I worked at Ceridian full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Not too many pros. EEs have been able to work virtual from time to time, but that has never been a consistent policy.

Cons

Company is currently privately held by a hedge-fund investment group. Ownership has slashed every where. Jobs that can be, are outsourced off shore, or to undesirable US locations, w/ no relo.
Lay offs multiple times a year for the last 5 years. Company has been cut back almost to the point of unsustainability.

Look for the ownership to 'dump' Ceridian in Nov 2012, possibly as an IPO and bundled with DayForce. Don't be fooled. They are developing their next generation PR/HR solution around a mediocre time solution (Shouldn't it be the other way around?) This promises to fall short of the functionality they are abandoning. It will be too little, too late, and will not be able to compete with the new ADP product suite.

5 years is the mark where federal law allows the corporation to be sold off in parts. This occurs in Nov 2012.

Advice to Management

CEO Stuart Harvey, is a great leader, and a welcome relief to prior leadership. He was brought in for a purpose, though. He is to trim the company to the bone, make it look good on paper, and sell off the parts that the hedge fund ownership doest not want to keep (all but Comdata/SVS). Do not look for any of the current management to be in place 6 months from now. They will be taking their $$ and running.

    I worked at Ceridian full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has some good people with long tenure. But, a lot of those folks are just buying time and not engaged.

    Cons

    Too many changes. Revolving door in management.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it. Get rid of PE, they served their purpose now move on.
