Great place to get a start
Accountant Centric District Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – December 1, 2015
Surviving here is really all about doing the activity, if you work hard you will succeed but given ADP's history and the growing number of competitors in the saturated market your business tends to be mostly customer churn with a few consultative sales sprinkled throughout.
Your given few tools aside from Salesforce.com which is incredibly innaccurate and out of date and "referral relationships" through either banks or CPAs where you are expected to forge relationships that result in referrals. BNI, LinkedIn premium, marketing automation and even basic email marketing are not provided and most leads are collected door to door.
It is an archaic model that is still somewhat relevant in service, retail and restaurant industries but the constant competition from ADP's own inside sales, the negative online presence, coupled with the fact that payroll can easily be bought online make the work feel dated and you find yourself losing to companies that are just more efficient.
