Company Culture

The company at least from most of the C-level really does seem to want to promote a great culture

Support from management

Some of the C-level are great, some are awful, many of the middle managers have been hired because of their experience in other companies, and are not always the best.

Teamwork

some teams work better then others

Freedom to work independently

some teams are great, if you are in them, others they micromanage to extremes

Internal Communication

they communicate with the staff have quarterly state of the company addresses for all staff, and a monthly newsletter.

Gender Equality

all are treated fairly from what is made apparent

Attitude towards older colleagues

age does not seem to matter as long as you are a good fit

Career Development

really fails in many departments, they try and push this "pick your path" idea which is a bad way, since the goalposts can easily be moved on a whim. There are no career paths between different departments, or even between teams in the same department.

Overall compensation for your work

it is ok, the department has a weird review cycle which does tend to limit raises based on how the manager feels at the quarter

Office / Work Environment

"upgraded" to open plan, looks cool, doesn't really work too well in practice

Environmental Friendliness

open plan, can get noisy but people do enjoy it most of the time

Work-Life Balance

depending on the department this can range from fantastic, to none existent

Company Image

They try hard to make it look like the best company in the country

Job Security

some departments are better then others, the company is growing though and has done for it's entire life, even during the recession

Handicapped Accessibility

they installed special doors even after recent construction was completed to cater for a specific employee

Workplace Safety

it is a clean open office

Challenging Work

Some departments are frequently challenged to come up with fresh new ideas. other departments just have to grind away at the same tedious tasks every day, if you are in the "preferred" departments (read: development) you will probably enjoy yourself.

Inclusive / Diverse

everyone is accepted, they are pretty good at this

Suggestions for improvement

  • Some of the VP's are just plain bad, they micromanage, interfere then blame others if their plan does not work out, many of the middle management also seem to embrace the most recent corporate buzz words and management styles, because it seems cool to them, without actually using their own eyes and ears and listening to the employees. They could probably get rid of a bunch of middle management save the money and function better.

What I like about the company

Benefits are ok, some teams have a great time and their leadership really try, the CEO is always approachable and you do feel like he has the best interests of the company and his staff in mind.

What I dislike about the company

Bad career planning, the bad VP's and middle management, that make their staff miserable, the lack of experience some of the management team have, the obvious favoritism (by the bad managers)

Suggestions for improvement

  • See previous - career development. As someone who is in leadership I want to help my team grow and improve.

What I like about the company

Even though we have become such a large company I still feel like I am working at a family focused office. Remote or not you are included in EVERYTHING and you are appreciated. I love this company. The services provided to clients are solid and I know this because we "drink our own wine". I first hand get to experience our amazing developing products. I have a voice and get to explore possibility for improvements where as other companies have set rules and outlines with no wiggle room. I truly believe in Paylocity and everyone who works here.

What I dislike about the company

Career development could use some help however they already have recognized this and in the last State of the Union identified this up front. They are working on improving this and so I cant say I disapprove. They are 100% on top of these things.

Company Culture

Sold as a “millennial culture” though this is mostly a visual aspect.

Support from management

Tier 2 management and above very much disconnected from work. Does not develop talent but rather system metrics managing and unclear career pathing.

Teamwork

Best attribute is the “teamwork”. Teams are very supportive of each other. Culture encourages team interaction and fun

Freedom to work independently

There are 100% and partially remote positions. Excellent product created and managed by excellent skilled staff. Company encourages contributions and much of this is often done by self directed “tinkering”. They favor the “independent thinkers” who offer solutions and dont expect recognition or compensation.

Internal Communication

Moving away from silohs but not fast enough

Gender Equality

Need for “diversity” beyond level 1 management

Attitude towards older colleagues

Better than average in treatment of aging team members.

Career Development

Unclear career pathing and talent management/ development

Overall compensation for your work

Pay average, fringe benefits worthwhile, EXCELLENT HEALTHCARE OPTIONS

Office / Work Environment

New facility. Covered parking. Remote oppotunities

Work-Life Balance

Product popularity and sales Growth underestimated. Lots of hours, less sleep.

Job Security

Realistic to commesurate with productivity and dependability.

Handicapped Accessibility

State of the Art. Veridesk, Elevator access. Ramps. Open to reasonable “medical accommodations” with proper documenation

Workplace Safety

Addictive personalities need not participate in company celebrations

Challenging Work

Solutions start here and the business provides opportunith

Inclusive / Diverse

issues w/ instituitionalized racism and sexism. ZERO non white non male Executive Contributors. Several issues in litigation.

Suggestions for improvement

  • cultural competency and self curriculum

What I like about the company

Stellar products. Company had excellent internal trainers. EXCELLENT HEALTHCARE OPTIONS

What I dislike about the company

Disconnected upper level management, poor and unclear career pathing and , institutionalized sexism and racism,
