    I worked at Paycor full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    -Good pay and time off policy -Relaxed and flexible work environment

    Cons

    -I was one of the few long tenured employees (turnover is extremely high) and loved it until the founder/CEO Bob Coughlin stepped down to take the chairman position on the board. When the new CEO Raul took over operations everything in the company changed. What used to be the guiding principles of the company of taking care of your employees and clients first faded very quickly. It was very clear that the new CEO was brought in to take the company public and nothing seemed to matter except the bottom line. If I were a new CEO I would probably refrain from vulgar language and fear tactics on company wide meetings. When COVID 19 first started to become news and for the first couple of months everyone was told the company was doing great and we are working to cut costs through unnecessary partnerships etc. nothing was ever mentioned about mass layoffs/ paycuts for employees. On April 17th they laid off 400 or so employees with no warning or reasonable explanation. Although severance packages and bonus payouts were high the attitude of HR after separation was almost cruel, no access to the system to get previous paystubs or tax documents (even though Paycors clients have that option available for their terminated employees). Requests for that information was met with very short and terse responses. If the company was doing so well and was planning for the future it sure seemed like quite the coincidence to lay-off that much of the workforce prior to the fiscal year end of June 30th, seems more likely that COVID 19 was used as an excuse to trim costs and bloat the bottom line numbers for the year. My guess is that shortly after July 1st Paycor will start to hire in mass.

    I have been working at Paycor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Paycor is the first company I have worked for that actually solicits AND listens to employee feedback. I have worked at Paycor for almost four years and have completed multiple surveys asking for employee input into how they can make Paycor a better place to work. From benefits, to culture, to support/resources, to the most recent “Virtual First” approach, employee feedback was reviewed and taken into consideration when determining the best ways to move forward. Culture at Paycor is great! I understand that a fast-paced environment with a lot of change isn’t for everyone, but if it is your cup of tea, you will thrive at Paycor. They truly follow their guiding principles and you can see them in action every day. Benefits are fantastic! Great PTO policy (which was updated a few years ago after reviewing feedback provided by associates). Health, dental, vision, 401k with a very generous match, disability, etc. Fairly standard offerings for medical/dental with generous company contributions.

    Cons

    As previously mentioned, it is a very fast-paced environment with a lot of changes. This environment is definitely not for everybody. As with a lot of jobs the “day to day” can be very boring. But if you can visualize the end goal or where you and the company are going, it is very rewarding. There was not a lot of room for career advancement for employees in the satellite offices. However, with some recent restructuring and the new “virtual first” approach, I am very confident that more opportunities will be available in the future. I am very excited for those doors to start opening. If you work hard, play hard and dream big, you can have a very fulfilling and challenging career with Paycor.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits/PTO, flexible, great work/life balance, good pay, great management

    Cons

    Working from home full time is tough. That is the ONLY con I can think of - I have worked for Paycor for several years. Some previous posts that are negative came from former employees who didn't feel the need to vent until after they left. Every job has some stress, especially in Sales. Also, I am a female employee and have never felt uncomfortable with the culture, management, and support I have received. If anything, Paycor supports female and minority employees MORE in order to promote diversity in the company, which I really appreciate.

    I worked at Paycor full-time

    Pros

    I worked at Paycor for more than 3 years, it is a great place to start your career. The colleagues are friendly and have no hesitations to answer all the questions you have. It is a growing company with a start up culture. The campus is beautiful and is situated right at the highway. The company is doing well coz there are some really hard working people and some who are riding along. Their work from home policies are good.

    Cons

    Office politics is high for the size of the company. There are some who don’t work at all the whole day. I could not understand the ultimate goal of the company coz the directions kept changing. Would love to see some employee retention at the top management level.
