    Pros

    I cannot say enough about how wonderful this company is and how they treat their employees, It is like working alongside family. They truly care about their employees and put us first.
    Benefits speak for themselves . Health, Dental, Vision are completely covered by the company, great 401k plan, you become a stock holder when you are hired, They have a wellness program that offers fitness classes, mediation, massages and so much more.

    Cons

    I have been working for Ultimate for 10 plus years and can't think of anything that would ever make me leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing - Listen to your employees and continue to care about them and they will take care of the business.

    Pros

    This company cares more about its people than any company I have ever heard of. They are generous, have incredible benefits, and create a culture of owners. I sometimes have to pinch myself!

    Cons

    None at all. It is hard work, but that is my pleasure to do in response to a company that is so incredible.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change--you are amazing and we love what you have created here!

    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best health plans available without having to pay premiums for you or your family.

    Good, but not great 401K match. 45% match to your contributions without limit. Requires you to contribute significantly to get a good match. Other employers will match 100% up to a certain percentage of salary and then 50% up to another percentage.

    Great atmosphere in the office without politics - at least in the rank and file level.

    Most management is very supportive and want you to succeed. They will work with you whenever PTO is requested.

    Stock options and bonuses for performance can be significant (>20% of salary).

    Cons

    Unlimited PTO that's not really unlimited. Business needs and lack of coverage will prevent this from ever being unlimited PTO. It's a nice phrase, but I do not feel it's accurate. Most people will actually take less PTO under an unlimited plan because they don't have days to lose if no PTO is taken.

    Nepotism and favoritism is real. I understand wanting to hire friends and family because you know their character and know they will be a good fit, but because they are friends and family you might not be the most objective party and better candidates will lose out.

    There is a great emphasis in hiring people through the Raising Stars (Support) and Tech Star (Dev) Programs because this will keep salaries lower. This is not something specific to this company, but something to keep in mind. Once hired through the program your salary will be average. In addition, they will try to say most position changes are considered lateral and will not result in a salary increase.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and thank you for taking care of us!

    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Telecommuting is really easy, they encourage PTO (plus we have unlimited PTO), the health benefits are phenomenal, the 401k match is great. I've gone through a few managers but they've all had my interests at heart and have been very transparent with things that are going on, and it makes me feel respected as an employee. When they say People First, and that they prioritize their employees, they are really telling the truth. I'm also in the Product Development side of the organization.

    I've yet to run into any kind of office politics at my level. However, while I don't experience it, I have heard and witnessed a bit of politicking at the senior leadership level (which I feel like is to be expected at any company). I would say the politicking at the individual contributor level is nonexistent, though.

    Cons

    There's typically a re-org once a year (since I've been here). So far it hasn't been very disruptive for my work, but it varies depending on the department. I feel they try their best to make things move smoothly. Fortunately all of my managers believe the People First philosophy, so although I've had a few managers, I've always felt respected.

    The career paths can be a little foggy for the product folks and poorly documented and communicated, at least in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Please make the career path for product peeps/business analysts more visible! It seems like it's unique in every team.

    I have never been a part of an organization that truly believes in "People First". The opportunity that is in front of me is so rewarding. I'm grateful to be a part of this organization!

    Cons

    Hard to believe, but I don't really have any complaints!

    Pros

    Ultimate absolutely puts its People First. Great benefits and opportunities for growth both professionally and personally. Feel so lucky to get to an UltiPeep!

    Cons

    Workload - fast growing company means the workload is often quite heavy.
