One Brand, Silos and Old Culture / Style
Director (Current Employee) – New Jersey – August 20, 2012
ADP is a "legacy" company made up of many small mergers and segmented acquisitions. While marketed as "One Brand", the organization is heavily fragmented and far behind in culture, values, technology, security and competitive compensation packages, etc. Paid time off is a joke, internally and in the market, lagging. This is further compounded by a poor work life balance, by company design and culture. High demand, little reward, heavy burnout and poor health of its employees.
There is the potential for greatness, though with a focus on profit and customer service (important), little focus on employee, work life balance and family, long term futures are poor. While many employees have been there for decades, one better plan well to retire there or face outdated skills and technology, as a whole. Those forced to leave or seeking to by choice have found this out the hard way. Some areas are changing, though this dinosaur will take years to change and without senior management support, will continue to be an uphill battle. Sad yet true. 60 plus years this way...little hope for cultural change.
possibly work there for years.
lose your skillset, fall behind in the market place, and become a dinosaur (less marketable).
