    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    Ceridian has an exciting, fast paced work environment that provides a new challenge every day. Many fantastic opportunities for growth and professional development. Colleagues who are friendly and willing to help, and like to fun while doing it.

    Cons

    Services is always a challenge. Rapid growth has meant a lot of work. We're still learning how to ensure we balance work and personal life, but the company is committed to it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on culture - it will lead us to the right place.

    Pros

    Great Executive team, great place to be a visionary, if you like constant positive tech change this is the company to be at. Overall it is a fascinating organization where you have the opportunity to build something but be careful as it could back fire if you someone thinks you're encroaching on their limelight

    Cons

    Management tends to lie and cover up issues. Falsifications of sales numbers are reported to enhance their own agendas and career paths. "Boys Club" mentality in certain regions holds back gender equality. Lack of team orientation from sales leaders and a very self centered focus for personal gain. Selling a product that can not be implemented in time gives clients false hope. Work load is uneven and compensation skewed within sales divisions and teams - effort is not rewarded, more so, person with the loudest voice and complaints wins.

    Advice to Management

    Replace sales leaders with people who develop teams and not keep them down. Focus on those who are doing the right things and grow them.... instead of protecting the complainers, whiners, and low performers.

    Pros

    Tremendous positive change over the past few years showing in the results - high employee engagement, referenceable customers, great market momentum. Ceridian has emerged as a fast-growing organization with an award-winning integrated HCM solution in Dayforce.

    Cons

    Pace of change is challenging at times, but all part of the exciting journey.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share the successes across all functions.
    Focus more on college hiring to the supplement the great positive energy we already enjoy.

    Pros

    Free tickets to events on occasion and free tea and coffee n a fitness subsidy.

    Cons

    Favoritism mgrs are promoted without any education and new employees are paid more then existing employees. Some depts get to work virtual and some don't there's no consistency at all. Not alot of room for advancement with alot of jobs being cut. Mgmt doesn't like to deal with problem employees. Low pay in most jobs after being there over 15 yrs I walked into a job that paid more then they did.
