I worked at Paychex full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Paychex provides you with everything that you need to become successful in a sales orginization. cell phone, client lists, and support.

Cons

As an HR solutions representative the ramp up time may take a while since you will be learing all of the high level and details aspects of HR. Once you get familiar with the product and value proposition, your success should be imiminent. Just work hard and check your ego at the door.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pair up your new employees with your top level sales representatives if you want to shorten the ramp up time. The problem is how do you incentivise your rockstars to do so? I can garauntee that if you do a business analysis by using the strategy that it will result in great profits for the orginization.

    I have been working at Paychex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable company. Decent benefits. As of recent have good access to technology, tools, and equipment.

    Cons

    I agree with a couple of other reviews. The software development side of the house is a mess. Development techniques are dated and produce software built for the 1980's. It's managed poorly. If you work in test you sit around idle most of the time and then for one week everything is a crisis. There are too many managers and leaders who cannot get out of the past. There are a lot of good developers and even more bad ones. It takes us 5 times as many programmers to create code that's substandard and not up to the times. Expect to either spend your time twiddling your thumbs or in a crisis being sworn and yelled at by irrational leaders who would never survive in a modern software development organization. If you want to work in IT, work in an area outside of software development and testing.
    There is so much bureaucracy and process here that it slows down everything. It's impossible to do anything without it getting embroiled in committee. When we complain about process, they even create process to eradicate process. Most of our management lives in meetings and comes out of them with little or nothing to show except more ways to inhibit real work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change out your entire development leadership team and hire folks who get things done instead of spend their valuable time in conference rooms
