    Pros

    The culture here is fantastic. People first through and through. They practice agile development and some teams even implement pair programming (don't knock it til you've tried it). The benefits are outstanding, the frequent dinners and outings keep the teams cohesive and happy, and you're not overworked either. A great place to be and grow.

    Cons

    Many teams have to maintain legacy software which can be frustrating for some. There is only one overall product as well, so that can be perceived as a negative for some who would prefer different types of projects and domains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to expand into the SMB market and create a stripped down version of Ultipro for small businesses.

    Pros

    US genuinely cares for the employee. It's motto "people first" isnt just a marketting gimmick, it is evident in everyday staff relations.

    Cons

    Very fast paced growth of the company creates a challenging workload. Fortunately, and to its credit, management understands and doesn't impose an unfair amount of pressure to get the job done, as long as progress is continually made toward finalizing tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, too much work backlog!

    Former Employee - Product Developer  in  Weston, FL

    I worked at Ultimate Software as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It's one of the very few established companies in south florida, close to miami metro area. People are mostly friendly, they frequently organize events to celebrate birthdays of their employees every month. Some of the employees are staying there for more than 10 years.

    Cons

    Too many tiers of management make it difficult for a new employee to work freely and also to communicate his/her concerns and feedbacks. The salaries are way under the market rates and the contract-to-hire positions are very unstable. The management is highly unprofessional in keeping their words. The team leaders often micro manage junior employees in every aspect. Frequent blame games are also common. I would say if you really want to engage yourself for a long time in a core technical company, look elsewhere before joining here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay people their due shares and try to hire FT employees.

    Pros

    Most positions pay roughly 30% below market value but if you're lucky enough to get into management, the stock options can be very lucrative.

    Cons

    Long hours and the pay is below industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the starting pay, the recessions over!
