    I have been working at Paycor full-time (More than a year)


    The biggest influencer for me when I made the decision to leave my company of 8 years and join the Paycor Learning team was the people. I knew there was incredible value in working alongside some of the most talented and creative people in the industry. Naturally, I questioned the value that I could bring to an award winning team when they made the decision to hire me. However, in just a few months I noticed that the team and my manager were elevating me by trusting in my expertise, my skill sets and empowering me to take on projects that stretch my abilities.

    At Paycor, I have always felt confident to speak up and be heard with leadership and my team and I know that my input is valued and encouraged. Recognition is second nature, not in a grandiose way but with simple notes and manager encouragement that are meaningful and intentional. These types of recognition make all of the difference and empower me as a learning professional.

    Not once in my year with the company have I dreaded walking through the Paycor doors in the morning. That is a testament to the confidence in the company performance as a whole, the culture of the organization including the constant mementos of appreciation that are provided to associates, the manager and leadership support as it pertains to obtaining resources and development opportunities as well as the Learning team that surrounds me.


    For a software company, there is a strong focus on the client facing technology. However, the internal IT infrastructure needs some work. The conference/meeting room technology is inconsistent when it comes to the equipment used and the reliability of it's functionality. Also, simple things like the WiFi are seemingly useless to associates which leads to daily frustrations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize, support and entrust your team.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    The job description on the job board began with an invitation to take their skills test ("to make sure you get noticed").

    Dutifully complied (took the full sixty minutes to double check my answers)...

    And returning to the apply button, 404 error. Job no longer available.
