    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time

    Pros

    Amazing company. It's the only payroll / HCM organization that truly cares about the customer - and while it's not easy - the organization has maintained an amazing culture all in an effort to provide the best support to the customer. I love that.

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing- make the main thing the main thing!

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

    Pros

    Amazing Culture. I worked at Ultimate for many years and left earlier this year. At the time, I didn't appreciate the things beyond the obvious perks (fully paid for health insurance, great 401k match, etc etc..i'm sure you've read all about it below)....which was an environment where people genuinely care about you, leadership supports at a moment's notice, training resources, great office environment, etc. I acquainted myself with people who were negative, and got caught up myself in the negative energies. After leaving Ultimate, I wish I knew then what I realize now about what I left behind. Unfortunately, i quit to join a competitor and can't be rehired.

    Cons

    Can you think about changing the policy about employees who leave for competitors? I think people are allowed to make mistakes.

    Work at times got stressful (but honestly, which job does not?). I will say I never felt I was unsupported by my manager or fellow employees whenever I asked for help.

    Advice to Management

    Please reconsider rehiring policy for former employees who leave for competitors.

    Otherwise, continue doing what you are doing...I appreciate now what my former boss, and above brought to the office, making the office actually place I want to be.

    Pros

    Engaged leadership, wonderful benefits programs, the people I work with are all on the same mission in the success of Ultimate and always willing to help.

    Cons

    Ultimate likes to do the same things the same way over and over. The upside is that it works!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for building our family over all these years. I really appreciate your engagement, keeping it real and making my family part of this family.

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

    Pros

    - Best place I've ever worked (first "real" tech company)
    - Great place if you're a sports fan (especially of Miami teams)
    - 401k, tuition, and heath care perks to full-time employees
    - Less emphasis on "clocking in/out", more emphasis on getting stuff done
    - Plenty of clubs and teams for any extracurricular hobbies/interests you might have
    - Free food every now and again (lunch catering, ice cream truck days, cake days)
    - Remote flexibility (varies on a team-by-team basis)
    - On-site cafeteria, game room, car wash, masseur, yoga room
    - Annual company trip
    - No layoffs (ever in the history of the company)

    Cons

    - Annual company trip cancelled in 2018 (first time this has happened)
    - Increasing bureaucracy with growth (we hired a lot of people in the past years)
    - Growing pains (I think they're still adjusting to being a larger organization)
    - Managers serve little purpose here (a lot of managers here are bad at their job)
    - Favoritism by department (flashy teams the execs talk about get more funding)

    Advice to Management

    While our culture is great and it sets us apart, there's some lessons that can be learned from other companies that have experienced our growing pains. Sometimes our culture can get in the way. There are some people that need to be fired but survive here for way too long. We should have less tolerance for nonsense, especially in management as bad managers demotivate entire teams.

    Company has great benefits, Flexible work schedules and great People. They make sure you have all the tools you need to be successful.

    Nothing notable. Everybody has a bad day from time to time, but that is not the company's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes hiring a leader from the outside ca be beneficial to keep the ideas fresh.

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits, Amazing Culture! They really do take care of their employees and having unlimited PTO is an incredible benefit. Being able to work remote is also an awesome perk!

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons.

    Advice to Management

    With our rapid growth we need to ensure that everyone is on the same page. We also need to accommodate for growth and maybe go away from the open floor plan for development and support often to much non se makes it hard to concentrate.
