    Pros

    it's like running your own business, if you're responsible and you are the type of individual who cares about what you produce, Ultimate will give you the freedom to succeed. The management is absolutely wonderful. It is one of the only places where they care about your well being and each one of us takes pride in the entire organization. The Benefits are amazing, the ER match on 401K is out of this world and unheard of with a 35% match. The CEO Scott Scherr genuinely cares for all of the employees and it a great honor to work under him. The leadership at Ultimate is supportive and collaborative. Onboarding is simple, the company allows you work virtual if needed.

    Cons

    if you like working in the office environment, this might be a possible set back. The position is 100% virtual and coming from another company where being is the office was required, it is a slight transition to get used to but it's definitely worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, truly the BEST place to work. I only wish I'd have made the transition sooner in life.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. It is a realistic laid back culture. No speeches about professionalism and how to act. Employees have true connected relationships. Upper level management will look at you in the eye and say hello. There is no you versus me, everyone is a team. I have worked in several payroll industries since 2006 and Ultimate Software is the best. Employees and leaders are emotionally intelligent.

    Cons

    None at this time, only because the company is growing and still working through transition plans.

    Advice to Management

    They are ever changing, no one is perfect. So all you can ask for is to continue to change and get better.

    Pros

    The culture is truly amazing. Everyone makes you feel welcome and as a part of a team. The benefits are outstanding and they truly care about their employees. It is truly refreshing to work for a company that truly cares about their employees. They provide awesome training and your success or failure at Ultimate is entirely determined by you.

    Cons

    The learning curve is very steep and the expectations are very high. Sometimes the independence that is given to employees isa little too much I think. Some people have learned how to "work the system", but then again that is the case everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate how some of the metrics are calculated in order to reduce/prevent people from gaming the system. Other than that an on-premise gym would be awesome!

    Pros

    After reading the reviews, I had to jump in. We have an amazing culture here at Ultimate Software; one that you can't describe unless you're a part of it. We feel appreciated at work, which comes from the top down. Scott, our CEO, is an amazing leader who actually cares about everyone in his organization. That trickles down to his leaders, who give us commendations for a job well done. Every single day, managers are sending 'kudos' to the entire company to recognize their team members who go above and beyond for our customers.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons. When employees feel appreciated, they also feel empowered to excel at their job. Ultimate Software makes us feel appreciated in an amazing 'family' atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking outside of the box to continue our upward mobility. The future is ours for the taking.
