is a lot of Oil and Gas opportunities that come and go. I love the stability that Paycom can offer. The perks are amazing with a beautiful facility delicious lunches (only $4) and most of my team takes advantage of the boot camp at lunch! Everyone here smiles and is very happy. The leadership group is so encouraging and motivating to everyone. They offer very progressive compensation plans as you finish your training programs and take on more. I love seeing all of the employee referrals that start. You want to be friends with the people you work beside so it is great that Paycom recognizes this and they pay a $500 referral fee! I have already earned $1000!! Our sales force is so impressive. They are some of the smartest and most strategic minded professionals I have ever seen. I wish I could sell because I would want to be one of them for the money and just to be part of that team!

    Cons

    Compared to my last company this place is amazing and I really can't think of anything that I would consider a con. If I have to write something I would say maybe create another exit from the facility so it isn't so busy at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing whatever it is that you have been doing to make this company great!

    Pros

    - Good pay for college grads: Salary + Commissions + Car/Phone Allowance - Lots of travelling and working with smart, fun, and hard-working people - You will learn a lot about the payroll/HR software industry - You will grow a lot professionally working with a variety of businesses and speaking with many different company execs

    Cons

    - Work piles up fast and you can get stuck in repeat 60+ hour work weeks - Lots of finger-pointing and people avoiding blame when things go wrong. You will need to get good at defending yourself. - Lack of specialists with more-than-basic technical skill and attention to detail, need to explain what needs to be done very clearly and even then mistakes are made which you'll have to take blame for when the customer notices.

    Advice to Management

    - Need more technical teams, or specialists who actually like doing technical work. Setup specialists are either lacking in skill or not willing to do technical work. Some are good, most are mediocre and do the minimum work required only. - Managers need to pay more attention to overworked staff and find solutions or push harder to hire additional team members. - Senior Management is very good and really do listen to employees and customer feedback.

    I have been working at Paycom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We have some of the best perks around. We are growing when other companies are laying off and reducing compensation plans. Our value proposition to employees is extremely strong (we promote from within, our training programs are top notch, our comp plans reward those who commit themselves to life long learning and personal development). In the Midwest we are a software company competing at the national level to dominate the Human Capital Management industry. I am a person who thrives on the passion and enthusiasm or our leaders. They don't have to be here because financially they are all set for life, but they continue to show up and push themselves to be better. Our Executives love to see the rest of us grow and have success. Our CEO plays basketball and has lunch with all of the employees!!! People get promoted almost every month. I know this because at our monthly luncheons and quarterly company meetings we recognize them along with work anniversaries and birthdays. I have worked other places and Paycom is by far the best culture! Where else does the entire company get an all expense paid trip to a 5 star hotel with awards, a concert and all kinds of fun events for an evening?

    Cons

    People still don't know about us. Our brand isn't strong enough yet for people to understand who we are and what we can offer them professionally. Our marketing needs to be bigger locally and nationally. The oil and gas companies are laying off and yet people are still applying with them rather than Paycom- that is our fault! If we want to grow spend the money to let people know about us! I want people to be excited about me working at Paycom rather than my friends who are at the other places in town.

    Advice to Management

    I believe and I have worked at several other large companies that our management team is one of the strongest around at the very top. Internal promotions are amazing but don't be afraid to bring in new blood, even if they rock the boat a little, new ideas and perspective is always good. Continue to focus on growth and start to evolve with the growth. Some of our ways might have worked at 500 employees but if we want to really explode we might reconsider some or our hiring practices and marketing limitations. I am excited to see where we are in 5 years!

    I worked at Paycom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Great Benefits and perks. Jeff York is a great VP of Sales! Great commission structure.

    Cons

    You are worked to the bone, high pressure both on you, and on your clients. The Sales Managers really differ from one to the next, I had a one that was a total work-a-holic, and expected the same. When you are doing well this is a great place, but if not it's extremely stressful. If you need outside sales experience you can get it here, but not a place for established sales people. The people that work for this organization are also very superficial, and are not very friendly. Also seems like management has no trust, they need to track every minute of your day. You are forced to come in before and after all appointments, no flexibility at all. Be prepared to never leave work behind, constant phone calls and texts from management late night and on the weekends. Can't have time off if you aren't 100% of plan. Can only be promoted if you are wiling to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Give your reps more room to breathe, no need to track every minute of the day. Let your employees have time off, without guilt.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome job! Great Leaders and Supervisors like Jason and Alison are awesome to work with! Chad (C Ray that is) is by far the best person I've ever had the pleasure to work for. He inspires his department to do better and makes us feel like family. He makes us proud to be part of such an amazing company.
