ADP Culture - It Starts with Incredible People

“The common understanding in business is that the ‘employer’ is the boss and the ‘employees’ are underneath.   On the other hand, an ‘associate’ is part of the team. So on my first day on the job, I started calling people associates and every time I saw a letter or some other piece of copy that said employee I crossed it out and wrote in the word associate. Gradually the idea took hold.”  - Josh Weston, CEO 1982-1996 

Frank Lautenberg, CEO 1974-1982, added, “The associate concept was a wonderful addition to our culture. Associates share common goals and have common missions. That’s what ADP is all about.”

ADP History – Stable, Reliable and Profitable

"We formed an effective trio, with complementary strengths--me in accounting, Joe in organization, and Frank in marketing--and very compatible in personality and business style." – Henry Taub, Founder of ADP, Inc.

Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADP) was founded in 1949 by a Patterson, New Jersey businessman named, Henry Taub under the name of Automatic Payrolls, Inc.  The company’s first account was New Era Dye and Finishing in Fair Lawn, New Jersey.  In 1958, the company changed its name to Automatic Data Processing and began using new technology for its time like punch card machines, check printing machines, and mainframe computers.  ADP’s  first full-time salesman was future U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg.  In 1961, ADP became a public company.


Throughout its remarkable 60 year history, ADP’s business model remains sound to this very day – providing transaction-based information processing and other services that are mission-critical to a client's business. Since virtually all of the transactions we perform are repetitive in nature, they also generate reliable and predictable streams of revenue that has weathered virtually every economic cycle for the past six decades.

Furthermore, through the decades, the story of ADP has illustrated a number of principles that still guide the company:

  • Focusing on business markets that offer significant growth opportunities, recurring revenue, the chance to be the industry leader, and where clients have significant service needs.
  • Embracing technological change to enhance product and service offerings.
  • Attracting and retaining motivated, talented people who are committed to our aspirations and who help us win in the marketplace.

Today, ADP is one of the world's largest providers of business outsourcing, with operations in many countries.  The company employs more than 42,000 associates globally, who serve more than 570,000 companies of all sizes – small, mid-market and enterprise.  ADP continues on its steady growth track, expanding our products to meet changing client and business needs.  With a history of financial growth that is unmatched in our industry, we are well-positioned for long-term growth and profitability.  Our long-term strategy creates unique opportunities, filled with new and exciting challenges.  That is why we say, at ADP, you’re in excellent company!

Important dates in ADP History:

1949 - Henry Taub, a 21-year-old New Jersey accountant, started a manual payroll processing business called Automatic Payrolls, Inc.

1957 - ADP introduced an automated punch card, a forerunner of the mainframe computer, with the capability of increasing efficiency and capacity for payroll processing. 

1961 - The company, now called Automatic Data Processing, Inc., went public and leased its first computer, an IBM 1401. ADP had 300 clients, 125 employees, and revenues topping $400,000.

1972 - ADP Dealer Services became ADP's third major business unit offering account and inventory service to auto dealers.  It was a business that fit the ADP economic model for success: offering significant growth possibilities, recurring revenue, and the chance to be an industry leader.

1981 - ADP's annual revenues exceeded $500 million and then doubled just four years later when the $1 billion mark was surpassed.  ADP processed the paychecks for about 10% of the U.S. workforce and became the market leader over the next several years.

1990 - Through the 1990s, clients that once were content to outsource applications to a service provider looked to outsource entire functions. They no longer wanted ADP to provide services to their HR department...they wanted ADP to be their HR department. That prompted ADP to become a professional employer organization (PEO).

1990 - Another significant growth opportunity was overseas. In 1990 Dealer Services acquired Autonom, a German company.

1995 - ADP acquired the largest payroll and human resource services company in Europe: GSI, headquartered in Paris.

2000 - The early twenty-first century saw continued growth and innovation at ADP. One example is the introduction of  GlobalViewSM – ADP’s comprehensive global service solution for payroll processing and human resources administration. GlobalViewSM enables end-to-end, standardized payroll processing and HR across multiple countries on a single platform.

2005 - Dealer Services extended its global position by acquiring Kerridge Computer Co. Ltd., the leading dealer management systems (DMS) provider to auto dealers in the UK, expanding its geographic coverage from 14 countries on two continents to a total of 41 countries on four continents.

2006 - Gary Butler becomes ADP’s fifth CEO.

2011 - Carlos Rodriguez becomes ADP’s sixth CEO.

 - ADP opens Chelsea Innovation Lab, in the heart of New York City's Silicon Alley.

2014 - ADP spins off ADP Dealer Services to create new company, CDK Global.

2014 - ADP celebrated 65 years in business, serving 620,000+ customers in 125 countries, and counted 15 years of having cloud-based software. 

2015 - ADP Opens Global 'Center of Excellence' in Bucharest to Enhance Delivery of Human Capital Management Services to Global Clients.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at ADP.


    The first interview started with a phone call. It included standard questions such as why do you want to work for adp and tell me about a time questions. This part was actually a good experience of the interview. Here comes the negative part of the interviews. They have some one different call me and they did not leave a message. I get an email that looks like it is someone from India. I reluctantly move forward and have a second interview at adp. It was going well until schedules The first person I spoke to told me no one worked past 6:30pm. I thought that was great because I wanted to be home to take care of my kid. The reason I quit my last job was to have more time at home and to take care of family needs. I was put on the spot , for they said there is mandatory overtime and you could work till 8pm. They would not proceed till I told them yes. I leave the interview and talk it over with my wife and we decide we can do it, but it made me look bad and it went down hill from there. They doubted my answers to their questions and I was told to give first and last names since one of the interviewees worked at the same company I worked at in the past. I knew when I left I was not getting the job because they told me the recruiter or the vp will call me. If it is not the vp then you're not getting the job. If the job is like the interview than I think they did me a favor It gave me a bad impression of adp.
