    Pros

    Culture, people, benefits, work/life balance, resources and technology is on point.

    Cons

    Please remember Canadian employment law is different than the US. Bit of a disconnect there at times.

    Advice to Management

    Amazing company and values but need to focus on Canada a bit more and ensure compensation and employee recognition is fair with Canadian employees as well.

    Pros

    Scott Scherr & Viv Maza is what makes us truly unique - These people are so genuine and truly care about everyone that is part of our Ultimate Family. They have created an environment that people want to be a part of, want to make a difference because we can. We all share the same passion, we all understand our "WHY" behind what we do and how we do it and when you have a group of 5000 strong all striving for the same targets, that's a very powerful thing! We have the best solutions on the market and we play the infinite game, we aren't concerned what our competition is doing because our biggest competitor is our-self. We push ourselves to be better tomorrow than we were yesterday. Truly a great place to work. I cannot thank Scott and Viv enough for giving me the opportunity to be part of something so special. Ultimate Software has 1000% changed my families life and we're so thankful!

    Cons

    Wish I would have come to Ultimate Software sooner, seriously, no con's to working here, amazing place, amazing people.

    Advice to Management

    Never change, love you all!

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

    Pros

    We have an incredible management and leadership team with a plethora of opportunities to develop our skill set while believing in what we do and the solution we deliver! It does not get better than that! The extensive resources that are provided to get the job well done are not comparable to any other organization out there.

    Cons

    Zero cons that I have experienced!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - every box is checked in my book and somehow management always has a way of going above and beyond even when you do not think it is possible. I would strongly recommend this organization!

    Pros

    I cannot rave enough about this company. IT really is a people first mentality. The job is challenging (but in a good way) and the peers and upper management are very supportive. Not to mention great benefits.

    I wish I had come to work here much sooner

    Advice to Management

    Push development to put in as much effort into developing tools for Canada as they do for the US.
