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

    Pros

    Great culture, benefits/401k are fantastic. Great environment, wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    Operationally could be stronger, lots of room for improvement but it's in no way in poor condition.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so pedantic, be more open to change and for God's sake, change the way CSAT is calculated. Next to impossible to get a bonus, currently. One bad review and it's gone.

    Pros

    Since starting with Ultimate there has been ample opportunity to learn new skills and strong career development opportunities. I find both the work space and the leadership create an engaging and creative environment. I love that there are lots of women in leadership and find this very encouraging. We also have incredible benefits and hardworking,fun coworkers.

    Cons

    Just some growing pains that come with rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow so quickly, find was to keep that creative, start-up spirit alive!

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

    Pros

    The company really takes care of their employees. Pays for all your benefits, tries to keep the environment as uplifting and vibrant as possible. Many incentives.

    Cons

    The job itself is extremely stressful. They dont portray an accurate view of the job prior to you starting. Its a little misleading. Should pay a little more for the amount of stress involved.

    Advice to Management

    All managers should have direct experience in the positions they manage. Its difficult to respect your manager if they have never done what you're doing, can't help you if you need assistance and only tell you what to do.

    I have been working at Ultimate Software (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are great benefits for Full Time employees. Ability to work from home, makes the long hours manageable. Great Parties/Events, Great Social Groups.

    Cons

    The People First Message does not make its way throughout the entire company. When you meet with Viv, Scott, Marc, etc, you feel it, that they are genuine, but not so much further down. It's like a high school in a sense, either you are 'in' and you will get recognition, promotion, etc or you are 'out' and you won't. The focus is often on Quantity until its too late, and that can be disheartening to some as most people want to feel good about what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    For some keep doing what you are doing!!!! You know who you are. The rest focus on all PEEPS, not just the ones you referred or you worked with elsewhere. Stop giving gifts and parties and emails to soften the blow of not creating a manageable work load.

    Pros

    The people and the culture are outstanding. Provides great benefits, stock options, and plenty of incentives. Many jobs are virtual, and otherwise you're provided with autonomy to get things done.

    Cons

    Salary is below market level. It can sometimes feel like you're not being heard at a manage my level. Slow to standardize processes, document, or provide ongoing training.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the leader in culture and benefits! Review salaries against industry standards more regularly and increase fairly.

    I worked at Ultimate Software as an intern

    Pros

    Team was great, environment was casual and flexible. Management knew what they were doing.

    Generic CRUD business application was boring. Fairly often reorgs, but they didn't impact the team at all

    Pros

    Very nice and friendly culture. They care about the employees. They are open to employees ideas specially if you work in development. Very flexible to adapts new tools and methodologies.

    Cons

    There is no cash bonus which is lame. No formal annual review. Everyone gets 4% salary increase which is unfair

    Advice to Management

    Try to build a more structured environment and come up with a formal review process to help your employees in the career growth
