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

Pros

The company has changed a lot in recent years. They still have a reputation as being very stiff and stuffy - strict dress code, clean desk policies, etc. It has loosened a lot. In IT, the dress code allows jeans - not quite the 3 piece suit of yesteryear.

Cons

The culture is very process heavy, and there can be roadblocks to productivity. The positive side is they know it, and are trying to address it.

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

    Pros

    Quality People
    Excellent Benefits
    Flexible Hours / Flex Schedule
    Top Notch Training - As long as you have a Customer Service background Paychex will teach you everything you need to know about payroll.
    I was lucky - during my employment there were 2 branch managers - both of which are quality people and the management team were also top notch.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be a little overwhelming -- clients tend to 'pass the buck' when their payroll isn't correct.
    Too many meetings - there are times when the best thing for the Payroll Specialists is to let them do their jobs - too many meetings can sometimes put the specialists behind and then they are forced to play catch up the entire morning/day.
    Extremely stressful - it's not like your ordering a pizza and instead of extra cheese you get pepperoni - you are working with peoples money - many of which are small mom and pop businesses and they cannot afford any mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Being a former CSS my advice would be to listen to listen to your employees a little more -- they are the lifeline of the company and without them there is no Paychex.

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

    Pros

    outside sales, good training, recruiters love sales people from Paychex

    Cons

    extremely cliquey, encouraged not to take PTO (threatened if you do), pay is ok but not the greatest. micromanagement. Favortism is definitely played. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that just because someone is a good rep doesn't mean they will make a good manager.
