    Pros

    I can’t say enough positive things about this company. The culture here is the best I have ever seen. Everyone is so supportive, helpful and kind. The management is excellent and extremely understanding and accommodating. The perks and benefits are top notch. Here are a few in the Schaumburg office:
    -Free completely updated gym
    -Fitness/health reimbursement
    -Free fruit and nuts on each floor
    -Work from home option for most positions (eventually I can work from home, but being in the office is so nice I probably won’t)
    -Every desk is an optional stand up desk
    -Monthly game night with free drinks, food and entertainment
    The list goes on and on...

    Cons

    None so far. The only thing I could possibility even bring up is that things move at a fast pace so you have to be comfortable with change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Best company ever! Paylocity’s culture is AMAZING. You really do feel like a work family. The work-life balance is amazing. It can be challenging but the saying here is “Work Hard. Play hard.” They are constantly catering to the employees and finding ways to show their appreciation. They actually listen to employee feedback and really take it into consideration to implement positive change. The facility is wonderful and you don’t feel “homesick” coming into work. There is always room for advancement and they are willing to give you to the tools you need to get the knowledge you want! Everything positive you’re reading really is true. I love my job!

    Cons

    They feed us so much it’s hard to stay in shape!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work!

    Pros

    This company loves their employees, the senior leadership treats us all as equals, they're constantly feeding us! They love to spoil us and they're constantly finding new ways to improve processes. This company loves to innovate and set themselves apart and they do that by hiring people who have a competitive spirit but are driven by that in a positive manner. They always treat us with respect and everyone here is so kind. I feel so blessed to work here and they truly deserve the title of best places to work! The pay is great and full of potential, and the path to moving up is clear cut.

    Cons

    This company is moving and growing quickly so being flexible to new changes is a must!

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for all you do, and please continue to explore new positions of opportunity for the star employees to move up. You guys are already doing a wonderful job of this I just hope you keep the momentum going.

    Cons

    The training leaves a lot for you to figure out on your own, but its better than endless hours in a training room

    Make sure reps feel like their opportunity doesn't get too small. Having a large base of prospects allows us to recruit the best talent.

    I worked at Paylocity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Insane earning potential, tons of flexibility, nice to work with and become part of an important community your local market.

    Cons

    The technology used internally is terrible. For all we preach to clients about how spreadsheets are bad we are certainly not "drinking our own wine." Be prepared to do the same thing 3-4 times for seemingly no purpose. CRM is terribly dated and poorly built, excel sheet upon excel sheet, and old on-prem Microsoft software that just breaks.

    Also, it seems Paylocity gets a lot of the superstars from the payroll and HR industry, but certainly some of the rejects as well. A lot of management is new to the organization, and with bad technology and a remote work environment building and creating a team environment is tough. Be prepared to grind hard, often on your own, and have more operational obstacles to clear than there should be for a "technology/software" company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the technology and the tools to properly enable your sales people to win. The job is hard enough and competitive enough that when you come from other companies, many of whom have better internal technology, you feel like you're stepping back 10 years in time. Also, find management from within, people who have succeeded in the role, rather than someone who is likely being pushed out of ADP or Paychex.
