    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great executive and sales team. Great healthcare and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Poor middle management for the most part.

    Advice to Management

    Reward execution not ideas. Make tough choices about what not to invest in. Remember that the ability to efficiently deliver products will determine the company's long term success.

    I worked at Ultimate Software as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well paid for an internship.
    Plenty of fun events.
    Well treated by full time employees.
    Brand new, flashy office buildings.
    Many different projects to work on.
    SCRUM practices.

    Cons

    Weston, FL is just ok.
    Large company with many buildings so things were not super personal.
    If you are on Genesis team, do not expect many pair programming opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    On the Genesis team, make sure there are more full time peeps so interns can get a fair amount of pair programming time. This is essential for the learning of the intern.

    I worked at Ultimate Software full-time

    Pros

    People, culture, pay, benefits, and overall environment is fun and loving. If you like payroll, this is the place to be,

    Cons

    You have to have a passion for payroll to be able to work with the software and customers everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Would recommend to give more information in the first two rounds of interviews about what the job entails. Other than that, you guys are perfect!

    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.
