Thread regarding ADP layoffs

No raise

I have been waiting for the announcement that due to COVID19, no raises. It came. So busting your a$$ all year, and no merit, or bonus.

Gotta love being overworked, under-appreciated, under constant stress of layoff, and working with new hire millennials that are completely ineffective! ADP Rocks doesn't it? Ha Ha Ha. Thanks Carlos for the wonderful life!

Here's my "Carnac the Magnificent" "Carlos the little man" mind reading for the day: "Be glad you got anything and happy you haven't been terminated yet! I deserve more because I am a CEO and I have no morals."

All people leaders got the message about the 1% raise a few weeks back. In the Comp Planner tool, it’s set to 1% for all our direct reports and it can’t be adjusted.

Bonus eligible employees will get a smaller payout compared to previous years.

To add to that, I'm very curious as to how some people have heard about it, and others have not. Makes you wonder if everyone is getting the same info, and if not, why.

I'm confused as to why people are saying they have not heard about the 1%? Our boss told us a couple weeks back, then I'm positive a company wide email went out the following week about it. I would have to go back and check. But everyone gets 1% this year.

Well, it is a 1% raise across the board. Bonuses on the ADP corporate plan will be like 62% of target. Not great, but the narrative will always be “at least you still have a job”.

no more talk about a no raise eh? typical trolling on this page from former employees who hate ADP and want to get people to quit. it's BS. no one has been told anything about increases and won't be until late August.

Who has been informed of 1%? BU and department? I've heard nothing at all. again, sounds like this is more trolling.

Well, good for them.

1% is not a large amount and likely comes from pay those that were RIF'd would have earned. I guess like most people, if I were still there, I'd take the money and not think much about it. However, most people with any compassion would gladly give up that 1% to keep the others employed.

I have to give ADP credit. That is a great misdirect as people will remember the 1% and forget why, or from where. Sad.

Every employee will be getting a raise, 1% across the board.

Nobody retires on their own from ADP. I was there 22 years and glad I left on my own terms. Wish I would have done it sooner.

People that work for ADP are tough to be able to put up with that company's shenanigans. Now doing the work of the laid off people and stoically facing the abuse. Having put up with that, they deserve to complain and "whine" all they want. We're here to listen and witness.

No one cares you won't get a raise. ADP doesn't work that way. They have a completely different agenda than worrying about employees. Make your choice to stay or go. Or maybe they push you out. If you stay until then, or forever if it happens, make your choice and quit whining about no raise. Life is tough. Too bad.

@asgq+15CbyTaG - any raise will not equal as compensation for the work you'll be performing on behalf of the laid off EE's. Then again, maybe it's my calculator, not yours, that's at fault.

Amazing that a conclusion can be made that "no one is being told they aren't getting a raise" just on the "evidence" of a few posters that have posted and not posted.

The bottom line is we don't know this one way or the other. A definite conclusion cannot be made based on the information presented here on this site.

typical...people love to stir up the rumor mill but when you ask for evidence they go quiet. No one is being told they aren't getting a raise. go lie elsewhere trolls.

Who is being told already they aren't getting a raise? And is it in writing or just the typical ADP rumor mill which is correct about 10% of the time? Name your BU and Department.

Cry me a river. Think anyone cares you didn't get a raise. Give it a few more days and you won't even have a job!

Wah! Wah! No raise and no merit. Are you kidding me?! Be thankful that you have a job!

Merit increases are never guaranteed. You should never count on it, though we often do.

Back in the early 2000s, we went though a difficult economy. ADP still made money, but employees got switched from a 12 to an 18 month review, received no increase one year, and even when we returned to "normal", got maybe a 1% or 2% increase. After that time, increases were lower than they had been prior to the economic downturn, and we had some good economies in the past 20 years.

Grim Reaper,

You are correct. ADP is constantly looking to save on labor costs and your Millennial generation has been targeted for employment. But you are cheaper, not necessarily smarter. Don't get too c—y. ADP wants cheap above smart, above accomplished, and above competent.

Unfortunately, your working shelf life is much shorter than the Boomers because ADP and other companies will grab at and tear at any and all options to further reduce labor costs. In less than 10 years you too will be "too expensive" and younger workers will replace you. The cycle will repeat and repeat. Other younger "Grim Reapers" will indeed replace you.

Don't falsely believe that ADP will offer you long time job security. Sr. mgt and their consulting advisors are always looking for ways to get cheaper and cheaper with labor. Sometimes it means going overseas and sometimes it means going to depressed areas in the US where workers with similar skills will work for a fraction of the wages in other markets. Once mgt sees that home work can be done effectively there is no reason to pay higher wages anymore. By the way, that goes for lots of companies not just ADP

@pyk+15CbyTaG
I get it. I've been underpaid since day one and I'm nearing 15 years. I've probably missed out on $140,000 in that time due to my less than market grade salary. It's a hard pill to swallow sometimes. But I look at it like this: I'd rather be a little underpaid than unemployed.

That's just me, and that probably doesn't fly for most people here. Totally fine, and I respect that. But for me it's security and longevity over risk and higher rewards.

Missing out on merit and bonus s—s. If it were any other situation I'd be angry. Right now though? Right now is the time to hunker down in my opinion. I'll ask for a raise next year to make up for this year. If I don't get it, well, I guess I can always leave. No hard feelings.

I went through two recessions while working my 32 years at ADP. Each time a recession ended we never really recovered as employees, never received merit increases in the amount we deserved.
ADP is actually saving probably millions of dollars with employees working from home. Saving in electricity cost, cleaning cost and paper goods cost. You deserve your merit increases.

We should be happy we all still have jobs. I’ll take a no merit this year to know that I still have a job!

No soup for you!

You didn't hear this from me, but there was talk that the $1000 "token good will bonus" they tossed all employees was planned ahead of time in replacement for raises.

@ooo+15CbyTaG - you are 100% right. But the truth is ADP will never care about any employee. I can assure you I was a 5 star employee with more knowledge and hugely verifiable proof that my work was excellent, contributions far outweighed virtually everyone in my division, and was paid well through the years: guess what they valued? guess what they did? guess what they said mattered? It's ONLY about lowering the costs. The problem is the lying CFO's and the bean counters ONLY look at the salary cost and not the value. So cheap c-appy Indian labor is their plan!

Sorry, no raise because of the COVID. We'll take anything to save on labor costs and this a good cover. You worked real hard and excelled in this appraisal year? Too bad, so sad. But thanks for playing. Better luck next year. Unless the billion dollar loans that ADP took out come due.

Post ID: @jli+15CbyTaG

Haven't seen an announcement for that either, but I've been hearing from my team that we shouldn't expect merit or bonus this year since November.

All my people understand, and while they like it as much as I do, we're all being adults about it. Same things happened in 2008 or maybe it was 2009.

Where did you hear this ? I don’t have an email? Honestly I’m not sure what everyone expects. Our entire economy GS tanked. We should be thankful to have jobs.
