    Pros

    If candidates have the right members of management of their side, their employment will be safe regardless of perfomance. If a candidate is willing to work in this type of environment, this is the perfect place for them.

    Cons

    This company boasts of being a top employer by inflating their turnover numbers. The organization hires a large number of temporary employees which are let go or resign in masses. These numbers are not counted in their attrition as they aren't considered employees.

    Performance is not the main factor of good standings but the ability to friend the right members of the senior management team. Nepotism is their model of operation; the top officials are either related or close family friends. This model doesn't allow qualified candidates the opportunity to prove themselves through their job performance.

    Forbes gets it wrong every year with rating this company as a top employer because the management team only allow certain individuals to participate in their survey. Due to the free benefits there are employees who dislike the organization but chose to provide good feedback because of their personal reasons and Ultimate Software takes advantage of this situation.

    The top employer status is used as a sales tool to attract clients, however they nickel and dime every customer. For being a HR company, employees are treated unfairly with poor performance documentation for obvious reasons.

    Forbes, stop using a generic survey, get the real facts...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advise. So far this model has made many members of the senior management team very wealthy.

    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

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    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!

    It comes from the top down. A leader that truly cares about his employees and shows it in every decision he makes. There's a reason Ultimate is in the top 20 of Best Places to Work every year.

    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.
