favortism is at an all high, developers take the blame when it was poor management.
negative workplace environment because of a morally deficient manager
no support in the team
attrition rate is really high putting developers scrutinized

leaders should undergo management training classes to best support developers perform their best
favoritism and office politics is ruining the work place

Anyone know what the expectation is for being in the office now? There has been nothing said since Srini suggested WFH if possible through holidays.

Also, for the pay‚Ķ. in a few months NYC (which houses ADP employees) will have to be transparent about pay. I’m guessing this will not help ADP in their recruiting and retention efforts once the salary dips are more apparent.

ADP doesn't care about you as employee. That is why they pay literally the worst in the industry. But hey...stock price keeps going up so what do I know

They have given out quite a few retention bonuses already to non management already. Many on my team received one. It did not keep people from still leaving after taking it.

Considering ADP is down a LOT of associates and cannot hire, existing associates are doing extra work. Current associates should demand management for a retention bonus.

For all you know upper management may already have retention bonuses in place for themselves

This place is a dumpster fire!
Digital transformation has been painful and failure. There is nothing agile about agile. Change is necessary and inevitable. ADP has targeted tenured associates for layoffs, which sends a clear message and the remaining workforce is demoralized. WFH or Office is irrelevant! They discarded talent for cheaper alternatives and are paying the price. That Karma is a bi--h! Last word was there are short 8-9K associates

Ironic how "leaders" are constantly posting on linkedin about how great this company is and they're hiring. NO its NOT! People are miserable here! Anyone recall how a few years back they changed tea bags from Lipton to a generic brand in order to save $? What a JOKE! Employee centric my rear end!

This place is TOXIC! Stay FAR Away!

Where IS the office, anyway?

I came to ADP out of a failed E-Commerce startup where I was the CTO. Into a (now defunct) acquisition. When that folded, I ended up doing "Agile" (what a joke) support. ADP is about as "Agile" as a hog-tied elephant.

But anyway, I ended up WFH, which was nice.

Roseland used to be five big buildings. Now is it what, 1 and a half? Or just 1? Granted, Bldg 1 is now a rat-warren of a cube-farm, with everyone on top of everyone else--- unless you're in the "Executive Suite," on the way to which they march all the VIPs through the rat-warren. (Ever notice--- the big, public spaces, are all bright and white, but go into the restrooms, and they look like they've not been remodeled since the 1980s!) I was never less productive than in the days I drove up there, stayed in the Marriott suites, and tried to work in that disaster-area.

From what I saw, Alpharetta was not much better, or worse.

Again, I'd get a Marriott "extended stay" suite and only go into the orifice for meetings.

WFH? Well, my constituents were as likely to be in Chennai or Hyderabad as in the US.

I could easily shuffle into my home office in my PJs to take a meeting in a place 10.5 hours later than where I am. And then to deliver a report, due at 8AM US Eastern for a 9AM meeting.

I was a Senior Technical Project Manager, so senior that I had to report to Senior Directors, lest I out-rank my manager.

I had a pretty good guy I worked for earlier-on, but he did such a good job he got laid off. I then got shuttled to a disaster of a career-climbing woman, who made unwelcome advances.

When VERP came out, and I (barely) qualified, I jumped at it. Like 3rd day.

My manager was surprised.

Clueless.

Performance studies apply to all the workers involved in the study not a select few.

And why would ADP hire these lazy b_ms anyway? I thought that this company attracted quality talent. Oh, yeah, forgot that ADP doesn't pay well enough to attract top talent. I guess ADP will have to babysit their workers in the office to try to elicit work from them. But how can lazy b_ms make a company great even if working in an office?

Performance studies only apply to people who actually work...not newly hired college kids who don't know work ethic. All metrics are down versus working in office. Back to the office lazy b-ms

ADP doesn't trust its employees to work from home anymore. So, back to the office everyone.

Psst... everyone knows that if you're working from home then you aren't really working. Right? Performance, studies, and experience contradicting that doesn't matter. Shhh... keep that quiet. Don't want to hear it. Working from home is BAD! Working from home is BAD! Keep quiet about the opposite. La, la, la, la! Got my ears plugged, can't hear you! Working from home is BAD!

Yup, still WFH. Do I want to go back into the office, no. I am tired of trying to put on a happy face, when there are so many issues within ADP. I prefer to sit at home, on mute, saying you have got to be fu----g kidding me with all of the failures that are going on.
