    I have been working at Paycom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    VERY strong compensation plan. Amazing opportunity to make good money. Also a great teaching environment. Management is dedicated to teaching you not only about sales, but about business as a whole. Great opportunities for leadership within team environments, as well as for advancement into management for producers.

    Cons

    Can be a very high stress environment at times. Learn to manage your mind and your activity early and you will overcome this, but not without some trials.

    I have been working at Paycom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, close relationships with office regional and corporate managers, world class training. Sales isn't too difficult when you have as great of a product as Paycom, tons of opportunities to advance if you perform

    Cons

    Very performance based company, you have to sell or they will put the pressure on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what you are doing, Paycom has a great thing going

    I have been working at Paycom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Paycom offers incredible opportunities for young professionals. The culture here is unbeatable. Senior Management makes an effort to invest in new employees and build them up to be corporate professionals. Paycom offers many resources to improve your job knowledge in order to further your career.

    Cons

    There is not a lot to not like about Paycom, but the vacation policy in your first year is slim. I got married in my first year working at Paycom and had to wipe out all my vacation for my wedding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to add wonderful people to this company!

    I have been working at Paycom

    Pros

    Paycom is a great place to work! Fortunately for me, this is my first job out of college, which makes me a little spoiled. Paycom provides its employees with all the tools to be great successes! $1 health coverage, subsidized lunches, on campus gym and company events are just a few perks you get at Paycom. It's a fun environment with lots of opportunity for growth. I am loving my job and the people I work with!

    Cons

    I don't really have anything bad to say about Paycom. Vacation in your first year is minimal, but when you love where you work it's not too bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring great people and continuing to be great leaders to your employees

    Pros

    Paycom genuinely cares about their employees. Health benefits are amazing, the training is comprehensive and thorough, and the opportunities are endless. Compensation is good and there is always room for growth in your career. This company is only going to continue to grow and get better.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any.

    I have been working at Paycom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity for amazing compensation

    Cons

    Very political, poor management (condescending), they play favorites like nobody's business, poor company/sales ethics, no work/life balance, inadequate training on set-up processes for clients, job isn't just sales - includes ALL prospecting, selling and setting up new clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to work on motivating their employees through other ways than scare tactics and making them feel as if they are less of a person if they mess up a call, or lose a sale. Invest in helping the sales reps - give sales the time to sell and give them the tools/help to prospect other than completely on their own (buy leads lists that aren't 10 years old, hire a small team to help prospect across the company).

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

    Pros

    Paycom sincerely cares about the people that make up their organization! Everything they do is backed by integrity and is designed to develop business acumen, grow individuals personally and professionally, and provide financial security that is uncapped!

    Cons

    The structure at Paycom is very clearly defined and management of processes and schedules is very tight. You must be willing to conform to a more rigid set of rules and standards in comparison to that of most other outside sales positions.

    Pros

    Great compensation! Company cares about their sales team and will take care of them (financially!)

    Cons

    Daily grind. If you are looking to make a million cold calls, knock down doors, and sometimes beg for business to hit your numbers, this is the job for you!
