Stable industry for a long-term career
Senior Payroll Specialist (Current Employee), PhoenixMarch 10, 2014
Good benefits (health, dental, PTO, 401k, etc). Stable industry for a long-term career. Not the best for work/life balance, as 20% of the year is blackout for PTO (including around Christmas/New Years). Compensation is low compared to workload and expected job duties plus pay caps exist within lower grade levels.

Supporting Energetic Sales Team
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Watsonville, CAMarch 3, 2014
Supported District Sales Manager (DSM) and Sales Team to achieve monthly/yearly goals. This included duties such as expense reporting and tracking, scheduling, travel, event planning, etc.

The hardest part of the job was at the end of the month when the pressure to make quota was the highest and the sales consultants were at their most vulnerable.

What – more... I enjoyed most went hand in hand with the hardest. My best days were when I gave my Director or one of the team a mental boost or just a little extra consideration that could turn their day around.

We are a tight group that supports each other through bad days and celebrates the great ones. – less

Great place to work
Core Payroll Services- Sales Representative (Current Employee), Rochester, NYFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: very high turnover
Although I feel that essentially Paychex is an extremely ethical and morally upright company to work for, each location and sales team is managed independently. I have now become the senior member of my team, and feel that perhaps my earning potential has finally reached its limit. I am seeking a new challenge with longer duration and greater earning – more... potential. – less

Enterprise Operations Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Rochester, NYJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: great company for growth
Cons: none as far as i'm concerned
Paychex is a Fortune 500 Company. My employment with them was 17 years. Paychex is a great company to work for. The wage is more than fair, promotions from within the company are always first considerations for all exployees. The HR department is always current and sharing with government regulatiions. Training of employees is the foundation of Paychex. – more... Employees are given the tools needed fullfill the company expectations and hlep all employees reach their goals. Health and well being is another area Paychex excels.I've enjoyed my career with Paychex. My reasoning of leaving Paychex is that I relocated out of New York State. – less

Antiquated technology and no ability to advance
Senior Technical Support Service Representative (Former Employee), Naperville, ILJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: friendships made
Cons: no positions to advance to
They use antiquated and old technology, and there is no way to advance with this company. They promote people based on friendships and not knowledge or experience. The only enjoyable part of this job was the friendships that I made while I worked there.
