    It's all about what you make it!

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsVERY strong compensation plan. Amazing opportunity to make good money. Also a great teaching environment. Management is dedicated to teaching you not only about sales, but about business as a whole. Great opportunities for leadership within team environments, as well as for advancement into management for producers.

    ConsCan be a very high stress environment at times. Learn to manage your mind and your activity early and you will overcome this, but not without some trials.

    Fantastic Professional Experience

    Sales Executive (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ (US)

    ConsVery performance based company, you have to sell or they will put the pressure on you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue what you are doing, Paycom has a great thing going

    A top-notch company with good people and great benefits!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPaycom is a great place to work! Fortunately for me, this is my first job out of college, which makes me a little spoiled. Paycom provides its employees with all the tools to be great successes! $1 health coverage, subsidized lunches, on campus gym and company events are just a few perks you get at Paycom. It's a fun environment with lots of opportunity for growth. I am loving my job and the people I work with!

    ConsI don't really have anything bad to say about Paycom. Vacation in your first year is minimal, but when you love where you work it's not too bad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring great people and continuing to be great leaders to your employees

    No Work/Life Balance

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) DFW, TX (US)

    ProsGreat opportunity for amazing compensation

    ConsVery political, poor management (condescending), they play favorites like nobody's business, poor company/sales ethics, no work/life balance, inadequate training on set-up processes for clients, job isn't just sales - includes ALL prospecting, selling and setting up new clients

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to work on motivating their employees through other ways than scare tactics and making them feel as if they are less of a person if they mess up a call, or lose a sale. Invest in helping the sales reps - give sales the time to sell and give them the tools/help to prospect other than completely on their own (buy leads lists that aren't 10 years old, hire a small team to help prospect across the company).

    The Gateway to Opportunity!

    Transition Specialist Trainer (Current Employee) Oklahoma City, OK (US)

    ProsPaycom offers incredible opportunities for young professionals. The culture here is unbeatable. Senior Management makes an effort to invest in new employees and build them up to be corporate professionals. Paycom offers many resources to improve your job knowledge in order to further your career.

    ConsThere is not a lot to not like about Paycom, but the vacation policy in your first year is slim. I got married in my first year working at Paycom and had to wipe out all my vacation for my wedding.
