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

    Pros

    Hard work pays off. If you are scared of hard work, not meant for you especially during the year-end rush. You are recognized constantly for your accomplishments. So far, everyone I worked with here has a positive attitude and are always willing to help out. After the year-end rush passes, there is so much flexible time and the office becomes a more laid back environment.

    Cons

    Unbelievably fast growing company which will lead to some growing pains; this is why everyone is gung-ho to work as a team to defeat the uphill battle. Not too much of a con though, because this propels yourself into a lead role quicker if you do a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training, training, training. Always provide time and opportunities for more training.

    Pros

    Don't let the casual dress code fool you, we are all business, the causal dress is just a HUGE Bonus!
    Paylocity is a company that is growing very quickly. The growth, however, has not affected the great culture. Employees take pride in making Paylocity a great place to work. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and supportive. There is definitely room to grow as the company grows. The work / life balance is one of the strongest benefits of working at Paylocity.
    It's an exciting time to be a Paylocity employee!

    Cons

    With the company growing at such a quick pace, there has been some reorganization of departments. Having said that, it has not been a big issue because the communication from management and executives is very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to recruit the best of the best, continue with our motto, work hard, play hard. Never lose the casual dress code!

    I have been working at Paylocity

    Pros

    1. Understanding & Supportive Supervisors -- first time in a while that I was treated like an adult with critical thinking stills
    2. Resources made available whenever possible -- dual screens baby! Additionally, project time is allotted to everyone.
    3. Reasonable performance metrics -- unlike other customer support companies, Paylocity balances advocating for the client with timeliness, so they expect expediency and efficiency, but not in a way that feels like some shadowy overlord is breathing down the back of your neck with a stop watch and a long check list of stupid ineffective things your supposed to say to the client (Convergys, I'm looking in your direction)
    4. Small to Mid-sized feel -- I feel like a name instead of a number.
    5. Clean environment -- nice break areas, and even recycling!
    6. Pleasant Location
    7. Good base pay
    8. Frequent employee appreciation days
    9. HR is located in the same building, not half-way across the world (Convergys, I'm looking in your direction)
    10. Currently a lot of upward mobility
    11. Weekends off and a consistent work schedule that you can have a life around. (Convergys, you are absolutely terrible at that)

    Cons

    Mild fear that as it grows, the company may bend to unreasonable shareholder expectations and succumb to corporatocratic apathy and numbers-hyperfocusing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, keep it people oriented, keep investing revenue in the product, thank you for pulling me out of the muck of corporate America to show me how a job should really be.

    Pros

    Paylocity is a company that is growing very quickly. The growth, however, has not affected the great culture. Employees take pride in making Paylocity a great place to work. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and supportive. There is definitely room to grow as the company grows. The work / life balance is one of the strongest benefits of working at Paylocity. Senior Management seems to recognize that in order to attract and retain the best talent, the ability to work remotely and with flexible schedules is key.

    Cons

    With the company growing at such a quick rate, there has been some reorganization of departments / responsibilities which has lead to some initial confusion. However, this hasn't been a big issue because the communication from management and executives is very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in resources that will allow every department to perform at a high level. Company culture and employee morale is vital to a successful company. As the company grows, do not lose focus on the great culture that Paylocity currently has!

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    With the position I have, I have the flexibility to work from home. While it has taken some getting used to, I definitely love the flexibility. I don't feel the same measure of stress that I did working in a noisy office. More importantly than that is the camaraderie and team atmosphere this company has developed. Employees celebrate one another, the managers celebrate the employees, and we get the job done. I have only been here a month, but for the first time in a long time, I actually feel valued by my employer. I worked at another service bureau prior to coming to Paylocity. This place is the real deal. I've had employers in the past say they really value people, but fail to ever show it. Paylocity really does care. I would encourage anyone thinking about joining this company to take a leap of faith.

    Cons

    As great as this company has been to me so far, there are a few things that I consider to be draw backs.

    1. Working from home is great, but when you are just starting off, it takes a lot of getting used to. I would have liked to have been a little more prepared for this.
    2. I came into this company at year end, so everyone has been super busy. That being said, I think it would have been nice during my first few weeks to have scheduled calls with an immediate manager to help gain feedback on how things are going.
