Pros

Stable company, good benefits, relatively progressive and respectful management, with rare exceptions. Knowledge gained at ADP is useful in the job market place due to ADP's wide footprint in the industry.

Cons

Some departments do not know how to have employees balance work demands against the needs for personal time. Employees (called associates) can lose out on their family and social life, and opportunities for volunteer activities or hobbies if they don't klnow how to manage their boss' requests.

Advice to Management

Be on the lookout for frontline managers that burn out willing employees. Hard workers end up leaving because they don't know how to say no. Instead, they do everything that is asked, no matter how many personal hours they give up, vacations they cancel, etc. without complaint, and then get jobs elsewhere without warning. These quiet types are valuable employees that are needlesly lost to satisfy short-term goals. Managers always wait till a valuable employee is walking out the door to address work loads. Departing associates will not complain on exit interviews, knowing full well they could be burning a bridge.

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible workplace. Opportunities for growth since it is such a large company. Stock is solid and a good investment.

    Cons

    Not a bad place to work. Sometimes policies can be traditional and change can be a little slow. But bad things are addressed.

    Pros

    It is a great learning experience. You learn the basics of sales process, and you develop well rounded sales skills. It's a big time door opener for opportunities within ADP or out of industry.

    Cons

    It is a grind. You are constantly stressed trying to reach quotas. You are selling the most expensive product in the industry and are forced to discount to earn the business. Payroll has become a commodity, and it can be hard to build value. Small business owners rarely treat you with respect. CPA partners complain of high turnover at ADP, and banks are only good if they have a lot of traffic and new accounts. Your success is highly dependent on the territory, banks, and CPA's you are assigned. Highly industrial, less affluent areas tend to be the best. In more affluent/ educated areas business owners are more prone to use their CPA or an in house solution for payroll, and the chances of convincing them the change are very slim.

    Advice to Management

    Pay dm's better.
