    I started in November and it has been an amazing experience each day. I wake up #Workhappy to go in. I am proud of what I do and my environment is positive and motivational each day.

    When I find out, I will update you. So far not one! Honestly, everyday is exciting and enjoyable. I plan on being here for a while.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at ADP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Human Capital Management industry leader

    Cons

    Recently undergoing a workforce transformation and I fear they me be too aggressive in replacing experienced personnel with new hires which is creating a stressful work environment. Time will tell if risk / reward is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't alienate long time, loyal employees for the sake of bottom line objectives.

    I have been working at ADP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - you run your schedule
    - the best company culture you've ever experienced (paid company trips etc)
    - your commission will reflect how badly you want it (grit)
    - young, enthusiastic company culture
    - fantastic benefits, paid gas & cell phone

    Cons

    - burnout your first year...don't like making 150 cold calls and walking into 40 businesses a day? An apprentice will take your spot in a heartbeat
    - high pressure sales environment on steroids. Nobody cares about the deal you made yesterday. Where are your next 10 coming from?

    Pros

    In my experience, huge businesses, like ADP, employers usually treat their employee's like numbers, but here you honestly feel like a family member. When you join, depending on your role, you go through a few weeks of training, and everyone is so nice to you. They do various amounts of volunteer work for the community and the career growth opportunities are amazing. The building is so new inside and out. Definitely going to be here for a while.

    Cons

    Far from where I live, but that's not ADP's fault. Other than that, nothing really.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    It's a wonderful place for sales. The company is sales-centric. It's nice being a part of a new project and good exposure to executives from corporate.

    Cons

    the finance department is extremely chaotic and is aiming to be something that is not defined yet. There is a lack of alignment of incentives for management and the associates. Ridiculous work hours. Lack of description. All the perks are momentary to plug holes and tend to be taken away due to shortage of associates for the insane work loads.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the whole BU Budding and focus on improving efficiency and making the right changes. This is a for-profit company and we need to act like one.
