    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Employees are treated like royalty but with anything great it comes with a fair price. From day one of new hire training, Ultimate sets you up for success. It's up to you as the employee to take it from there and fulfill your duties to the best of your abilities. I guarantee you will continue to be rewarded and promoted if you have strong work ethic and truly posses employer loyalty. I've been with Ultimate over 5 years and management has provided me with many opportunities to climb the ladder. There is lots of room to grow and you just can't get enough of the culture. The perks and benefits that Ultimate provides to its employees is unheard of in these times. I can't predict what's to come but if Ultimate continues to maintain this culture and work environment, I can confidently state that I could work here till retirement.

    Cons

    We have grown considerably since I've joined and with that comes growing pains. Most corporate organizations encounter these struggles at one time or another. So far, executive management has done a fine job in proving through their actions that we can remain one of the best companies to work for even with this growth pattern. For example, the large investment Ultimate makes in staffing for departments such as Service and Development - the departments that touch our customers daily is proof that they saw a need for improvement and fulfilled it. I've seen a lot of businesses run too lean causing heir turnover numbers to skyrocket. Not at Ultimate. Work/Life balance takes priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing I ask is that as we grow and become more and more successful- let's not forget our mantra "People First." It's easy to get lost in corporate competition within the HCM industry. Ultimate supports over 2000 families today and so if we can help it, let's not forget that everyone is fighting a battle that we don't know about. So, management please keep giving constructive criticism and feedback on performance and let there be no surprises to your employees on how they are doing today and how they can improve. Over-communication is key for an employee to excel and for a manager to truly be a good mentor.

    I worked at Ultimate Software full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing. They do take care of people via their benefits. People work hard and are dedicated to the organization and the vision of the company. Quarterly meetings with all employees are very good in keeping everyone informed of the progress of the company.

    Cons

    Company has grown so fast over the last couple of years that the "family culture" is beginning to be affected. The growth is only now beginning to be structured. Because of the fast unstructured growth over the last couple of years, many people were impacted and moral started to drop and unfortunately, continuing to drop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful of cronyism. It is beginning to be very prevalent in the organization and impacting the business.

    I worked at Ultimate Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company benefits are the best in the business. Didn't meet one person that wasn't friendly. Everyone is willing to help with whatever needs to be done. Many people work remotely, who doesn't like working from your kitchen table

    Cons

    Phoenix division is new and not as organized as the rest of the company. I think after a few years things will settle down and fall into place

    It's hard to think of anything at this point. The right-most of four elevators has been out of order for a few days.

    Excellent benefits, Ultimate is always looking for ways to better take care of their employees and their families.

    Working virtual I miss out on some of the perks that employees have working from an office. That is really the nature of any virtual employee.

    Pros

    The company culture that our CEO, Scott Scherr has created is unbelievable. Everyone is like family, co-laboring for the benefit of our clients. Everyone's voice is heard and respected. Management truly takes care of their teams. This company not only takes care of me, but my entire family. My children have visited Ultimate Software and see it as a "Software Disneyworld". They hope to work here someday as well. Scott had a vision 25 years ago, and it grows everyday. He is an amazing person and leader.I am so honored to be a part of this fantastic company.

    Cons

    There are no real "cons". Yes, there are stressful issues and seasons, but I see them as opportunities for growth and learning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. The plans for this company just keep getting better and I think that with the culture that everyone has grown accustomed to, we will all want to be a part of it's future.
