    I worked at Paycom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, many growth opportunities, great people, great experience

    Cons

    Overworks employees but will chalk that up to being the result of a fast paced environment. There's a reason they hire so many young people. "churn and burn" seems like the right term.

    Advice to Management

    PSD is a disaster and has been a disaster for a decade. You can be selective about the number new clients you take on a year. Look at other HRIS systems, that's what they do and they don't experience as much turnover or implementation issues.

    I worked at Paycom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paycom has a very young, progressive outlook.

    They have wonderful amenities like great food and a gym.

    The starting salaries are fabulous and the opportunity to move up and make even more money is very easy.

    Cons

    For most jobs you have blackouts starting in November - which means no family holiday time.

    In fact, forget about family time in general because Paycom works you like a dog.

    They expect you to come in early (often mandatory) and leave late.

    Your work load is nearly impossible to manage.

    And because it is so easy to be promoted, your team leaders are children who have no idea how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to restructure. They have a visionary CEO who truly cares about the workforce and who is interested in doing big, wonderful things. Unfortunately, the way they have structured their levels, and their work schedule as a whole is horrible and turnover is insane. Most of the people I worked with a year ago quit a few months after I did.

    I worked at Paycom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Financial Compensation
    - Professional Development
    - Great Product

    Cons

    1) Work life balance is completely non existent. Working 8 hours a day is frowned upon, in fact, if you get in after 7:00 AM and leave before 6:00 PM for any reason you will be judged. The vacation policy is pretty good, but don't you dare think about using the time you've earned. The majority of employees have hundreds of vacation hours banked because everyone is either terrified to use them or legitimately doesn't have the time in their schedule. All of this being said, that was easy to justify because of the professional growth and salary I was receiving.

    2) Now is where it gets interesting. Let me talk about the sales team......

    *****MOST OF THE REVIEWS HERE COME FROM THE NEW HIRE SALES TRAINING CLASS*****

    3) They are told while they're at training (avg. tenure at this point is 1-2 months) they have to write a 5-Star review on Glassdoor.

    4) Reps are told to promise all new clients that they will be at 2 major meeting (Kick-off and their first Payroll). However, sales managers then tell the reps they aren't allowed to go to any of those and leave it up to the implementation team to create a lie as to why they "couldn't make it"

    5) Sales reps receive bonuses when a payroll starts on time, yet are told not to be involved in the implementation process at all

    6) At the end of the day, Paycom only cares about the sales team. Sales managers sell almost every deal in the office, and the reps receive all of the credit. If you are not on that team, prepare to be overworked and undervalued

    Advice to Management

    You, knowingly or unknowingly, are creating a divide between sales and ops. Go back to when it was a team environment or your best talent will leave (if they haven't already) for better opportunities

    I worked at Paycom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits... and that is about it!

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime, poor management, low pay, very little PTO

    Advice to Management

    You have to get with times and realize that culture is everything. The fact that you get "written up" for being 3 minutes late is unheard of. The benefits team is overworked and falling quickly because of low pay and time off. If you have a family, forget about them. You will never see them. Upper management needs to realize they need to invest more in the employees to have a positive outcome.

    Pros

    put on team within 3 weeks training, allowed to take on responsibilities, developer teams split into manageable levels often so new hires always happen, points system means that a promotion happens when you get the points for it based off of the code that you release, fellow employees can go on a lot of vacations

    Cons

    some splits don't take into account what you are working on before, only place to work is Oklahoma City

    Pros

    There are many great things about working at Paycom!
    1. There are clear achievements that must be met for an individual to promote to the next level QA position - this keeps things fair as you are promoted based on very clear merit requirements.
    2. Amazing environment of people - this makes the biggest impact and you are happy to interact with your coworkers working here.
    3. Gym on site with classes during lunchtime and after work.
    4. Many benefits & perks - $1 healthcare, stock purchase option, $4 catered lunches with various options, monthly luncheons, quarter-end jeans week, quarterly gift, theme weeks and celebrations various times in the year, and much more.

    Cons

    The team that you are put on within the department greatly affects your work environment. That being said, your opinion does matter in your team placement and I would say that it works out positively 99% of the time.

    I have been working at Paycom full-time

    Pros

    The company puts a lot of effort into creating a positive and collaborative work culture. It is nice to see a company in the Midwest pour into their employees by providing continued education, company perks, and focusing on employee health. Our teams accomplish a lot of great work while still enjoying great company benefits like the company gym and daily lunch variety provided by our clients.

    Cons

    The company has grown at a really fast pace over the past 5 years. Policies and procedures are playing catch up. As a result there are lots of great opportunities for new employees, with the right experience, to help fill in the gaps as the company continues growing organically.

    Advice to Management

    Continue bringing in talented, intelligent and motivated new employees. Keep giving those employees the opportunity to learn about the organization and providing them with the autonomy to grow.
