    I have been working at ADP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great culture and refreshing to work in a place that encourages a good work/life balance. The people are supportive and genuinely care about each other and clients, the environment is good and I have seen many improvements over the last 12 months that has been based around employee feedback. Employee engagement really matters to ADP and all employees are encouraged to share their views and contribute to improvements.

    Cons

    Minor challenges such as location and public transport links, these are outweighed by the benefits such as culture, people and office environment.

    Pros

    Great company, great people. Management is great and really take in your thoughts and ideas and encourage you into being pro active with adjusting/changing processes. Work/life balance is great, your not expected to work over time and are not micro managed as you are expected to work autonomously

    Cons

    Can't think of any at the moment!

    Pros

    Respect for all employees comes right down from the top. CEO and execs making huge efforts to engage with employees and communicate their plans and values. Good attitude to work/life balance and awesome teamwork.

    Cons

    Giant organisation takes time to change, although on a local level change can happen quickly. Some departments have little urgency to deliver.

    I worked at ADP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Senior Managers based in Central Europe and the US who were responsible for the area I worked in had a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve and the direction the organisation should be travelling in. They were very good at communicating this vision to their teams. The GM is passionate and genuinely wants to introduce process improvements and innovations that will enhance the company performance and improve employees job satisfaction. No micro-management. The teams in the UK are made up of great people to work with who are truly passionate about their roles and doing the best they can. There is a strong sense of Corporate Social Responsibility throughout the organisation with words regularly turned in to actions in the local and wider communities. Good Salary levels, slightly above market rates. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Very difficult to make changes, and then to make them stick. UK decision making on non-sales based issues was severely hampered by a lack of clarity about who the final decision makers were. This resulted in an inability to move things forward that was then attributed to lack of progress by the lower level employees. Getting things done can rely too much on knowing how to negotiate the office politics rather than the right answer.

    I worked at ADP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    No micro management Decent junior pay and benefits Great work life balance - No expectations of overtime Balance your own workload Easy going teams

    Cons

    Summary.... Don't come to ADP and expect to make changes (there are hoops you didn't even know existed!) - Great place to coast along, wait out retirement or build up experience... Unfortunately, restrictive for those wanting more. No Training - Expected to implemented products with no product training Reluctance to Change - Mainly by long term managers/employees, who don't necessarily have the wider experience to bring about large scale change Few Processes High Turnover Poor Products No Progression Culture? Focus on South Office

    Pros

    Training, market research, pay structure and earnings potential. Work/Life balance Work with professional, pleasant people.

    Cons

    As with many larger organisations, change takes a lot of time. Some management tools seem like like lip service, too much made of associates working in naturally busy territories.

    work-life balance is good, lots of nice friendly people who care, nice environment, great training schemes.

    Cons

    Massive influx of idiots who don't care enough; too many CV builders who don't hang around to see the consequences of their dumb ideas. Pace is a little pedestrian. management never learn from mistakes. Technology a little antiquated.

    too slow to act multiple acquisition are confusing as many countries have their own tools service offering, then there are multinational ones. can lead to internal competion... and unclarity with clients.
