Not the culture they sell
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FLJune 21, 2017
Paylocity is a great company... On the outside looking in.
They will always take the clients side, and they are quick to repremand you,.
Training is underdeveloped and then they expect you to be 100% knowledgeable on the floor,
Their management fails you,.
They don't take time to truly invest in who they hire,.
People gossip. Team leads and managers,
Hard to make close friends,.
At the end of the day... No matter how much free food, or company gatherings they have.... That's just a momentary blip in the actual reality of the company,.
The culture they boast about is no culture... It's a numbers game, and employees are dispensable, No loyalty to employees.
Pros
Free fruit and nuts. Free beer and wine at the few and far in between events
Cons
Managers and TLs go against hr policies, They gossip and are not professional, training lacks, . Favoritism, Hr is on Management's side, . No true loyalty to employees.

A really relaxed place to work
Account Manager II (Current Employee) –  Lake Mary, FLMay 10, 2017
Relaxed place to work but not great for advancement depending upon who you know and compensation is below average for the knowledge base and type of position.

Just the interview process.
End User Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILMay 8, 2017
Their interview process is ridicules. Your put in a room with so-call genius and try to ripe you apart. They want to see if you crack under pressure. Manager, and Supervisor want you to have quick resolution for every situation. They are living in fantasy land.
Stay away from this company! Obviously, the person they hired when this position was originally posted back in late December of 2016 had enough. They need to fired all of them. "Please stay away. No place is perfect - just keep looking.
Pros
none
Cons

Account Manager II (Former Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILApril 18, 2017
Paylocity is an excellent company if you are on the tech side. Any other position due to constant leadership and format changes will frustrate you...Seems to have no direction.

It's a job if you're desperate.
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FLFebruary 14, 2017
It's a great company on paper. The training program left a lot to be desired. You'll be told you have support, but that's not how it actually works. It's a case of the blind leading the blind with new account managers helping even newer account managers.
Pros
Starting pay, snacks and food
Cons
leadership (immature TLs and management), lack of support

Ok place to work
Account Manager - Mid Market (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILJanuary 26, 2017
When I started the culture was very family oriented but has turned into more of a environment where you honestly aren't made to feel welcome but like a number.

Very Basic Environment, Fairly New Facility
Mailroom Clerk Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Springfield Township, NJSeptember 22, 2016
Fast paced environment. Me along with coworkers would work non-stop from about 8-9AM until anywhere from 7-9pm at night daily, Monday to Friday. We only had a staff of 5 including myself. The hardest part about the job would be the days where the payroll machines would stop working and we would basically be at a standstill until they finally got the computers fixed and would then be hit with a ton of checks to process. The most enjoyable part was being able to know that i seamlessly helped hundreds of thousands of people receive their pay in a timely and secure manner no matter the situation at hand. Whether we were short of staff or the couriers were late, we still got the jobs done daily.
Pros
No cutting of hours.
Cons
Machines held us up too much.

Flexible but erratic place to work
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILSeptember 9, 2016
Change is a constant here and that is wonderful--however, many are unable to handle the pace and cannot keep their cool. This can be a wonderful place to work and has been for me. But, I cannot say the same for others, despite having been very productive, good natured employees. Nepotism reigns.
Pros
nuts and fruits in break rooms
Cons
Claim to be racially diverse but very uncomfortable with different cultures

Professional Services Consultant (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILAugust 28, 2016
Best company i've ever worked for. They respect your personal life and understand things happen and you may need to take time off here and there. Many incentives in some departments. Great young culture with a ton of fun people and different personalities. Tons of growth opportunities. Unfortunately until you put in a few years the pay is not to great.

Nepotism reigns and Managers behave like children
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILAugust 24, 2016
Management at this company is very very poor. Client Services has a few great managers but those in other departments love to drink and get drunk (with alcohol and power). These people are mean and racist. Not a good place to work. Stay far away!
Pros
free fruit and nuts in break rooms
Cons
Managers who act like kids, poor compensation

Overall, good company. Still growing rapidly, however the compensation definitely needs to improve.

The work life balance is great, as the company allows you to have a lot of personal freedom.

Good Company...My Department...Not So Much
Benefits Specialist (Former Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILJuly 12, 2016
Inefficient Management
Low Pay compared to similar companies. I believe this is due to my area being mis-classified as something that it is not.
Cool Co-workers
No Advancement due to Management
Management Promotes based on who they like instead of who would be best at the job. They don't even allow you to apply for the job or know the spot is open.
Everything is made up as they go along.
Unable to work remotely but the company raves about being advanced and we have the capabilities. Every other department works remotely even other benefit areas.
Management can pick and choose what positions they want to let you apply for. If they say no you are unable to submit an application.
The people you work along side of are nice and work with one another to get the job done.
HR department is fragmented and not very helpful. There's 50,000 HR employees but everyone says not their job or are unavailable.
Pros
Casual work environment, 401k match, Friendly Co-workers, Community/Company Events
Cons
My Department

Web Benefits Support Specialist II (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILJune 15, 2016
Paylocity is a great company to start your career! They are a very laid back organization that offers a great work life balance. The other team members are exceptional as everyone gets along very well, and works diligently to accommodate client needs.
Pros
Great management, and great culture
Cons
The compensation that is offered is a little below average, and although there is some advancement opportunities, depending on the department, you may hit your peak early on in your career.

I love working for this company. The structure is great! The constant change and evolving product keeps the competition on their toes. I believe the only problem is the Growth of the company and how fast they are growing. Training and Development could be better for staff with an ever changing environment but overall my experience has been wonderful with this company!
