    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It feels good to represent a company with intelligent leadership, unblemished integrity, and a track record of continuous improvement. Paylocity just keeps getting better and better.

    Cons

    This is the most challenging job I have ever had. Success requires one's unrelenting commitment at all times. Yet if it were easy, I probably would have moved on years ago. The complexity of it all is what makes Paylocity a full time calling, not just a job. I pour my energy into the company and am paid back ten fold.

    Advice to Management

    Continue taking care of your top people and they will never leave. Paylocity is a part of my identity. I can't imagine working for anyone else.

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

    Pros

    Paylocity has experienced tremendous growth through the years and has a strong employee-centric culture. I personally have been enriched by my experiences and consider it a great place to work. New approaches to traditional methods are valued. There is limitless opportunity for those who can adapt, grow and evolve with the changing needs of the company.

    Cons

    The growth can create unique challenges like defining and redefining processes and engaging the right people when new pathways are forged.

    Pros

    Incredible Leadership since day one! Remote work life. Personal and Professional Growth is encouraged and celebrated. Working for a company like PCTY has instilled pride and privilege. I have spent many years implementing new clients. I am overjoyed by the excitement our clients experience when they see the ease of use and simplification of our systems. It is an honor to support such wonderful products and clients. I am responsible for the client relationship and product utilization. In this role, I am allowed the freedom to share and evolve the PCTY client relationship even further. As a co-creator and a client advocate I have the ability to reach infinite limits. Proud to be a PCTY employee! Cheers to another 8 years :)

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Paylocity almost 9 years and have seen many changes and growth over the years. The same top leadership has been in place all of these years and the organization is really well run.

    Investing in our clients and our technology is the top thing I appreciate. The company could take actions to drive profits and stock price, but rather reinvests heavily in technology and client resources to offer the best experience for current and future clients.

    Growth can be a challenge to any organization. Paylocity has done well to maintain the culture we've had since I started. My colleagues are like a second family. We work together to support clients and support each other. Service has sometimes been challenged with growth and has always retooled and developed new strategies and programs to continue to offer clients a great experience.

    Income opportunities are very strong for those that will work hard and dedicate themselves.

    Cons

    Growth has been challenging to the service organization at times, however it's also been a positive as it has driven the company to new initiatives and new models of service to offer continuous improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep managing to the future and invest in our technology, our clients, and our people

    Pros

    Being remote has so many perks and all have a positive impact on my personal life and work life. We provide a product that actually has better expectations when the client starts to utilize the technology we use and develop. Compensation is great when you are hitting your goals. Once in a lifetime trips every year for top performers.

    Cons

    This is a challenging industry and your first year is a struggle, as it should be expected. Just takes time to get your feet on the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Culture and keep promoting internally.

    Cons

    Can feel like you're on an island so it's important to stay connected as a sales rep when you work virtually
