I worked at Paychex full-time (More than a year)

Large company with brand recognition

No advancement opportunities with Sales Managers who only look at what you can do for them each month not what you have already done.

    I have been working at Paychex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits... Great Company. If you invest at least a year your income will become what you want it to be...

    Cons

    ....it takes a year... The majority of your job is developing relationships with partners (CPA's primarily)

    Advice to Management

    More money will encourage better sales reps to stick around

    I have been working at Paychex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, professional company culture, excellent sales training (Top 125 in U.S.), Work vs. life balance pretty good, great company to start sales career and move on in 1-3 years, Great reputation in the industry

    Cons

    Base pay for territory sales rep $38K (I started in 2011 with Paychex, made this base 9 years ago with another Fortune 500 company), Commissions can vary greatly depending upon performance, Very demanding job and huge learning curve, You have to bust your butt to make $75K (Conference level), reality is about $50-$65K (and this won't come easy the 1st year)

    Advice to Management

    Base pay needs to be higher to keep "true sales professionals". $38K base to start (with no negotiation for previous experience) is not acceptable. My eyes and ears are will always be open for a better offer for higher compensation. It's a no brainer. Work load vs. compensation is not comparable. More rural type territories need a higher gas mileage comp package. Let your reps sell and not have to worry so much about reporting. This is one of the main factors most reps get turned off by the job. It feels like baby sitting, instead of coaching on how to close a sale. This is all that matters! --ON A GOOD NOTE, THE SALES TRAINING PROCESS AT PAYCHEX IS UNMATCHED!
