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

    Pros

    Great structure! The company culture is phenomenal. You are welcomed, supported and appreciated for what you do. There are great benefits and flexible hours as well!

    Cons

    I literally can't think of any other than its extremely busy during year end so you can't go on vacation Nov-Feb

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! I love that it's not micromanagement and that the managers check in constantly to see how I AM doing, not my work, but me. There's nothing but support from them!

    I worked at ADP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best for people who dont want to work hard and know how to exploit the HR system to get around things.

    Cons

    Its like a conversion hub, People singing carols in office and explaining why their religion is better. Very less focus on people devlopment and Data driven performance rating.

    Advice to Management

    Cluture is the most important thing of an organisation. This is something that needs Focus now.

    I have been working at ADP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's big - lots of people doing lots of things - new technologies are available for the right teams. Communication from upper mgmt is getting better.

    Cons

    It's big - too many people not connecting with other people and not sharing in what they are doing. Old technology must still be supported.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open between groups.

    I have been working at ADP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management is great. They really work hard to help you on your career path. I have been treated with the utmost integrity. Tons of opportunity to network and further your career internally.

    Cons

    Pay grades/structure make it difficult to grow fast internally from a monetary standpoint. You can work hard to develop your skills and increase your value all you want but you won't be able to get the role you are qualified for, if the pay grade for that position is out of your range. It's business, so pay grades are a necessary evil to provide structure but if someone has worked out to make themselves qualified for a role and that is clear to see, then there should be exceptions.

    Training was extremely high level and didn't really cover my actual job. Developing more of a structure and a plan for training would be beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    Think about being a little more hands-on when a new employee comes on board, making sure they are learning properly and have what they need.

    Pros

    Best reason to work there the push to improve and drive career path. Current management doesnt dictate growth . Through networking other individuals can obtain their own perception of you

    Cons

    Lack of communication, , favoritism, politics, non ethical behavior through favoritism . Nothing is in confidential with management , through favoritism information will be disclosed to non management which causes lack of trust. Bias behavior

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a equal opportunity, listen and be receptive to feedback from employees . It should not be a one way streak. Employees should be able to feel comfortable to provide honest feedback without retaliation. Obtain your own perception of individuals dont assume or go based off of what others say about employees
