    I have been working at Ultimate Software

    Pros

    Top innovator in technology
    Open door to senior leadership
    Colleagues have "all-in" attitude
    Teammates are positive and supportive
    Growing effort to expand job tools and resources
    Many have admirable work-ethics and drive to do what is right (for employees and also for customers)

    Cons

    Bad managers continue to lead teams
    A lot of gossip
    It is often who you know, not what you know and how you continue to execute

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please review current managers, genuinely solicit feedback from team, and finally take action to ensure roles (start with assessing mgrs of vital client facing staff) are supported by good managers, not letting nepotism or "because they have been here many years" continue.

    Many employees feel discriminated by personal relationships taking priority over quantified performance, causing one to seek another role in organization to escape current manager. Finally, empower and let us do our jobs, stop micro-managing and support us 100%; not just when you want to look good to your boss.

    People leave managers, not companies. Please don't make us have to leave the company to seek better treatment from direct manager.

    Pros

    The benefits and culture are amazing. More over, its knowing that everyone has the same commitment to excellence and works incredibly hard to ensure our customers are happy. That includes the executive team all the through our sales and service organizations.

    Cons

    HCM technology space is demanding and fast paced, you either love it or decide to do something else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We're growing so fast, keep instilling these same principles in the new employees coming onboard.

    I worked at Ultimate Software full-time

    Pros

    The positive energy, optimism and commitment to success are pervasive at this company. The senior management were not only impressive in their leadership, vision and commitment, but always seemed genuine in their messaging that as an Ultimate employee, you were family and they wanted you to be wildly successful.

    Cons

    My only challenge was my timing in joining the company. I was an early hire in a new division that was focusing on a new market with a new product. Compensation, territory and product performance were not where they needed to be, but this is to be expected with a new business unit.
