Celebrated work-life balance, and people who truly work like one team.
I like that people can now work from home, that we have invested in a more modern campus for those that want to come in. I especially like that there is stability and great benefits—all great points for the company.
There are great opportunities for growth. The work is interesting and challenging. There is an appreciated amount of respect for employees.
Paychex stresses work life balance and actually puts its money where its mouth is. Its easy for big companies to say they care about this sort of thing, but every team I’ve
Culture and the people I work with is what makes Paychex unique. Trainings and benefits along with career opportunities is a huge plus.
When I had to go out on a medical leave Paychex subsidized the short term disability so that My family continued to be financially supported through my recovery.

We’re also not perfect, and we will never stop trying to be better.
We’re led by real-people, do’ers themselves, with many starting at entry levels.
We have grown into experts across the information technology landscape and take great pride in our work, but even more importantly, celebrate the accomplishments of people first. We won’t exaggerate what we offer. We won’t promise what we can’t deliver and we will go to extraordinary lengths to help people grow, succeed and love working here.

I have had a number of jobs over the years, and can say that I feel Paychex is really a special place to work. The benefits are great, the pay is competitive, there are great opportunities to work with new and exciting technology, and the people are fantastic.
I think the benefits package is the best I’ve had at any company!
I don’t feel stuck in any one role. Paychex gives employees flexibility and training to move around the company, have new experiences. I attribute that to Paychex’s positive culture towards employees.
We uphold respect and integrity above all other ways people can work together. We were founded with our CEO’s memory of watching their father be berated by their boss. That won’t stand here. Never has, never will.
The management team here is second to none. I have a very favorable opinion of all the managers I have had in my group. That is way different from my prior companies and a big reason why I enjoy working here.
The culture here is outstanding. When hiring new people they are always so amazed at how helpful and friendly the people are. I have yet to have a new employee say this to me!
Come on in.

That isn’t just the right thing to do by us, it’s also the smart thing to do.
