I can't hardly believe how bad the overall employee moral is now at ADP. It is such a dismal and horrible environment. The executives have created a terrible working environment for people. They have laid off all the best employees with the knowledge and doubled or tripled the workload for employees and those employees are not skilled or have any real knowledge of the business processes or systems or how to be effective. The executives have driven this company into an awful environment and a place anyone who can find other employment surely will.

I'm sure that the layoffs that happened today are going to improve employee morale. Oh, wait. No they won't. Quite the contrary. But then, employee morale is not important to ADP. Only drastic labor cost reductions.
What's really fantastic is how they pay out bonuses - just like a former company of mine, they give bonuses to those who "work the most". As in, you work weekends, you get big $$. But why, why they need to work weekends? Ah, because they're id–ts who can't do their jobs effectively, and so they need to work weekends. That is ADP right there!
Well hard work does not equal productive or valuable work! For example, I personally saw a scenario where ADP hired 12 new grads and some younger millennials who did nothing except work together as a team to attempt to produce a report. One single report. They worked over 6 months on it and basically got nowhere. It should have taken them way less time. I saw what was happening and did the entire thing in less than 3 hours. 3 hours! Seriously. 12 employees for 6 months and experience, knowledge, and skill did it in less than 3 hours! Of course in the end, that just made the Senior VP look like a total id–t for hiring them so I am sure that ping a ding on me for being effective. That is just but one example of what ADP has become. Glad I walked away from that lying delusional place.
@4nvm+15AJ7WXk I don’t think it is fair to say they are ALL terrible. I have a new grad and he is a very hard worker! I don’t believe in lumping everyone or generalizing and putting everyone in the same category just because you observed a new grad in a particular situation being terrible.
The "new grads" are just plain terrible. Not to be mean, but they are just terrible employees. Lazy whiners that expect everything handed to them and do nothing in return. Just terrible. Hope ADP is enjoying the effects of these folks on the fast declining client retention!
A man after my own heart. Too few people here understand how to be a true opportunist. There is good money to be made on a decline, or by continuing the problem. Kicking the can down the road is a time honored tradition.
Previously laid off with a rotating door back in. (Where they do that at?-ADP). Not complaining At All. The door was Real, real niiiicccceeeee! Much nicer than the first door I entered. It did my pockets WELL. Then, Covid happened. Still All Good—-I had a chance to prepare well. In a great place thanks to the elevated, rotating door and wisdom-“Make The BEST out of this elevated opportunity”.
What caught Me by surprise were the unlimited higher level positions (III’s) asking basic questions on their roles. It is apparent they are clueless. It gave me life and a lot of laughs. Poor ADP. I had to get an upfront look, to understand the increase in work and the lack of real knowledge is going to be the best payback ever; plus I walked away with some good money at a $12k pay increase over a great period of time, on top of other Required pay. WHAT?!?!?! Big Grin!!!
Where they do that at?-ADP. I’ll never be mad at ‘em. Their incompetence has been a great blessing for me. Thank You, ADP. You’re A GREAT One.
Don’t believe the negative. Their mayhem may bless your life real good during these times.
The new grads being hired are not helping the environment, contrary to what the execs were hoping for. They are mostly ineffective and complain a lot. They get easily frustrated and leave. Bad plan from ADP. They could save a whole lot more money by eliminating the high paid execs and CEO than the difference in the high paid effective knowledge employees and the low paid ineffective new hires.
The problem is the CEO is taking his direct reports word for stuff that all is ok. And of course they are peddling a load of manure to him so they get viewed as making progress. And as long as that crowd is still in place, the problems will remain. Take for example: Stuart Sackman. That guy is so out of his league it isn't funny. But he sells the load of c-ap convincingly enough that the gullable CEO just keeps on buying it hook line and sinker.
What's worse, leadership doesn't care and if you dare say anything, your job becomes a nightmare. Its not worth it to stay there, and things won't change because they don't want it to. Employee experience doesn't matter, only the client experience does. That's why they ditched the engagement surveys - they didn't like what they were hearing.
