I have been working at Paychex full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, good culture if you are young and single, rewarding. Great place to learn sales. Lots of training. Nice people overall. Felt like part of the family. Got to meet lots of great business owners. Felt like you were helping people. After 2 years, the recruiters came calling.

Cons

Frat-boy like culture. Competitive. Must have great time management skills or you will be buried. Hard to focus. Hard to give customer service after the sale. Other departments outside of core payroll seemed to run better

Advice to Management

Treat the payroll production people better! Needs better customer service.

    I worked at Paychex full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, truly a team effort. Good Branch Manager. Accrued time off very fair. Job stability in a shaky economy. I worked in this Branch 10 years before retiring

    Cons

    Heavy work load, every day was like trying to put 10 lbs of potatoes in a twenty lb bag.Some of the direct supervisors of payroll specialists do not have a clue as what pressures the specialists are dealing with.The good supervisors are as overworked as the specialists, because they care about their employees. Pay is not in line with the requirements of the job.I was thinking about going to a competitor for more money during a wage freeze and 401K match freeze. The Branch Manager got me a large raise to stay which I really appreciated. He must have gone to God.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management must look at the pay rate and manageable workload for payroll specialists, especially the specials with 2 to 3 years tenure. When the economy improves there will be a mass exodus.
