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

    Pros

    I have been an employee of Paychex for almost 4 years now and it has been an amazing journey. They try hard to show your value as an employee and are very interested in your career growth and your personal development. The culture and people are awesome and make you enjoy coming to work each day.

    Cons

    There are times your day to day can get stressful, so you have to be able to handle that well. Paychex does offer many options though for your wellness and how to handle stress.
