    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Having worked in other companies prior to Ceridian, I can only appreciate the leadership team that is consistently walking the talk, seeking for feedback and doing something with the feedback. The working environment at Ceridian, embraces employees of all ages, of all generations and drives a culture of performance and of passion of the customer and the employees. Ceridian is poised for a vibrant future that I want to be part of !

    Cons

    Coping with the fast growth is a challenging task. Requiring to keep balance with the present and the fast pacing future has its challenges.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time

    Pros

    - Great people to work with
    - The managers are very down to earth
    - 0 micro-management
    - Good commission

    Cons

    The current location need more windows, but except for that I cannot think of any other cons.

    Advice to Management

    Work does not feel like work at Cerdian but more like a passion and that's because of the helpful people around and how the company is managed. Hence, do not change how things are running at the moment because we are more than happy.

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Where do I start? I've been working here for over 5 years and I love it. I love working at the office and seeing my friends (yes, friends - not colleagues) and I also love the flexibility of working from home when life or my work load dictates it.

    I always tell new hires - love change because that's the one thing that is constant at Ceridian but it's good change! Change to be a better company, change to implement better "makes work life better" guidelines for us and our customers. Change is hard for me but these changes are ones that I fully support.

    I have an amazing manager who supports me every.single.day. No matter where she is, I always know I can contact her if need be and the lines of communication are always wide open. She's also incredibly strategic and helps me focus on what truly matters in my role. I was unexpectedly out of the office earlier this year and she, along with Lisa Sterling, were incredibly supportive.

    I've worked at other organizations that say they have the employee experience in sight when implementing new policies and procedures but having worked at other companies in the past 15 years, no one walks the talk like Ceridian.

    Cons

    There are 'cons' at all work places but at Ceridian, I don't see them as that. I see our struggles as an opportunity to be better at transparency, teamwork, etc. I joke that Ceridian is not perfect but nor do I want to work at a company with no challenges. The challenges are what bind us together as a team (one, giant team!) and keep us moving to next goal or opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    I work at a company that is constantly checking in with employees to see what's working, what's not working, etc. And then, the best part? The execs actually do something about what's not working. The day the execs stop caring about our experiences, our workload, our engagement is the day I probably will stop working here. The good news is that with the current executive team, they will never stop listening and making work life better for all of us!

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very focused on both employee engagement and customer focus. Lots of attention and thoughtful initiatives put into action in both of these areas.
    - Cutting edge product (Dayforce) that is always looking to push the boundaries and be an innovative HCM leader.
    - Always seeking feedback - multiple small surveys throughout each year as well as one large one. Plenty of opportunities to give feedback, and the company genuinely tries to take the feedback and make changes that people would like to see.
    - Flexible work environment. You can work in the office, at home... whatever works best for you (although many like to come into the offices because of the strong bond with colleagues).
    - Personally, I love working at Ceridian and I highly recommend it to anyone.

    Cons

    - This isn't a "con" at all for me, but high growth isn't for everyone. It is an important part of Ceridian! I love it, but for those who prefer a more 9-5 type of job then it may not be the best fit. It's fast-paced and you need to embrace change.
    - There are likely comments on this site around work/life balance. That being said, the company knows this and has taken a lot of measures to address.

    Advice to Management

    It's great that a lot of attention is placed on collecting employee feedback and it's even better that you keep trying to take actions as a result. The continuous efforts to make this a great place to work is certainly noticed and appreciated. It's a special culture here.
