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

    Pros

    I didn't know where to put this, but am just amazed at some of the reviews I have seen, specifically the negative ones. Let me first say no company or job is ever perfect, even if you are self-employed, and there will always be someone that feels underpaid or feels like the company doesn't treat them well, the list goes on and on. For myself, I made a career change for the third time, leaving a company I was very loyal to and thought I would retire from, but unfortunately they did not value me or my work or use my experience to it's fullest capabilities, which brought me into a new industry with a growing company that is still exciting to this day. No day is ever the same, I love our leadership and management. I love how Paycor gives back to the community and its clients and my involvment with that. I would say to those both current and former employees, depending on the department, there may be some challenges, but I can only speak from the area that I work directly in, but at the end of the day you control your destiny, so if you are unhappy, maybe it's time for a change, new position, new company etc. Paycor is definitely a fast paced and growing company, so I would say for potential candidates, if that is not for you, then Paycor is probably not the place for your next career choice. They definitely care about their employees and families. I have not seen one red flag in the two years I have been here, and trust I was looking for them in the first few months when I joined Paycor. My manager and leadership are very transparent about the company and their mission, and I understand how my role plays into it along with responsibilities. For potential candidates, do your research as I did on Paycor to make sure it is a good fit. Although this was an industry I never worked in, I did my research on the company, it's software, and it's competitors. Research the website, reach out to someone that is currently employed there. Next, make sure your background and resume fits the position. Companies will train on some things, but they expect you to have the minimum requirements, and too many times I see people not getting an interview, or not making it to the next stage and it is because they interviewed poorly or just plainly fluffed their resume. I joined Paycor, mainly for the culture, sure the compensation package was very competitive compared to industry, but the culture, the atmosphere, the people I work with day to day and the people I interviewed with, were very personable, educated, professional and answered every question I had. Not to count, their software is flawless, the most easiest to use in my opinion.

    Cons

    I can't really classify this as a Con, but again very fast paced company with a mission. If you are looking for a place to be stagnant and just have a standard routing job, Paycor is not the place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, I am and will always be a strong advocate for Paycor.

    Pros

    Great company if you are looking to move up the ladder. There’s a strong sense of building employees careers. Very motivating.

    Cons

    It’s payroll. Work can be repetitive and overwhelming at times. Especially during year end, sometimes you feel that there isn’t enough time in the day.
