ADP acknowledges hiring is tough due to the external market (higher pay, more wfh, better HR, trusting leadership and business support) but yet isn’t stepping up to fix the issue???? They merely give weak words of recognition as a bandaid solution. Sad………and bad for employee loyalty.

What I find interesting is I worked for ADP for 9 years and have been at many other companies. One thing that stands out (negatively) with ADP is the amount of what I call 'propaganda emails' they send out on a regular basis to the employees. It's like a brainwashing to show the facade of 'look at how great we are as a company.' I think the best companies do NOT have to do that because their employees truly KNOW deep down they work for a great company. ADP is all smoke and mirrors. A true sham!
Nice dodge with the accusatory "crybaby" gimmick. ADP is the one who has the problems and trying to blame employees who are merely observing and commenting is unprofessional and silly. Oh, that's right, ADP is an unprofessional organization. Sorry, forgot.
If crybaby is the most “substantive” comment someone can provide, I’d hate to see what “wonderful” contributions they make if employed at ADP.
Didnt know ADP employed so many 3rd grade crybabys
ADP is far from being in the same category of the modern 'tech companies'. Many people that I have worked with from the modern 'tech companies' so how old and antiquated the ADP software is. It's not flexible, configurable nor even close to comparing to the software of WorkDay, UKG, Paylocity etc. Good luck ADP.
Employees have leverage in the job market right now. We have taken so many employees from ADP in the last 6 months. It's always the same story...toxic culture, no work from home, overworked, weak leadership, and everyone is stressed to the max.
If you wan to leave ADP, now is the time. You can get a pay bump and work from home.
I worked for ADP for 13 years, and it used to be a company that cared about employees. I get contacted by ADP recruiters all the time, and will NEVER go back.
The phrase choosing beggars comes to mind when it comes to ADP hiring and talent retention. They want employees or tech people but don’t want to offer the freedoms, flexibility, and pay that most companies (esp tech) give. And they wonder why they are struggling to hire and retain??? Yet their competitors get it…. Unfortunately most of the Captains won’t go down with the ship…they’ll take their stocks, retire, and leave the rest of us to drown. Also, the person calling us whiners: Have you given up hope, or is that your management style? Hard to see that coming from someone outside of management….
Normally the whiners and complainers are the very employees who bring nothing to the table and are the lowest producers.
No one is asking for double our salaries….. only competitive amounts that keep up with housing and inflation in areas like CA, NJ and NY
What a thankless group of ingrates.
Most positions are dead end jobs with little to no possibility of upward mobility. Tenured associates have felt/known this for a LONG time now (Ex. quarterly layoffs of tenured associates - more coming every quarter).
Most tenured associates have been alienated and put into untenable- no win positions.
GET OUT! not worth the stress and anxiety
You will realize that you do have value in the open market
Best of luck
ADP could solve some of the issue by re-training employees for new roles instead of letting hard working, dedicated employees go. Employees sit in fear of constant layoffs, which is demoralizing and demotivating. Most would be willing to learn new products, new skills etc. but ADP hasn't taken that approach. They want loyalty but give none.
Having worked at ADP for decades, I know them well. They won't change for anything. In their book, employees had better know their place and shouldn't get too big for their britches.
It's either their way or the highway. No flexibility. No maneuvering room. No room for compromise. Don't baby the employees. Work them hard. Keep them frightened for their jobs. That's all that the ADP "enlightened" management knows how to do despite their rhetoric which is meant for outside consumption.
ADP would rather collapse than change their ways in trying to recruit talent.
And yet they continue to layoff good employees .
Yes its just lip service. THeyll only hire in One Adp locations while other buildings are mostly empty. some offices still haven’t opened after covid. There isn’t leadership at adp.
