"I’ve been with Paychex for over 4 years and while they are a great company to work for, I have done all I can do in my position. They are not hiring new managers or allowing people to move up because they are comfortable with the people they have so I am looking for something else where I can move up in a new company and show them what I can do."

"I have worked for Paychex since the beginning of 2020. They were amazing in getting me brought on board and training me to be successful. The only reason I left was because the role I was in shifted very drastically because of COVID to the point where I did not want to be in it anymore. Otherwise I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a job."

Paychex Employee

"I’ve been employed with Paychex for a little less than 2 years. I find that they do not treat their sales teams like they should, considering they are the lifeblood of the company. There is not much room for advancement without moving to a specific area. They have released so many salespeople & they are continuing to manage the new & existing clients in many regions with a skeleton team & have relied more heavily on the inside sales resources, which are based in Rochester, NY - where they are headquartered. In my experience, small businesses need to have a local contact for the sale & implementation of these integral services. Some of the leaders are great, but the company morale is overall very low because of decisions being made atop the organization chart. They have stopped matching 401K contributions, lessened pay, complicated compensation & done many other things that make their sales associates feel less & less important."
