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

    Pros

    Get to work from home so the schedule is flexible. My manager doesn't micromanage me. Med, Den, Vis, & GTL benefits are 100% Employer Paid for you and your family. Yearly raises.

    Cons

    I've been through 5 managers in 3 years due to the restructuring of the company.

    Pros

    Great coworkers who make it fun to come to work every day. Amazing benefits. Everyone really cares about taking care of each other and our customers.

    Cons

    You'll work harder than you ever have -- but if you're the right fit for Ultimate, you'll love doing it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I feel privileged to work here!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Continuous improvement. Relatively healthy culture.

    Cons

    Very little work life balance. Long hard hours are expected, not appreciated. Your front line manager will make or break your position. Fortunately there are a lot of good ones. Seen good friends leave due to lack of support from management.

    Advice to Management

    Was disappointed to read about Scott's compensation package. With income inequality being such a big issue in our country, I didn't expect it to infect this company as well.

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

    Pros

    They seem to really care about employees. Give gift cards away a lot. Most people write positive reviews of them on the Fortune magazine survey

    Cons

    Don’t pay well. 40% 401k match is based on $18k not salary. Management is overly frightened for their jobs (to keep up with company growth) so they can be erratic.

    Advice to Management

    Better lower management training

    I have been working at Ultimate Software part-time

    Pros

    -Working at Ultimate really isn’t work but more of a passion , I look forward to going to the office.
    -The leadership and management at all levels are one of a kind, they truly care about their team members and their input.
    -From day one in my position I felt like I was treated like part of the family
    - Training and the tools for you succeed are always provided
    -The opportunity for growth is always there
    - I can go on with more but you would be reading this review all day

    Cons

    Nothing other than realizing your C- level leaders have a better jump shot than you

    No advice needed, you all truly make it a pleasure to be an Ultipeep

    Pros

    40% match on 401K, Unlimited PTO, Company paid insurance, Great Culture

    Cons

    Not much. The only comment I have is there need to be more baby boomers. While I think it is great that there is a lot of fresh young talent they have no direction or guidance from experience people
