    Virtually impossible to get fired.

    Cons

    /no bonuses.
    No christmas party.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT keeps ADP alive and IT is the people with the skills to make that happen. Lose the people and it will cripple the business.

    I worked at ADP for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great sales training (onboarding and ongoing), strong support available and large, stable company.

    Cons

    Current leadership in Australia is out of touch with market and employees. Lots of staff churn and IP is spilling out the door! Product is outdated with no real plan to update in the near future. Very difficult to sell on value when the product is far from where it needs to be in the market. No real opportunity to move up, as most managerial jobs are hired externally and/or employees from the US are moved out for a 3 year term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage with your employees (especially the head of Australia). Talk to them (not just "at" them), make them feel they are part of the organisation not just doing a job. Product needs serious upgrade/improvement.

    Nothing more about cons. Big teams will not ensure overall growth of an employee as career. I hope smaller teams with help career growth rapidly.
