    Pros

    Cutting edge products, inspired leaders, employee-centric, leaders that walk the walk. It's the multigenerational and highly diverse people that translate our leader's vision into a unique product that is transforming every single client. This is now an essential global company that will touch everyone!

    Cons

    Transformation can be a challenge if you're not a change-agent, you must be agile and embrace a trust-culture. If you're looking to take a passive role this place is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on why we're here. Do the hard work still needed to remove layers, flatten and right-size. Continue to be an inspiration for employees to make an impact every day.

    Pros

    Great benefits, salary
    Support when needed (professionally for workplace items, or support for personal items through Lifeworks EAP program)
    Fun environment
    Great people (really the people are by far the best I've worked with) - we have fun while we work!

    Cons

    If you're not ready for an ever-changing environment, Ceridian may not be the right place for you.


  3. "Great except for marketing dept"

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, executive leadership team are really strong, the product is well built and easy to sell, the company seems to value your contributions, focuses on the importance of work-life balance

    Cons

    Marketing management has a lot of turnover; the team has some great people but hasn't been led well in the past; politics and 'schmoozing' ability seems more important than product knowledge and writing ability

    Advice to Management

    Put product marketing under product management so the people setting the direction of the product also set the direction of its messaging

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

    Pros

    - Dynamic company with a strong, focused strategy for the future. We represent a product that is cutting edge, and that we can be proud of.
    - Strong financial and customer growth means a fast-paced and ever-changing environment. To me, the challenge and strains of growth are an amazing problem to have.
    - Actively listen to employees through ongoing surveys and focus groups
    - No company is perfect at living Values, but Ceridian does it as well or better than most.
    - Awesome colleagues who always support one another and have each other's backs. In addition, lots of opportunities to participate in fun events locally (Fun@Work) and Ceridian Cares

    Cons

    - All areas are growing and moving fast, so it's not always the easiest for all areas to know what your area is always up to. Not a con as much as a natural side effect of growth.
    - It's fast-paced (which I really like) but if you're someone that prefers stable, predictable work then this likely isn't the place for you. People who love to dive in and solve things for customers and peers do very well here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I know that my area has actively been trying to make changes that improve efficiency and also help us navigate the growth. It will take time, but things are pointing in a very positive direction on things we have provided feedback on.

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time

    Pros

    Some companies focus on culture but lose sight of innovating, others focus on innovating but lose sight of creating the right culture.

    At Ceridian, we've found the perfect middle ground between making this the place we all want it to be and also continuing to drive, innovate and win in the market.

    It’s nice to work somewhere where you truly look forward to Monday mornings

    Cons

    Not a con, but important FIT question - look at Ceridian's values and ask if those are what matter most to you.

    Pros

    Great people, great culture and a company that has reinvented itself and has truly become the market leader in the SaaS human capital management area. The company is full of energy and upbeat people who genuinely care about their work and the customers. The Dayforce product is receiving huge praise and awards from technology analysts (as well as customers using it) and it's so exciting to be part of a company growing so quickly behind a world class product. I can honestly say that this has not always been the case - in my 15+ years here there have been better times than others, but over at least the past 5 years the culture and engagement has completely changed and it truly is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Fast paced so sometimes requires quick turn around a and working under pressure - but for people who thrive on that kind of environment (like I do) it's really not a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work - the company is definitely headed in the right direction - both in terms of growth and culture.
