    I have been working at Paychex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working for Paychex for almost four years now. I am amazed by how progressive Paychex is when it comes to IT. The technology we get to work with is cutting edge, just check out the Paychex Github site to see some of what we are working on. If you like a challenge and learning new things every day, Paychex is a great place to work in IT. Good access to training to build your skillsets and great support from management to pursue new ideas. Paychex really cares about its IT workers and strives to ensure there is a good work life balance, something that is missing from so many companies today. I enjoy heading into work every day.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting new technologies, its a big part of what makes working at Paychex so great.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paychex (Albuquerque, NM) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fast, clear, and communicative. Stephen Martinez was amazing! He kept me informed of each step and the expectations of each, and was very accessible when I had questions. It was an 8 day process from applying to job offer (which is phenomenally quick!).
