I worked at Ultimate Software as a contractor (Less than a year)
Ultimate Software puts employees first as their logo says "People first". The manager and team I worked with are very smart and humble and cares about other team members. You feel like a family and look forward to coming to the office every day. Ultimate is very much ahead on Diversity Initiatives as they are in the Belonging stage in the three stages of diversity. “Diversity is having a seat at the table, inclusion is having a voice, and belonging is having that voice be heard.” There is also a lot of focus on sustainability and contributing to society. It is also a great place if you are interested in working on open source technologies. It was a great experience for me to see a company in San Francisco which is very much focused on people, culture, sustainability, and work/life balance.
If you like very fast-paced cultures, things can be slow sometimes. I wished there was more collaboration between architecture and technical teams. Especially it will help in making the right decisions if the architecture team considered inputs from technical teams who have hands-on experience in some of the cutting edge technologies like Cloud and Big Data for a long time.
Advice to Management
Increase more collaboration among Architecture and the technical teams. This will help in making good architecture decisions as the technical teams have great hands-on experience working in some of the cutting edge technologies like Cloud and Big Data for a long time .

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (San Francisco, CA) in February 2020.
I applied through Linkedin and received an email from the recruiter. She scheduled a phone call with me where we discussed about the role and my background. After the phone call, she told me to take a test through Hackerrank. The test included a question on designing the algorithm for an elevator and writing the business requirement. I submitted the test and the recruiter told me that the hiring manager would like to speak to me over the phone. After a week, the phone interview was scheduled where the hiring manager explained to me about the role. She asked me about my background and a few behavioural questions. The interview went quite well. I had prepared a lot and read as much as I could about the company, their work culture and the product.
The hiring manager told me they will get back to me after two weeks as they were going for an offsite. I mailed the recruiter after two weeks and she told me that the hiring manager has positive feedback about me. She told me that by the end of the week I will be informed about the next steps. To my surprise, by the end of the week, the recruiter informed me that the requirement has changed and they are not considering me for the role. Instead, they have decided to keep searching. I was dejected and hurt to see the email and couldn't understand why did they change the requirement at the last moment. I didn't expect such an irresponsible behaviour from a company of such repute.
