    They have got everything figured out from how leadership is to compensation- largest challenge is ever changing technology and we are always enhancing to fit our client needs. Its up to you to keep up with the change- but I don't see this as a bad thing. Always developing is a good thing!

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in my role is super important for my schedule. My husband is in business for himself (2 separate business at that) and frequently needs my help. It's nice to have flexibility to assist him when needed. Paylocity has given me the freedom to complete my work on my schedule (within reason for business needs) while being able to help my husband and support our household. Work/Life Balance is the best you will find out there! I can't tell you how many times my lead and manager check in to make sure I'm not putting in more than 40 hours per week. They are adamant about having a great work/life balance. The integrity and transparency of senior leadership is overwhelming! I feel beyond blessed to have such wonderful leaders in place to make sure this company succeeds to it's fullest potential! The culture here is absolutely fantastic! I love the partnership that I experience with my team even though we are all remote. And the assistance from other departments is so refreshing! It's great to feel that the whole company is a team working together for the benefit of our clients. Leadership encourages you to grow and does everything possible to make sure you obtain your goals, regardless of that's inside your current department or in another department. The awesome benefits are truly appreciated! Vacation time is highly encouraged! We all need that break!

    Cons

    Year end volume does get extremely high, but management makes sure that we are never overloaded and that our work/life balance is not impacted. This statement is in regards to my specific role. Other departments that I frequently work with have a huge turnover rate which can make things challenging as you need to build a new rapport more than anticipated, for both myself and the client. I think that's just the nature of those other roles though.

    Pros

    At Paylocity they truly value you as an employee. Great work life balance. Great benefits. Great financial compensation with several opportunities to bonus. Adequate resources provided - they truly invest in you with both knowledge and hardware. Room to grow - ample opportunities to promote if you work hard and earn the chance! Paylocity treats employees fairly and truly values their opinions.

    Cons

    Pressure to hit goals can be strong. Sometimes culture can influence work a bit too much. Can be a real grind at times but what sales role isn't?

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

    Pros

    This company changed my life. I have great work-life balance and make more money than I ever thought possible. We have the best product on the market with the best team behind it, bar none. We have great resources and community, and, like I said, you can make a ton of money while working from home. Comp plan has only changed once in the past few years, and it actually increased our commission! Leadership listens and adjusts based on feedback. We are always improving (product, support, sales process, everything). We are far from perfect, but we are the best HCM company in the business (I’ve worked for 2 others so I’ve got some perspective). Final note we have lots of growth opportunities. If you want to be in leadership or cross train into other areas, the company is open and flexible to it.

    Cons

    High growth means territories get smaller every year. Lots of crossovers with other sales reps. As long as everyone stays ethical, this isn’t an issue just something to be aware of, and there is still plenty of opportunity to go around. Implementation strains every January. Prepare to manage some of your deals through implementation to ensure they are happy and start on time. In fairness, who knew we’d sell so much during the pandemic?
