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

    Pros

    Stability, decent benefits, some good people to work with during the time there. They have a joke that nobody ever gets fired from there. It's not true, but it does take a lot to get fired.

    Cons

    Which leads to the cons. Sometimes it takes *a lot* to get canned, just because of the size of the company and the implications they have to deal with concerning UI and other legal costs of letting people go. Some states are easier than others though, so it depends on where you are, as always.

    Advice to Management

    You all micromanage people you hire while telling them they're trusted and valued. It doesn't jive. Also, your software sucks.

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

    Pros

    Benefits - 401(k) + match, PTO (if you don't feel guilty about making your coworkers cover you and don't mind working double before and after said time off).

    Training for your career after Paychex

    Cons

    Views employees as disposable. They hire you on for cheap, train the crap out of you. The incentive is that you have a 10% raise and an annual review for the standard 3%. After your first year you have very little opportunity for growth/development/advancement. They take advantage of the creative and ambitious by giving them "learning opportunities." These are of course just things of arbitrary nature to pacify and buy time. They admit to paying below market value and are strategically placing themselves in markets that have lower costs of living in order to overcome stagnate growth. Their philosophy on compensation isn't competitive and is the reason why they have an atrocious turnover rates year over year. They won't pay for talent that will keep them relevant.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change. Remember that everyone is an employee in the company, not just front-line people. MOST IMPORTANTLY - learn how to better manage talent. Stop focusing on the apple (wallstreet); begin seeing the orchard (people).
