Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Paylocity full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Paylocity has been an awesome journey. I’ve been promoted 3 times since I’ve been here and each position has brought new excitement, challenge and opportunity. I work remote and travel to our... corporate office several times a year. I love how Paylocity embraces a talent anywhere approach and really supports those of us that work remote with tools, technology and culture we need to be successful. I’ve been at Paylocity over 5 years, so I’ve seen what it was like pre-IPO and what we have grown and become as a larger public company. In the early years, everything moved really fast and there wasn’t a lot of structure in place. As we’ve grown, we have added more processes and procedures helping keep us in compliance and operating more efficiently. For me, I like more structure but some people have had a harder time with change and that shows up in some of our reviews. One of the things that is very gratifying for me is that I’ve hired a number of people on my team the last couple of years and they constantly tell me how much they enjoy what we have at Paylocity and how much better it is than their previous employer. They love how our culture is focused on work life balance and flexible work so that we don’t miss those important things in life that sometimes only happen once. It reminds me that what we have is different and that this is a great place to continue to develop my career. Because we are growing so much there are ample opportunities to grow into new positions within the department I work in or even other departments. The company cares about employees and gives back to the community in a big way. I love the people I work with and together we’ll continue to have fun and succeed as a team.

Cons

There are some growing pains and there has been and always will be change as we grow and evolve as a company but that’s too be expected and is the same at all fast growing companies.

Current Employee - Customer Success Manager

I have been working at Sprout Social full-time for less than a year

Pros

I have been working at Sprout Social for a few months now and I have never been happier professionally. First and foremost, Sprout understands that to have a truly successful business, having happy... employees is key. Yes, Sprout offers great benefits which is great and appreciated, but beyond that, Sprout has a lot of structures in place to ensure that its employees feel valued and fulfilled in their day-to-day work life. When a company shows that it cares for its employees, the employees are more motivated to do a great job and know that they are part of something great, and Sprout very much embodies this idea. For new employees, there are numerous check-ins to make sure that new hires are onboarded successfully; there is a whole new hire training program to make sure employees know the product well and get a thorough introduction to the culture of the company. Sprout has a People team, and one of their jobs is to make sure that employees have the resources they need to do their job and to do it well. Every Sprout employee is tasked with responsibilities and then provided the resources to complete that job, which sounds simple and like common sense but is not a reality at all companies, and Sprout makes that a priority. Sprout cares about everyone having the resources they need to work well together, and it is an awesome feeling to work for a company that cares not just about getting things done, but about getting things done well. Culturally, Sprout understands the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion and has events and groups that work towards educating and promoting both of these topics. The office itself in Chicago is designed thoughtfully with comfortable areas where employees can go when they need a break from their desk and ways to decompress with other coworkers, like a game room. I feel extremely fortunate to enjoy going to work every day and knowing that I am making an impact and growing professionally and helping the company be the best that it can be.

Cons

I can't think of any cons.
