Paychex sees their employees as numbers/stats
Management (Former Employee), Portland, ORMarch 18, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Compensation, workload, management support
Paychex has become the typical call center. It is more about numbers and stats then about people. They continue to pile on the work but do not give you the tools and support to succeed.

Payroll Consultant (Former Employee), Austin, TXMarch 14, 2015
Fortune 500 company, with excellent leadership. Honestly, I only left to pursue my dream of becoming a physical therapist. Although it was a difficult decision in leaving my team, it was the right choice long-term.

Pros: fun calendar

Paychex is a good company. They always put their employees ahead of everything. The hardest part of the job was at year end when all taxes needed to be done.

Excellent place to get your feet wet in payroll. My office had great peer and management support. The job is stressful and much is expected from each rep. All the same, I liked the environment and having a dedicated client list.

Great Company
Supervisor (Current Employee), TexasFebruary 17, 2015
Paychex is a great international company to work for if you're looking to pursue a new rewarding career. They are nationally recognized for training, IT, and ethics to name a few. Many smaller companies could never boast that claim. I came from the retail industry and the work life balance is a major plus. It is challenging at first but if you outline where you want to go, the leaders in the organization will help you there.

Not the best work-life balance
Payroll Specialist (Current Employee), Naperville, ILFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: competitive benefits and pay
Cons: very little work-life balance
Paychex' is no longer investing in their Illinois Branch. They are not replacing employees that leave the company. Although there have not been any layoffs, there are less opportunities and the future is uncertain. Work-life balance is very poor due to "blocked time" policy.

Great for recent college grads, that's about it
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: launching pad to better positions; great for recent grads
Cons: low pay, no upward mobility, unethical practices, high stress
This place is great for a recent college grad who needs to start somewhere and get something on their resume. However, if you are looking for a career and upward mobility, this is not the place for you. Low salary (and it never goes up, unless you get a promotion, which is very very rare due to the structure set in place.) There is no work/life balance. You are basically out in the field from 8-5 (not including the amount of time you are in traffic. Depending on where your territory is, you could be leaving the house as early as 6:30 and not getting home until 7PM. Culture is horrible. There is no collaboration or teamwork. Reps are always disputing over accounts and leads, managers have favorites and switch leads in the system. Very unprofessional and (for lack of a better word) shady practices. If you're desperate for a job and need to put something on the resume, put in your time here and then move on to bigger and better things. It is very hard work, for low pay (if you compare to other companies in the same field and same job requirements.)
