    I have been working at Paycor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is in its 18th year of significant growth. That growth provides endless opportunities to grow and gain experiences at an accelerated rate compared to other companies. There is also significant passion around the customer expeirnece and having associates succeed. The new C level team has taken great strides to align strategies and they all have an open door policy. The support I feel on a daily basis is one of the biggest pros working here.

    Cons

    The speed of growth can often cause things to feel fast-paced and we are growing into more formal processes across the business.

    Advice to Management

    The plan to evolve tools and infrastructure in the support organization is critical to our continued growth. Stay focused on making this happen.

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

    Pros

    Paycor has a vibrant culture and business goals aligned with aggressive growth. Put them together and you have a fun and exciting place to work. The people here are phenomenal and genuinely care about the work that they do.

    Cons

    As a company, Paycor is very set on growth and it's been that way for quite awhile. A negative side effect of this is neglecting to update their internal processes to sustain that level of growth.

    Advice to Management

    You can't have two #1 priorities. Either the company's top priority is growth or it's providing outstanding service to clients. Clear communication on this would be well met.

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

    Pros

    Coming from someone who left, realized the grass isn't always greener and came back, Paycor is an awesome place to work at. Paycor sees their employees as real people who have a voice, are listened to, and have control within the company. Not just a number like many organizations start doing while growing.

    Salary is very competitive and sales commissions are lucrative when performing at the companies expectations.

    Paycor not only helps employees but also helps out in the community everywhere. Many community partner events and helping communities in need.

    Cons

    Rapid growth creates small growing pains at times

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. We are hiring the right chief officers at the right time and well positioned to grow as we're expecting.

    Managers are great with having employees backs, listening, training, and ensuring your set up well for success.

    Pros

    Gained lots of experience and knowledge.

    Company grows faster than they can keep up with. Expectation is you work massive amounts of hours and do complex work fast.

    Eliminate managers that are exposing you to a lawsuit.

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

    Pros

    PTO but you cannot use it several times during the year

    Cons

    If you have any genuine interest in the HRIS space, this is not the role for you. If you have an ounce of creativity, this is not the role for you. If you value yourself and the quality of your life, this is DEFINITELY not the role for you.

    I have worked in implementation for the bulk of my career and understand the complexities that come with the role. However, implementation at Paycor is a special type of chaos where you are not given the tools / trust needed to do your job. You are constantly fighting INTERNAL battles with *every single department.* Every person in tax is a curmudgeon, sales is filled with alpha male personalities who sell with zero integrity, and other internal teams find every possible way to demoralize you and make you feel stupid if you ask for help. Also, don't take a vacation unless you want to be assigned 12 new projects that are already behind schedule while you are out. Your opinions about process, client load, or the work in general do not matter to these people, yet they are always changing things up to "make things more efficient."

    The most disappointing aspect of Paycor is they recognize employee dissatisfaction, promise to do better, but they never do. The leaders in this company are way too far removed from its employees to implement effective change. The attrition rate (people leaving the company) is too high for them to really invest in the people that are stuck there. I felt an incredible amount of shame and self doubt working at Paycor and I am so happy and relieved to no longer be there.

    Advice to Management

    Go to CVS, buy a mirror, look at yourself in it, and think about how you like to be treated... then apply those values to your employees!

    Pros

    Good co-workers and innovative software.

    Cons

    Management and executive level are bogged down in reports and offer little help.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t just say work harder and do more of the same. The reps need real advice to succeed in this competitive market.
