Pros

Stable company that will be around for a long time. My management has always been flexible with my work/personal life by allowing me to work from home when needed. Sales and Service have the most people and the best chance at advancement.

Cons

Salraies are OK to below average when compared to other companies. If you are not in a Sales or Service position, you will find fewer opportunities for advancement. Sales has a tendency to set the marketing strategy.

Advice to Management

After recently letting go several long-time employees, overall morale is low and there does not seem to be any attempts to change.

    Former Employee - District M in Lenexa, KS
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good Training... contrary to overwhelming support
    Great Resume builder
    Good comp if you produce
    Good Benefits
    Good upward movement... if you know people

    Cons

    Very Large company
    *45,000 employees - often get lost in the shuffle
    *In 5 years with ADP received a $25 Christmas bonus (1 time)
    *Numerous client issues because service cannot serve the large number of clients
    Lots of competition
    Market is already saturated with the big 3 (ADP, Paychex, Quickbooks) - you must create believers.
    When you resign - they choose to fire you - benefits stop that night!
    Very boring product/service. Hard to have passion about what you do... A means to an end if you care about what you are doing with your career/life.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers only from within. Many managers are hired from outside without any "real" ADP experience. Difficult to respect them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent benefits! Remote positions available. Solid core training available for technical or functionnal positions. Many divisions to work in - hence mobility.

    Cons

    Cronyism is rampant. Diversity appears only in lower level positions. They get rid of long-time, good employees by creating bogus performance issues leading to either termination or resignation - not a good place for "over 40" workers. Poor management. No"real" employee development. Lots of talk about diversity and employee development - but not "practising" this.

    Advice to Management

    For Senior or Executive Leadership. Watch for trends relative to employee management. Directors and managers are not telling you the whole story. You are losing excellent employees because of personal preference rather than for good business reasons. Business operations decisions are being made based on Director-level 'opinions" rather than facts or field experience. Managers say the "seek" employee input, but they don't "listen" or really utilize it. It's all "lip" service. If ADP wasn't the largest in its industry, it would begin to lose business because it is NOT meeting client needs. Right now, ADP is a "safer bet" choice rather than a "preferred" choice for clients. When the economy turns around ADP will see a downslide in client retention.
