They do not mean what they say

Product Developer (Former Employee)
Weston, FL

I worked at Ultimate Software as a contractor for less than a year

ProsIt's one of the very few established companies in south florida, close to miami metro area. People are mostly friendly, they frequently organize events to celebrate birthdays of their employees every month. Some of the employees are staying there for more than 10 years.

ConsToo many tiers of management make it difficult for a new employee to work freely and also to communicate his/her concerns and feedbacks. The salaries are way under the market rates and the contract-to-hire positions are very unstable. The management is highly unprofessional in keeping their words. The team leaders often micro manage junior employees in every aspect. Frequent blame games are also common. I would say if you really want to engage yourself for a long time in a core technical company, look elsewhere before joining here.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease pay people their due shares and try to hire FT employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great company that cares for its employees

Technical Consultant (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Ultimate Software as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe company understands that happy workers benefit the company. Tons of perks in office that you can take advantage of: Breakfast days, massages, and ice cream on certain days. Not only this, but their hours are flexible, giving you the opportunity to work at home or travel on the road, given what you are into.

ConsDue to most employees telecommuting, many of the people you work with you never meet face to face

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat work!

Great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ultimate Software as an intern

ProsPays well, good people, free ice cream truck and barbecues are frequent, the hours are great--best hours I've had a developer yet.

ConsSouth Florida is not brimming with technical opportunities, so you feel a bit isolated as a developer in this community. Still, if you're looking to live near the beach and make enough money to enjoy it, this is a place you should consider.
