Pros

The training was excellent. I could take the training and apply it to any type of sales position. I never thought of Paychex as a final destination, but it was an excellent development opportunity. I'd take a job with them if you could give it a couple years to develop.

Cons

The down side at Paychex is pretty standard compared to what you'd find at most corporate sales jobs. Constantly having a boss' boss who thinks calling meetings on Friday afternoon in the office is a good idea. This is of course a regionally isolated case, but it's still the case. District sales managers want to see you sell and put money in their pocket-less of a direct concern for the company's bottom line. Regional managers have more of a focus on the bottom line and somehow believe a 4pm, Friday sales meeting or training will ultimately increase the bottom line. Not true, in my opinion.

Advice to Management

When sales reps are hitting their numbers, they must be doing something right. Instead of constantly challenging successful reps to adhere to traditional structure and policy, try enhancing performance by integrating tradition with innovative ways of being successful.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good except that they took away the 401k match. They are bringing it back in January, but it will only be 2%

    Cons

    New CEO has not been named yet, but the place has a revolving door. Culture is changing and the top reps are leaving due to micro management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing the competent reps. Make operations more accountable for service issues. Make managers more accountable for their actions.

    Pros

    Great Training to learn and move on

    Cons

    Pay is horrible unless your in sales, no respect for the PRS's who keep the clts with the company. All Paychex cares about is the bottom line, regardless of who they step on to get there.

    Advice to Management

    I know sr. management has beaten the CSS's down, stick up for your prs's, your the only help they have.
