    I worked at Ultimate Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing Culture. I worked at Ultimate for many years and left earlier this year. At the time, I didn't appreciate the things beyond the obvious perks (fully paid for health insurance, great 401k match, etc etc..i'm sure you've read all about it below)....which was an environment where people genuinely care about you, leadership supports at a moment's notice, training resources, great office environment, etc. I acquainted myself with people who were negative, and got caught up myself in the negative energies. After leaving Ultimate, I wish I knew then what I realize now about what I left behind. Unfortunately, i quit to join a competitor and can't be rehired.

    Cons

    Can you think about changing the policy about employees who leave for competitors? I think people are allowed to make mistakes.

    Work at times got stressful (but honestly, which job does not?). I will say I never felt I was unsupported by my manager or fellow employees whenever I asked for help.

    Advice to Management

    Please reconsider rehiring policy for former employees who leave for competitors.

    Otherwise, continue doing what you are doing...I appreciate now what my former boss, and above brought to the office, making the office actually place I want to be.

    Pros

    All the positive reviews out there are accurate. The culture is amazing, and working with people of this caliber is a real treat. If you value a company that really cares about it's employee's this is the place for you. I will likely never leave this company! I started as a "Rising Star" and am now working the job I wanted to be in from the beginning. Work hard and it will pay off here.

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly, which can be the source of some growth-related opportunities. But the people-first culture is never comprised.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    I love my company so much. When they say it is all about People First, boy do they mean it! Their employees, their employees' families, their local communities, charities, etc. all are the first and most important priorities for Ultimate Software and the leadership team here. Because of that management philosophy coming from the top, it is also something that every single Ultimate employee lives and breathes every day. We truly care for each other and we are empowered to always do the right thing. That helps us to take care of our customers in a way that shows them we are genuine in every interaction and we will always go above and beyond to WOW them and make them feel they are also part of our Ultimate Family.

    Cons

    None! The only "downside" to me isn't even a real downside. I just wish headquarters weren't in FL since I prefer the North! :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep protecting our amazing culture as our #1 priority no matter how big we grow! :)

    Pros

    Amazing healthcare for the entire family, paid for by Ultimate. 40% 401K match, unlimited time off, and myriad of other benefits make working here a great experience. The product is great and only getting better, and the vision from leadership is clear.

    Cons

    None that I can think of that any other company out there wouldn't have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    CEO and People Leaders really care
    401K match amazing
    Company paid health care

    Cons

    As the company says that have unlimited PTO they really do not or at least not in IT and Product Development. People are getting questioned if they have taking more then three weeks PTO including sick time.
    Leaders in all areas of the company need to be consistent.

    I started 6 months ago and had 6 weeks PTO and came here one of the drivers coming here was unlimited PTO. Not that I want to abuse it but it should be consistent. Three weeks of PTO which includes sick days is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Need a consistent policy across all departments
