Pros

In the day to day work life sometimes it's hard to show fellow coworkers that you appreciate what they do but Bonusly has made it really easy and fun to give positive feedback.
I LOVE being able to recognize my peers and the accomplishments they make or help that they provide. It helps keep everyone motivated and on the right path to success.
I love the fact I can shout out my co-workers with funny GIFS and show my appreciation with points that I know they will use for something they like.

Pros

I love the ease of entering employee information into the system. Paylocity allows both the employer and employee to view their benefit information and payroll information quickly.
Overall, I have had a positive experience with Paylocity. We have recently integrated more of our benefits with their system and it seems to be a seamless process.
The software is very user friendly and if I have any difficulty I just call customer service and they are able to help me quickly. Best customer service I have encountered.

Cons

The restriction of gifs to include used to be abled to be customized, but have since been restricted to a pre-set pool.
Its too easy to abuse and give out bonuses for stupid reasons.
It's a bit pricey, especially for those with larger companies (it's charged per user).

Cons

The software is not as flexible as Paylocity would have you believe. We faced many struggles throughout our implementation and have still been struggling with policies 7 mos into our time with them.
There are still functions on the software that I am not utilizing because I never received follow up calls. I came from Quickbooks and it's difficult to reprint a lost check.
There seems to be disconnection between the separate systems, Web Pay, Web Time, Web Benefits, ACA that create a lot of headache, too many errors, and lots of frustration.

Bonusly

staff really enjoys the bonuses

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

easy to use and share bonuses, however the app gives me trouble at times scrolling the names. all staff really likes the choices

Cons

we have really found no cons at this time. we would like it to migrate with our payroll software, Paylocity but expect that it may in the future

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback, Tanya! It's wonderful to hear that your staff finds Bonusly easy to use and enjoy bonusing! I'm sorry to hear that there's an issue with scrolling names. We'd love to work with you to get this cleared up as well as chat more about a Paylocity integration. Could you reach out to us at support@bonus.ly?

Paylocity

Paylocity WebPay

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It's pretty easy to use to see your paychecks throughout the year.

Cons

There's nothing I dislike! I would say the mobile app could use some more features, such as seeing history of salary, bonus, etc.

Paylocity

Easy software for time management

Reviewed 8 months ago

This software is used to keep track of employees hours for a large company.

Pros

I like that you can have employees add in extras like gas mileage, bonuses, on call pay and other things and then supervisors can choose to accept it.

Cons

It would be easier if the pto would automatically go on the persons account according to the amount of hours worked.

Paylocity

An OK Payroll Software

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Each employee has his/her own access to clock in/out. The feature of supervisor approval is neat. It allows shift differential rate, bonus, all kinds of deductions. All employee info, benefits and rate could be stored in one place.

Cons

The report library has too many reports, and the filter doesn't work. I had a hard time to find reports to meet my needs, and it's very hard to customize reports. No training program.

Paylocity

We love it

Reviewed 8 days ago

We love it.

Pros

I love that the employees can log into Paylocity and view their own checkstubs and tax records for the past several years. We love the ease of processing payroll too. I also love that if we have questions we can call and anyone can help us.

Cons

Sometimes I feel the use could be a bit more intuitive? For example, we max out the number of vacation hours that employees can roll over from year to year- we've had some difficulty in the past truing up these numbers. Sometimes running a bonus check batch is tricky- again, we can always call (& have done so) to get support though.

Paylocity

We switched from TAG Payroll Services to Paylocity.

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

In our HVAC & Plumbing company, as we continued to expand and grow, we switched from TAG Payroll Services to Paylocity. The main Pro truthfully is that the cost was cheaper to manage our company. Another bonus is that the way that a paycheck is broken down and displayed is quite aesthetic--it's big, bold, colorful, and easy to read.

Cons

With the switch from Tag Payroll Services to Paylocity, the one function I do miss is the employee birthday calendar. It might sound silly, but I think it built a lot of comradery to be able to see whose birthday it was that week in the building. Minor grievance, but nothing we can't live without. Also sometimes the log in feature seems buggy--the password is inputted correctly, but the login doesn't take it.
