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

    Pros

    There is a clearly defined path for anyone who wants to move up in the company. They believe in promoting internally and retaining their talent. The company culture is amazing and I wouldn't trade this job for the world.

    Cons

    Sometimes you're required to work overtime during year end but I don't mind extra money!

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the service and support departments!

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, young work force, free fruit and nuts, excellent benefits, good training program, clear expectations, opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Noisy environment, don't always provide the best tools to perform well, no true family leave policy

    Advice to Management

    Clear procedures would be appreciated for daily/frequent tasks. The training is mostly based on learning the software and theory, and not much time was given to office and/or company procedures.

    Pros

    The most fast paced fun and challenging environment you could ever imagine. The company is providing a vehicle to make life changing money and you feel as though you are really making a difference!! There is incredible purpose to what we do each day.

    Cons

    We move so fast that sometimes we forget the basics. However, the leadership always slows down just enough that it's not forgotten for very long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!!

    Pros

    Technology + Innovation + Service are just a few reason as to why I stay. Culture is real and folks are willing to help to get teams up and running

    Cons

    Working remotely is a blessing but holds its own challenges. Creating a circle of influence is easier said than done

    Advice to Management

    Focus on development of employees and promoting from within where possible.

    This company cares about each and every employee they have. You can reach out to the SVP and he knows who you are! If you have a suggestion, people listen to what you have to say, and you can see your ideas put into place. You're not just a number.

    Pros

    As a female software engineer from a backwoods town, I know what's it's like to not be treated as a professional because I don't look like what a Software Engineer is suppose to look like. At Paylocity, I am treated as a professional based on my performance and my skills, not based on my outer appearance. That matters in today's world.

    Cons

    I have not found any yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Many companies offer what seem to be nice employee incentive packages, flexibility, etc. Paylocity lives up to all the hype, as I've been here for several years and I am continually impressed. Work/life balance is great, treatment of employees is excellent, and the culture is always warm and welcome. Outside of the atmosphere, the company commitment to technology and moving forward is very noticeable, career pathing is clear, and expansion is exciting! Absolutely enjoy working here!

    Cons

    As with any growing company, there are some smaller growing pains such as tightening of processes or even new procedures that can alter your workflow. Overall the cons are so minute that they never become a focus, and rarely do you ever hear negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good, but in smaller doses as to not completely "rock the ship". Continue listening to the employees, we appreciate having a voice and contributing to the greatness of Paylocity.

    Pros

    Fantastic remote first culture. They hire very talented people. They pay well and take their developers seriously. There are opportunities to work on lots of varied technologies and learn from people with varied backgrounds.

    Cons

    There are many teams and it is hard to stay aware of all the changes. The main application is a very large and hairy central dependency, but they are consistently working to fix this.

    Advice to Management

    Take care to not let sales dictate features and deadlines. A sales culture which is too strong can be toxic to product development and sustainability. Other than that, keep up the good work.
