    Pros

    There are some REALLY good people to work with and for in this company and the opportunities to learn is abundant. There are opportunities for growth within the company and supervisors/management encourage this, though it may take several attempts and the onset of depression before it actually happens for some. The company does its best to provide a good work/life balance and lead with values (rather than a bottom line). There are opportunities for volunteering, generous time off, full benefits right from the start and a positive attitude in most of the people you find around you.

    Cons

    There are some REALLY good people to work with and for in this company and the opportunities to learn is abundant. That said, there is quite a bit of lateral movement in the management/supervisory level. If you're interviewing with this company, definitely know what type of supervisory style works best for how you work, determine what style is interviewing you, and stay active to avoid the style(s) that affect your productivity or growth. While at the door, it helps to know someone already within the company, it helps to "fit in" with the "right" group afterwards, IF what they like is what you like. Expect what you know that follows bad management to happen. As far as pay, it's not uncommon to hear others saying they have a "side gig" somewhere in the halls.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Local sales management is good. Support team is very good. Work/life balance is good. Corporate sales training is a good start.

    Cons

    Relational sales model in a transaction based business. Business Performance Advisors cannot truly advise their prospects as the comp plan does not pay well on anything but the premium service, and you have to discount it heavily to be competitive. Lead generation through Corporate efforts is very weak. Management wrings their hands about the sales force turnover but does not do what has been repeatedly recommended. It is less expensive for them to churn and burn, then to enact meaningful change.

    Advice to Management

    Separate your Lead Generation from your Sales force. Pay the money for a real CRM instead of an Activity Tracker.

    Pros

    For starters- everyone from the CEO to the local management team truly cares about their employees & local community. The main selling point for me, as a candidate interviewing, was the support behind the service Insperity offers. Top reps make over 250K+. The relationships fostered with both employees and clients are deep and meaningful; which speaks to the high retention rate on both fronts.

    Cons

    The work can be very demanding; and returns on these efforts take a while to see.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, fun group of people to work with, decent work-life balance. Company gives back to the community and even gives paid voluntary time off.

    Cons

    Management is continuing to cower to demands from board members, causing Insperity to lose the special touch we could give to customers, which historically allowed us to charge way more than our competitors. It's hard to say how we're different now...

    Additional con: long-term employees who do not perform highly seem to be rewarded for tenure. This is not a union.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees and exiting customers are saying.

    Pros

    I wish I could think of one.

    Cons

    They haze newly hired sales people, by blowing up your deals or not helping get them through with the hope that you will leave the firm. If you leave they push the deal out to the "top producers" 25 years in business, I never saw anything like this place.
    Services are over priced.
    Bigoted management in the NYC area.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stroking your own egos and stop the floor shows at your sales conventions. Get a marketing plan, share leads with sales and get rid of the cancer which is your field management.

    Pros

    their are none. they don't treat employees well despite being an HR company. they also cheat their customers by padding their fees into a bundled number and will not allow that number to be transparent or you get fired if you tell the truth.

    Cons

    worst place i have ever worked. racist. sexist. depressing culture. incompetent management in sales

    Advice to Management

    get some talent
