    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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People are treated so well that I could never imagine working for another company. This culture is a result of our strong leadership that comes down from Scott Scherr, Viv Maza, and the rest of our executive team. This company has given me and my family so much that it is hard to put into words.

    Cons

    Only con I can think of is that we have grown so fast the last few years that I can see our culture being affected. It will be up to us to keep it the same and I know we can do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just make sure we focus our future plans on realistic plans and not what comes from some arbitrary corporate jargon book.

    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have been here for almost 10 years and I could not imagine working for another company. Ultimate Software spoils its employees to the extreme due to it's belief that happy employees leads to happy customers. Unique culture, incredible growth opportunities, excellent pay and benefits, stock options, just to name a few. My family owes a lot to this company and I will be loyal to them forever.

    Cons

    Dealing with the challenges that come with a rapid growth organization. Work life can be very stressful at times but the benefits always pay off in the end.

    Pros

    There are so many great people that make working here enjoyable. The company emphasizes a healthy work-life balance and follows through with it.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great communication with the employees.
