    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is focused on getting their work done. I have worked at IBM and Apple, this company could teach both companies about customer service and employee retention

    Cons

    I wish they found me sooner

    Advice to Management

    The coach does not score the goals. The managers know the employees were hired because they know their job. The managers remove barriers to the employee meeting their goals

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

    Pros

    I started as a full-time employee but soon realized that I was not going to be able to meet the demands of my job. My manager was very receptive to finding us a mutual solution and offered me part-time with lots of flexibility! I'm also still eligible for a portion of my quarterly bonus.

    Cons

    When I switched from full-time to part-time status, I had to take a 25% cut in my pay rate even though I am still performing the same job. I also lots all of my benefits even though I'm working between 20-25 hours per week. It would be nice to have the option of half of my benefits since I'm still contributing to the team.
