Curious if others have found that their ADP experience has been a road block to finding jobs in non payroll companies. Seems like the outdated systems and methodologies don’t transfer well to other business models. ADP talks about moving away from silos but the jobs are all siloed...

Nope. Most companies know the great knowledge base of ADP associates and welcome the grooming they gain, gold mines, when they hire departed ADP workers. Have someone review your resume. Never undersell yourself. There are many opportunities out here.
I took the VERP and left in June of 2018. In looking for a new job I found my ADP experience to be very helpful and looked up very positively during the interview process. I did find another job that i'm very happy with and have no regrets at all leaving ADP. Like previous posters have said there definitely life outside of ADP. I know it's had to image if you've been with the company for a very long time but once you leave a lot of doors will open up.
IMO it is how you can communicate your value, not that you used any particular system, that will land you a job. I've seen a number of ADP resumes that highlight proprietary systems, reference ADP-only acronyms, etc. Have a friend outside of ADP review your resume.
