- ADP14.May 2018
The company itself treats it's employees quite well. Good pay, good benefits.
Support from management
In the past 12 years, I have been allowed to take about 5 training classes to improve my technical skills, but only 1 in the past 5 years.
Depends on the team. My first job at ADP was on a successful team that worked well together. After being moved (without consultation) to my current boss's team 5 years ago, I've been a team of 1, working entirely alone.
I have had under a dozen one on one meetings with my boss in the past 4 years, even though he scheduled a regular weekly conf call. He never shows up, so he never knows what I work on.
Hardly any female developers, fewer female team leads or managers, even fewer female sr management.
Attitude towards older colleagues
They just offered early retirement to folks over 55 with over 10 years service, and I believe they are doing this to get rid of highly paid employees, so they can bring in more H1B visas and overseas workers for less money.
The vast majority of technical skills I've learned here have been self taught.
Overall compensation for your work
If your boss appreciates your work, you'll get a good review and a nice raise every year. If your boss doesn't appreciate you, you'll get a crumby review and 1-2% cost of living raise.
Office / Work Environment
Directors and above get offices with a door, everyone else sits in a tiny cube (they are currently rebuilding them to cram more people in our building)
They have paper shredding bins for confidential info, but no plastic or paper recycling bins anywhere on campus.
When I was on call, I used to be online 10-12 hours a day, with emergency conf calls at all hours of the night. Since getting off the prod ops team, I've been lucky to work 8-5 99% of the time.
ADP has a good reputation, and provides important financial trending information about the economy.
Every time an employee leaves our team, we lose the headcount, and their workload is piled on top of someone else's. Right now I'm responsible for work that used to be done by two other people, as well as my regular responsibilities.
Inclusive / Diverse
Very diverse population, but it's still like 90% male. The majority of developers are overseas, Brazil and India.
What I like about the company
They pay better than other companies I've applied to.
What I dislike about the company
The lack of training resources and career development opportunities.
