    I have been working at SOI Holdings full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The compensation is above average in the industry. The company is growing and it an exciting time to be a part of this growth. Management is committed to living our values and striving for future success.

    Cons

    There's nothing negative I can other than traffic is bad in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work of reminding all of us: "Three Armies Under One Flag".

    Cannot calculate a paycheck correctly

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at SOI Holdings

    Pros

    I have no pros other then you do receive pay on time even though it's never right

    Cons

    If you enjoy receiving your paycheck and having it be correct, then DO NOT USE SOI. This is the 5th pay period we are with them, and to date they have not gotten a single check correct! Then they feed employees total bs by saying our insurance premium rates didn't include tax. It's a PRETAX deduction, there should not be tax. They blame Obama care for creating this new employee tax but won't show you what it is. Basically it is musical insurance premiums each and every paycheck. They withhold whatever they choose from your check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to correctly calculate payroll and charge ins premiums!

    Pros

    Great product. There is a big market out there for what SOI has to offer, and with TriNet you will now have an even better platform.

    Cons

    Bait and switch selling. You have to sell your deals before they are underwritten. You then have to go back to your prospect and tell them pricing has changed losing all credibility. You are not allowed to talk to anyone above your area manager and they are kept in the dark. Bad leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your deals underwritten up front to avoid bait and switch selling. Get out of your glass house and come see what is going on in the marketplace.

    Pros

    This is a company that understands what the term "pay for performance' means. There is no other PEO of this size, especially the nationals (Insperity/Administaff, Paychex, ADP, Trinet) that pay commissions and residuals as high as these.

    They are on a growth curve and rapidly opening offices with people who have solid experience in the payroll and PEO industries. This place has people with a passion for the business, clients, and the company.

    Cons

    Senior management is stretched. It is a flat organization, meaning that decisions get made and implemented easily, but only if you can get to senior management. Middle management is beginning to pay a price for the inaattention paid by senior executives.

    They need to begin using a more cohesive and formal evaluation format in the hiring and onboarding of new people. They rely on gut too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the "Cons" section. You are good guys witha passion for the business.

    Pros

    Good industry. Fair compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Very high turnover. Culture, middle management, and senior management. Culture, lack of trust at every level of the organization. Not honest with employees or with clients. Lack of integrity. Company doesn't value employees. Poor training and development. Employees, client, and buyer beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are important.

    Stretched Senior Management Team

    Current Employee - AREA SALES MANAGER
    Current Employee - AREA SALES MANAGER

    I have been working at SOI Holdings

    Pros

    This is commission-sales heaven for deal makers. Commisions are more generous than Insperity, Trinet, Oasis. Paychex and ADP don't even come close. Generous closing commisioions and monthly residuals. The accelerator pays a 30% bonus on commisions and residuals once the sales goal is hit. Over half the sales force hits it by August and it is retroactive.

    Cons

    C-Level is on top of things, regional sales leadership needs culling; some of them are strictly "closers" who are great working deals. They need executives who can see past tomorrow and do some strategic planning AND execution, like Insperity does. The sales quote system is antiqautaed and useless. Some reps use their own spreadsheets. A VP Sales thinks that it beets competitors' systems. It doesn't. Underwriting takes 3 - 5 days. ADP, Insperity, Trinet can have finished quotes the same day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to open your eyes and ears about what some filed managers are up to. How many HR issues are swept under the rug because a rep, manager, or VP can sell a lot?
    Time to start building a poloished sales orghanization that will sustain profitable growth without harassing and hammering on sales reps. Time for sales management who know how to build sales temas without 50% turnover.

    I worked at SOI Holdings

    Pros

    fairly fexible hours , good work-life balance, lean in middle managment, you can pick up the phone and call the president if need be..

    Cons

    The middle managment offered no assistance if you needed help closing business. They were only interested in keeping there jobs and not taking any risks..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some of your senior executives to do something productive
