    I have been working at ADP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Looks impressive on a resume

    Cons

    - they'll sell you "its all about the client" when sales numbers and sales roll call is all that matters
    - hard to work with clients the way they want you to if you have integrity
    - most of the division is overworked and underpaid
    - benefits get more expensive while shrinking
    - Sales, and only Sales, gets incentives and bonuses
    - any suggestions are met with "you should just be happy you have a job"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A complete and total culture change is needed.

    Pros

    Great company/location to be complacent in. Perfect for those who are happy without responsibility, and love to hide behind others, and be compartmentalized. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Even the most ambitious and well-funded effort to re-structure development groups and move to agile methodologies and tools has failed to change the silo culture of this firm. Organizational structures make no sense (product owners report up differently from development team members - one hand doesn't know what the other does), effective communication between groups / applications still does not happen. Product owners have no accountability for the product. In fact, nobody seems to have any accountability.
    You have to be very good at maneuvering organizational obstacle courses and avoiding land mines if you want to be successful, because the quality of the software has no meaning in the decision process.
    No career opportunities in Portland - if you want to be a part of the happening software crowd, you will be forced to move to Chicago. Unfortunately they get nothing done there because every day a newer and shinier technology comes along, which must be tried in favor of abandoning everything that was done yesterday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop supporting the chase of new and shiny technologies and focus on business needs and opportunities. The religious obsession with co-location is irrational. Value existing IP; don't fire people with >20 year company experience because they work from home. Stop wasting money on re-inventing wheels for political reasons. Foster communication, foster collaboration. Successful employees are happy employees.
