I have not heard anything about recent layoffs in the past few weeks- should we assume they have ended for now? Are there assumptions that more will be laid off at the end of the FY? Has sales been impacted at all?

There was just a layoff this week
Not by a longshot! The tatics are shifting but the uncertainty is growing. ADP's executive management is growing more desperate. The stock has started a 3 day almost free fall. Large Institutional investors (including Bill Ackman) have either bailed or are in the process of bailing out of ADP in huge numbers. The clients are more unhappy than ever. The highly inexperienced, tantrum throwing millennial babies are incapable of producing solid results and are leaving as fast as they are hired for better wages elsewhere. ADP's middle management is a complete joke. Expect more and more layoffs as a desperate attempt to try and keep the stock from falling more. Lies will continue about the "Nextgen" products, when in reality is like dog p–p 2.0: it stinks just as bad if not worse!
"Have they ended?" Seriously? The plan is elimination of upwards of 20,000 people. Obviously, ADP is going to replace many positions merely due to saving a few short sided bucks, but pay dearly in repercussions, satisfaction, and client retention. It is still is the "lying" phase right now, but I am dead serious that Carlos and BCG schemed 20,000 people in the grand 2020 vision. Bottom line is, the layoffs will continue for quite a while. And even if/when they stop the horrible environment is not a place to work.
@ZjVy8RD-lrta - Were you affected? Which location(s) and role(s)?
They just announce layoffs today
It's when you don't hear things that you should be concerned. It used to be after fiscal you were good until next May. Now, the dates have changed and it is less predictable, some in Oct, some in Jan.
I speak from experience, I also did not hear anything, this is, until I got called into a conference call meeting................ So, keep your resume updated and your eyes open.
No one knows the fate of the "strategic" locations.
What's happening to other locations, like Dallas? Any updates?
Miami and Louisville are new to being named as One locations.
Just validated. The seven locations listed are OneADP locations. (Validated against portal because I've seen a lot of misinformation about the locations.)
Adding Augusta, Miami and Louisville to @ZjVy8RD-5jkn list of pearl offices.
Maitland, El Paso, Tempe and Norfolk are OneADP locations.
WOW! ADP laid off one of their precious offshore teams??!!! Not sure if this is true or not but this is what started the lay off of US Employees. God forbid you hire employees in the country where your company originated!! And have employees that your clients can understand when they have to call ADP! (Just another annoying thing that clients hate & yes that is a fact)
Which locales are considered as OneADP?
Hearing this about the oneADP locations makes me think that field sales may also be impacted by the growth of telesales at ADP. There is a new building being constructed in Allentown PA for telesales and despite only having 800 telesales employees in Allentown today, this building will hold over 1600 for ADP. I wonder where the other 800 are coming from?
@ZjVy8RD-1trf - You are right. This is the truth of their strategy. ANYONE not in a OneADP location is subject to upcoming lay-offs and restructure/reorganization of duties to newly hired/trained OneADP associates. If your location is a non-OneADP center, you are not as safe and secure as you might believe, beyond their transition timeline 2020.
Not by a long shot. The layoffs were scheduled to occur in waves from 2017 through 2020. (Recall the 2020 "vision" the geniuses thought was "cute" - well that's it). Bottom line is ADP is a horribly broken and poorly led company that is getting more desperate by the day. If you are somehow married to the payroll business, there are lots of competitors hiring ex-ADP employees as they know how messed up the leadership is and the bad decisions they have made. Regardless of payroll or not, there is much much much better companies to work for and not deal with the horrid environment that ADP has become. Life after ADP is so much better.
Yes, heard that too. They closed down operations in Romania of 2 teams in NAS. Heard that they will replace in the US and India, more then likly no replace or India :)))
Yes that's the point of the OneADP locations. My whole department exists only because of all the layoffs. We generally would hear before hand who was about to be laid off so that we could prepare for the extra work to come our way.
From my time at ADP, I believe what they do is ramp up hiring for specific positions at the supercenters. Once those lower paid employees are in place, then the affected "higher paying" existing employees get walking papers. Sad but true!!! That's why it's slow going and some teams are super surprised when they get a layoff notice.
I heard an offshore team was laid off this week.
