    I have been working at Paylocity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I started my 100% remote job with Paylocity the Monday before schools closed in my area because of COVID-19. I cannot believe how lucky I am. When I was interviewing here every person mentioned that Paylocity makes you feel like family and they aren't kidding. There is how they are supporting us though these uncertain times. 1) Extra sick days that can be taking to support yourself or your family and they can be used for mental health too not just illness. 2) Weekly executive chats to make sure we informed about how the situation is effecting the company and all of our employees. 3) The company made donations to non-profits that serve each of the cities our offices are in and national organizations for the remote employees. But this is not just because of the virus they give quarterly grants to help causes employees nominate. They have also been celebrating the things we are doing with a #dogoodfeelgood campaign. 4) They have told us that they will not require people to return to the office as long as the schools/childcare remains closed. 5) They have rolled out extra benefits to help with mental health and resiliency, including a zoom yoga 2 days a week and ‎meQuilibrium. 6) We have been encouraged to bring our kids (and fur babies) to meetings. In fact my 18 year old special needs daughter asks a "Non-work related question" during our every morning stand up and it has helped us get to know each other better. Last week, I was in a meeting where a father was holding a sleeping toddler and presenting. When I first investigated Paylocity I was drawn to their values but I was worried that like so many companies I have worked for they didn't actually walk the walk. But they really do.

    Cons

    Oh my gosh, yes! Paylocity is truly a family culture that “walks the walk” every day with our values. We truly live and breathe them each day. Our leadership has been amazing with how they are guiding us through this time of COVID. They understand that we need extra sick days and might have interruptions such a fur baby or another family member during a call. I too feel blessed to know that they truly care about me. I am so glad that you made the decision to join our team and wish for you only the best here at Paylocity.

    Pros

    Leaders that Care. All of our executive leadership team has continued to demonstrate time and time again that their priorities are 1. taking care of employees and our families and 2. taking care of our clients. The way we continue to lead by example and provide tools and benefits for employees to thrive despite a unique and challenging work environment is outstanding. The best part is that all of these tools and opportunities are driven through our software and then our clients have access to the same tools, it seems so simple, but is extremely powerful.

    Cons

    NONE!!!!! I love this job and company.

    Pros

    Good company culture, working w professional, happy co-workers, remote.

    Cons

    Since Paylocity is a human capital management company, and they aggressively pursue double digit growth, some cost is to the employee. They know exactly how little they can pay. They offer fewer paid holidays than any company I’ve worked for, pay salary but require 40+ hrs to meet job requirements, little room for advancement.

    Marketing department is chaotic and your micro managed all the way up the chain to the CMO. Poor work life balance, always getting emails and tasks sent over late at night.

    I worked at Paylocity full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are good Free snacks, team engagement, and semi frequent swag

    Cons

    The current job is unreasonable. Paylocity is adding clients quicker than they can hire Account Manager and it results in overworked and underappreciated employees. They do hire frequently but not enough to accommodate the new business and the high turnover of employees who leave the company. Burnout is common and leadership micromanages to the point of misery. Every second of your day is watched (down to bathroom/water breaks) and acceptable metrics are impossible to achieve. Very little support or assistance from leadership.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback, and for allowing us the chance to address your concerns. Also, the benefits, snacks and swag definitely add to the fun of working for such a cool company! Paylocity puts a lot of effort into ensuring all employees feel appreciated, and leadership sets the tone of our company. We are concerned to hear you felt underappreciated, and about the lack of leadership in your area of work. We are always striving to get better and will keep our promise to our employees of listening to them so that we can continue to evolve and improve.
