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

    Pros

    Amazing culture, amazing leadership, amazing software and HAPPY customers!

    Work from home and unlimited earning potential.

    The company from the top down truly cares about you, you don’t feel like just a number.

    Truly easy to use software backed by amazing customer service!

    Cons

    I really can’t think of anything. Leadership from the top down is great. Implementation is an amazing experience as well as fact that departments actually talk with each other providing a great customer experience!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Your building a team of engaged employees who love what they do!

    Pros

    Unbelievable culture! I am fairly new to Paylocity and have been blown away with the talent level across the organization. Seems like everyone up to the top leaders in the organization has an open door policy and willing to help you grow. Love the approach to educate and serve our clients with emerging research and trends impacting their world and truly being a thought leader in a crowded industry.

    Cons

    A lot of information and resources to digest. Be ready to learn and embrace the speed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide valuable content and promote collaboration amongst teammates. The energy and atmosphere is what makes Paylocity great.

    Paylocity only hires great talent. Therefore, only "A" players should apply.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up. Thanks for making this the best career decision of my life.

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

    Pros

    Remote position so no commuting required
    Awesome supportive coworkers within the teams
    Stable income
    Nice offices if you have to go in

    Cons

    Massive changes made by senior management in a vacuum
    Preferential treatment is given to those who reinforce upper management’s beliefs, all others are left to clean up the mess
    Former ideals like client experience and team player are used by the chosen few to brow beat others into making up for the failures of others
    Since going public this company has become all smoke and mirrors with little substance.

    Advice to Management

    Own up to your decisions and deal with the consequences. You can’t tie our hands, give us no instruction and then blame us for failing.

    HR needs to monitor the behavior of the executives and senior managers for abusive practices, specifically towards women and those over 30 years old. Find a way to empower the employees effected to come forward with issues without fear of retribution.

    Pros

    The company is great, but the department ( Finance) is way out of touch and does not support its own employees when personal health is an issue for them.

    Cons

    Benefits are great, but they come with a big cost sometimes- your own health

    Advice to Management

    Always be supportive of your own employees.

    -employees

    Management wasn’t bad,everyone worked well together.

    Cons

    They preach real big on employee engagement. They don’t really care too much about their own employees. The company culture was once AMAZING and since has been going down year after year. After becoming publicly traded, they are falling in the same category as your ADP and Paychex of the worlds. Also, if you don’t work well being micromanaged, looks elsewhere. Just do your research and make sure this is the fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep that “small family” value you once had...
