    I worked at Paychex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paychex is a great opportunity for a sales professional. They offer competitive products which are well known in the market. The company culture is fun and they attract good talent.

    Cons

    If you don't want to get into management, there is little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Paychex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Flexible work schedule and the great health insurance benefits is the only positive review I can give this company.

    Cons

    Insurance Agency is being run by non-insurance leaders. Company wants to be competitive in the workplace but does not realize that payroll and health insurance are very different. Internal employees have attitudes with sales employees because of the flexible schedules and there is NO partnership across sales teams. I never felt welcome or secure in my position. Also, lots of training on the same material. Trainers are not talented and were put into position because they were having relations with managers in another department. You have to share rooms while traveling. I realized after a year that HR was not paying me the correct salary so they had to cut me a check with a years worth of backpay. Lots of internal "relations" occur therefore a lot of movement in positions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to why clients are not happy with Paychex rather then blaming internal/sales employees.

    I worked at Paychex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paychex has excellent training and pays pretty decent. It will look great on a resume and can open doors down the road!

    Cons

    Too many divisions and salespeople from each division do not always see eye to eye.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to get on the same page in regards to the different divisions working together from a sales standpoint.

    Pros

    Paychex offers great initial as well as ongoing training. They have a a good name in the market so prospects feel good about using you. There is a definite need for the services that they sell. If you do a good job then you will be rewarded with plenty of incentives. There are several places you can turn to when developing referral sources.

    Cons

    It seems as though moving into management is the only way for a salesperson to grow professionally. If you are not wanting management there is not much room for growth. There are several divisions within the company and they are not all on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if a long term salesperson could have other avenues for advancement outside of becoming a Distirct Sales Manager perhaps Senior or more specialized roles.
