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

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Tons of upward mobility. Modern, fun environment and tons of opportunities to learn skills that you will have for the rest of your life.

    Cons

    The account manager position is not fun. It's a great foot in the door, but I was miserable. It's not technically a standard call center, but it can start to feel that way. You get promoted within the first year usually though!

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

    Pros

    -I feel appreciated and valued as an employee.
    -Listens to employee feedback & make positive changes based on it
    -I started in the entry level position of Account Manager. After 6mos I was making more at Paylocity than my previous job I was at for 10+ years.
    -Transparent and honest
    -Growth/Career Development, they even hired an internal Career Coach in Idaho
    -Continued education and resources
    -Schedule/Operations hours
    -Holidays off
    -Benefits like health insurance, 401k, Employee stock purchase program, tuition reimbursement, vacation and sick time.
    -Management. Director at the Idaho office, Gina Centioli, is an asset to Paylocity.
    -Upper management is approachable, even to entry level employees
    -Focus on diversity
    -Community involvement/volunteering
    -Standing desks
    -Work station equipment is new and functions. (unlike my last company where computers where 5+ years old)
    -Relaxed dress code
    -Healthy snacks in the break room
    -Break room coffee is tasty and there are several options
    -Free office Wi-Fi
    -Game rooms
    -During our busiest time of year there is a lot of catered lunches
    -Great Christmas party
    -Our products are great and easy to use.

    Cons

    -Biggest con is also a pro, we are growing fast and that can keep us busy. Can be overwhelming at times, but management understands and appreciates it and rewards it. We say "work hard, play harder."
    -The entry level position of Account Manger can be overwhelming and stressful. In retrospect, I found it was an important role for providing experience and developing my career.
    -Vacation black out during our busiest time of year, Dec-Jan. Will probably work OT as well, but OT is not mandatory.

    Advice to Management

    -Reevaluate dedicated Account Manager model or focus on lower client loads. It can lead to quick burn out and frustration.
    -Clearer expectations of job and responsibilities from the start of the hiring process. (I've heard this is being addressed. I felt once in the role expectations were clear.)

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Direct manager is very transparent with expectations, and is doing an increasingly good job of recognizing hard work.

    Cons

    People will gripe about how things _used_ to be, compared to now. We're making strides to grow, this is going to happen anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent with goals, expectations, and celebrating hard work that is done well.

    Keep doing what you are doing.

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

    Pros

    Paylocity has been growing quickly and the changes have been really exciting. Along with it are many new positions opening up all the time. Paylocity likes to promote within and this leads to a good chance of moving around within the company if you'd like to

    Cons

    With the rapid growth, there's also been some difficulty finding the ideal tools everyone uses day in and day out. In the few years I've been here there have been a few large moves from one tool to another that caused some frustration within

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I love the changes that have been made, even with tool choices, and it's been fantastic that you prefer choosing employees within to fill new positions

    Pros

    Work life balance is amazing.

    Cons

    Benefits are good but I know we can make them more affordable for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on focusing on your employees as you have done so far, make them happy and they will make our clients happy as well.

    Great leadership, on going training, work life balance.

    Cons

    Base salary. I’ll never understand how a company doesn’t offer adjusted salaries for employees that live in places like New York and California. How can you pay someone in Jackson Mississippi the same as someone in New York City or San Francisco?

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people / team are the best part of working at Paylocity. We've had many opportunities to engage in team building events during work hours but outside of work. The atmosphere is very casual.

    Cons

    I'm not sure where the work life balance that other's have raved about comes from. I wish there was more flexibility with hours IE coming in an hour early and leaving an hour early / taking a morning off or working from home as needed as opposed to very set schedules. Not being able to take the days before and after holidays off / not having Christmas Eve, Friday after Thanksgiving as company holidays is new to me and definitely doesn't provide that "work life balance" when the rest of our family and friends are off those special days.

    Advice to Management

    Consider rethinking holidays / flexibility

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Opportunity for career growth
    Rich company culture
    Focused on development

    Cons

    Ambiguity as company experiences rapid growth is manageable, but can be jarring if you are unprepared for it.
