Great physical environment. Accessible Management. Unobtainable expectations. Insufficient training. Exceptional co-workers. Year End tasks extreme. Work/Home skewed towards Work. Great location.

Implementation (Former Employee) –  Norwood, OHMarch 23, 2016
Good company but push to go public hard on some departments. Main headquarters are very nice, the gym makes difficult work life balance easier to manage.

Implementation Analyst - Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSJanuary 16, 2016
One of the single best companies I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Excellence and caring in management. Opportunities for continual education to advance forward in the company, great leadership, and they do not micromanage.
Pros
Easy access to learning - online academy
Cons
Can't think of any

Cliquish mean girl environment, run by first or second year ba bachelors.
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHDecember 25, 2015
My best day was my last day at Paycor. The "career" turned into a tech support job. Run.

First or second year graduates, with no real-world operations experience, make all the decisions because upper management has no idea what to do with a company that's grown too big for tgem to know how to support, bc of the limited depth of knowledge on the leadership teams.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Too many to list

Don't work for the UX department
UX Designer (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHAugust 14, 2015
UX team is deteriorating and the new head of the department has no idea what he's doing. The old head left and they hired someone new despite our protests. He isn't receptive and works out of the Texas office so he's only around one week per month. There's a very low ceiling there and you will spend more time in meetings than you will actually working on anything. There's a lot of internal drama you don't want to get involved in.

Just don't.
Pros
Nice building
Cons
No advancement, slow development speed, cut corners, bad product management.

Do NOT walk, but RUN away.
Sales executive (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNFebruary 6, 2015
That is unless you like working with slimy people for low wages. That is unless you like office politics instead of merit-based awards. These people are so cliquey that they make MEAN GIRLS look good. Awful, awful people to work for. They product and service isn't much behind that.

A lot of great ideas for creating a "best place to work" but challenges with working through a variety of obstacles impacting the end result.
Senior Manager, Tax (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJanuary 20, 2015
The physical environment was designed with the employee in mind; innovative and positive.
Overall, the management team is cohesive and collaborative; committed to getting the job done
The company is relatively new; going through a lot of growing pains; impacting consistency within departments, communication, clear direction, shifting objectives, etc.
The most difficult part of the job is dealing with the lack of direction, guidance and understanding the internal politics of "who's who".
One of the best parts of the jobs is the overall concept of creating an employee-eccentric facility. The rate of growth and tenure of the company creates a lot of unforeseen challenges.
Pros
Exciting growth; great facility
Cons
Inadequate training, lack of structure and support for new roles

This growth company will keep you very busy
Software Implementation Consultant (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHSeptember 13, 2014
Head down, on the phone, working all day long and plan to take work home with you too.

Nice people, great new building.

I appreciate the fact that Paycor is growing but the workload is crushing and unsustainable for me personally. Management is constantly trying new ideas and improvements but that in itself is disruptive.

Great place to work/tough place to work? I think it depends on who you are and what you want out of your job/life.

This is not the company you are looking for
Major Market Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNAugust 5, 2014
This is a turn-and-burn company. There have been at least 10 people quit or fired in the four years they've been in this area. So either they don't know how to hire the right people, or they are what they are: turn-and-burn. And it's selling payroll. How boring is that?
Cons

Poor Management
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHMay 31, 2014
The pay is good, but middle management can't seem to get over themselves long enough to let anything get done. No good opportunities for advancement, whether technical or otherwise.

Strange, cliquish climate, not for those over 40
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHApril 14, 2014
The 'little guys' get disrespected. If you're not a hipster or an overweight, catty payroll or tax specialist, you're out of the clique. A minority of really good people, but far too many unfriendly ones - typical Cincinnati hostility. Too many inept managers. As someone else said: My best day there was my last day.
Pros
decent benefits
Cons
high stress, largely unfriendly climate, managers who have no business being managers.
