    Pros

    Amazing work life balance and great opportunities for working from home

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities to move up, tons of politics at play and people need to "pay their dues" and be at a position for a certain amount of time before moving up. They don't move up those most talented sometimes because they need to move up those who have put in the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time finding your superstars and let them shine! Don't put more obstacles in their way.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are incredible, work life balance, working remote is not frowned upon, everyone will always lend a hand to help, employee's are friendly, the C-level executives are wonderful

    Cons

    Internal employee's are overlooked for promotions, no professional growth, salaries for the same positions are not comparable, there is not training for all positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire internally and promote someone before hiring external (training is available for customer support positions, why are we not considering/training internal people first??) , Implement training for all positions, review salaries and take a look at experience level, there are employee's without experience who get paid more, our culture should be the same for all departments

    Keep it up.
    I cannot speak on other managers, but creating a cohesive team dynamic is essential and thus far our team has worked well together because of it. As long as we are near or placed in positions to succeed, we all enjoy the results.

    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Ultimate is an amazing company to work for - it really starts with leadership. Scott Scherr, our CEO, started the company with a motto that hasn't changed even as we are a much larger organization. Treat your employees as you would like to be treated, and they will stay loyal. That motto will also promote customer retention because he and his co-founders figured out a long time ago what other companies/ corp leaders don't understand. Happy employees means happy customers.

    Cons

    it's hard to turn away the people who want to work here because there is a lot of enthusiasm for employment at our company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Family environments, team and family unity, ease to share and collaborate on ideas, visions and making ideas become reality. Always being able to talk openly, without conflict, the CEO knows every team member in Ultimate Software by name.

    We get fed a lot, and this makes us need to go to the gym. I love that they give us choices, but it truely is a test of willpower to not overindulge!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to those who speak, and vet out any underlying problems that may be the root cause of the discussions.
