    I have been working at Ascend HR Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ascend has a fun-loving work environment. We work hard, play hard and build great relationships with co-workers. Employees always challenge each other to simple competitions ranging from weight loss and ping pong to healthy eating and cooking. Co-workers at Ascend become you second family.

    As a small company each employee has the opportunity to have his/her voice heard and can have a noticeable impact on the success of the company.

    Cons

    Even though new ideas are always welcome sometime it is hard to get change to take root. A good idea may not last long due to constant change in the company or the industry.

    Pros

    Ascend HR Solutions has a great culture surrounded around creating a positive environment for employees and a great experience for their customers. The management team listens to ideas and works as a team to implement continual change for the better.

    Cons

    Ascend HR Solutions went through some transition with employees about four years ago causing some disconnect for a few months. For the last 2 1/2 years service and communication has been much better.

    Advice to Management

    Look for opportunities to add new and fun features for employees.

    Pros

    Not as obviously crooked as others in the PEO industry; benefits are decent; most people there try most of the time; they have some nice perks in their UT office.

    Cons

    Mediocre customer service; dysfunction between UT and AZ operations; out of touch with local competion; no real competitive advantages; internal conflicts.

    Advice to Management

    Create the service/ value propositon and make sure no aspect of the payroll or HR functions hinge on only one person, so cross train. Otherwise one person's absence or failure removes that element from the product spectrum. Proactively identify HR needs of the client and provide high quality solutions, and document this as a selling tool.

    Pros

    Lovely enviroment, many benefits including: every other Friday lunch, renting out movies theatre yearly, fun enviroment.

    Cons

    No raises for 7-years (freeze). Management does not listen very well to employees. Management 1 to 1-2 employees. Most monies go to management. Some manager should not be managers - no people skills.

    Advice to Management

    Raisers are essential to keep moral up - even if it is just $0.50 a year. Some managers need to learn people skills - no one should be treasted badly.
