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

    Pros

    Cutting edge products, inspired leaders, employee-centric, leaders that walk the walk. It's the multigenerational and highly diverse people that translate our leader's vision into a unique product that is transforming every single client. This is now an essential global company that will touch everyone!

    Cons

    Transformation can be a challenge if you're not a change-agent, you must be agile and embrace a trust-culture. If you're looking to take a passive role this place is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on why we're here. Do the hard work still needed to remove layers, flatten and right-size. Continue to be an inspiration for employees to make an impact every day.

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive pay, great work life balance (probably Ceridian's best quality they really strive to make sure you have the ability to take time for yourself and have a home life), upper management really strives to help everyone be successful.

    CEO takes time to talk about organization changes with everyone and not just upper management, so you really know what is happening within the company. David Ossip really cares for his employees and it is very well noticed by how much he strives to perfect work life balance, create a sense of purpose within the company, and really be as transparent as possible (he tells every employee his personal email at the end of every meeting and actually will respond to personal questions).

    Cons

    Advancement is relatively slow as there are so many young employees, cross communication between some teams is lacking ie sometimes we wouldn't know new processes were in place until they were already in effect for several days or weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work but try to notify the employees of more changes within systems even if they seem very small.

    Pros

    Exciting fast paced environment. Ability to work from home a few days a week. Provides you with the equipment you need.

    Cons

    Training. My "buddy" was not very helpful at all. I learned most things on my own by trial and error. Created a very hostile environment when I was just trying to learn.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the "buddy" a new hire is paired with is willing to take extra time to train the new hire. More structure in regards to training.

    Pros

    The Best place I have ever worked, the give us the option to work from home amongst several other benefits. This is the only place that where I have ever worked that the Senior Executives actually sit at your desk and help you with work or, will sit with you personally and address any concerns you may have. All the way up to the CEO.

    Cons

    I don't have any to be honest.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job!

    Pros

    There are so many amazing reasons to work for Ceridian.

    -The Executive leadership team is incredibly transparent and helps you know how you contribute to our success.
    -There is a strong sense of "team". We all work together for the greater good of our people, our customers and our company.
    -Your opportunities to expand your career are tremendous.
    -It’s all about our people. Every decision is made based off of how it impacts our people and their success.
    -You get to work alongside amazing individuals or as I like to call them, champions every day.
    -We have the best HCM product in this space. And we continually innovate at a rapid pace.
    -We work really hard but play hard too.
    -We embrace, promote and celebrate diversity and equality.

    Cons

    If you are not someone who likes to move fast or be pushed to greatness every day then Ceridian is not the place for you. We work extremely hard, have high expectations but celebrate success all the time. If you want a job where you can just maintain then you should look else where. We desire the best and brightest and expect discretionary effort from everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing the vision of where we are headed. People love understanding what our future looks like and more importantly their role in our success. Keep it up. The change and transformation taking place is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Celebrate the little things. And continue to focus on our people. It’s making a difference.

    Pros

    If you want to feel appreciated regardless of your title or role, this is the place to go. The company continually displays how important it is to care for their people and I truly appreciate a company that does so. Every day I see it and it means so much.

    Cons

    At this time I don't see any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work. It means so much to people.
