      Pros

      When it comes to Paychex, they really hit the mark in creating an environment where you can have it all! If you work hard, you can make great money & have the opportunity to move up or over into different career paths while still having work/life balance. Paychex is a huge company, yet still has that family feel. The culture is so supportive & team driven and the company goes out of it's way to make sure their employees are supported from a wellness standpoint which I admire. The stability & benefits are amazing as well!

      Cons

      No cons - Paychex gives a lot of autonomy to their employees and expects us to work hard every day but they provide all of the tools and a great environment for us to do that!

      Pros

      Great work/life balance and benefits. Great culture.

      Cons

      Payroll and HR can get very stressful at all levels of the company when regulations roll down from the government with no time to react.

      Highly contested space with more ankle biter companies popping up everyday. Pricing pressure being created vs value. Work life balance is really tough.

      Stable and Laid back

      Pros

      Very stable especially during economic downturn. Most corporate roles are laid back and support a good work life balance

      Cons

      Growth really depends on the department. Some teams look for reasons to promote and others look for reasons to hold back.

      Pros

      Ethical, management, support and benefits are amazing, work life balance, tools and resources, training for everything and anything, amazing solutions that small businesses need and want

      Cons

      If you want to work hard and make a great living, you're a great fix. If you're are lazy and expect business to come to you, not the position for you.

      Since COVID everything has gone down hill

      27 Oct 2020 - SMB Sales

      Pros

      Flexibility, training and have access to a lot of continues education. You use to easily be able to make 120K a year if you just did what you were told, but that has all changed.

      Cons

      Because COVID they did a massive company reorganization and for the first time have not cared at all about the impact of their sales team. They are making irrational decisions and are diluting the brand The new norm is competing internally with up to 5 other reps in your territory. They also cut off all 401k match and expenses. To have the most success you must have very little work life balance. Paychex Culture has always been primarily about money and fun, not so much family or work life balance.
