Good place to work, if you like a corporate environment
Health & Benefits Broker (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – November 8, 2016
I enjoyed working for Paychex, I just didn't like my position. I worked for the health and benefits team for companies less than 50 employees. Before working for Paychex, I did not know that health benefits were not mandatory for companies under 50 people. It was very hard to convince a small company of 20 people to meet with you to add the cost of health care coverage for their employees when it wasn't mandatory for them to have that available. Paychex is also a heavy suit and tie environment. I remember getting "reminded" by my manager at least twice that to go from my desk to the copier I needed to have my suit coat on. At your desk, a coat is optional, but DO NOT even think about loosening that tie! Sorry guys, it's a little too rigid for me.
Crazy strict about dress code, very hard core numbers driven

They make you work hard for little pay. If you get a raise its very small. Would never recommend this job to no one. I had four different supervisors in the 2 years Ive been there because the turn over.
Data Entry Specialist II (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – June 20, 2018
People are friendly, if you're a good, reliable worker, they try to keep you in the company whether it's a new department or higher position. One thing they can improve is some of the Trainers in their departments could use a little bit more training themselves before actually trying to train new people.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – June 12, 2018
Paychex is a great place to work if you like dealing with numbers & clients. Management is okay, can be helpful at times. Hard part about working here is being able to assist clients correctly and efficiently on a daily basis.
This company is based strictly on favoritism and who is friends with supervisors. The protocols and procedures are not followed through carefully for the job safety of the employee. Very poor management skills from supervisor. If a supervisor sees you perform in better than them they fire you. Instead of lifting you and congratulating you they become enemies and team up with others to push you out. Do not apply
VARIOUS POSITIONS (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – June 4, 2018
It's been a while since I worked at this company, but I can honestly say that for the first 12 years I worked here, I honestly loved most things about the job, the environment, and the people that I worked for. I loved going to work. I never minded working late or on the weekends when needed. The coworkers were like my second family. Things changed around the time I left the company. Management changed and came in with different philosophies. With that, the immediate supervisors were forced to change their ways with the employees under them, and the environment begin to change. It was not all bad, but you saw things you never saw before done when it came to supervisor/employee interaction. The atmosphere definitely showed a difference from before. The training this company does is outstanding. It is always in the top 100 in the country and it shows.
Great staff, Incredible training
At the time, management change and the trickle-down atmosphere changes
Great place to work with good culture and good people
Enterprise Client Service Representative (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 21, 2018
Paychex is a good place to work. The culture is positive. They have excellent training. Management is supportive. The hardest part of the job as with many companies is obtaining resources from other departments to accomplish goals.
