Pros

The customer service level provided is excellent and very responsive, I couldn't have asked for a better Technical Lead than who we have.

DS

Deanna S.

We haven't used CompensationXL to its fullest capability probably but whenever I called with challenges or issues, my reps were responsive, helpful and supported me in getting the job done.

MT

Marsha T.

We were able to customize the reporting so our award approval process is very quick to complete. In addition, the customer service received from our account rep was always very timely and informative.

KS

Kathy S.

Pros

Very user friendly has great features i use it daily and its easy to clock in and out and has all my important info stored.

Jillian C.

I love the onboarding and sales process. Every person I talk with at Zenefits is pleasant and understanding.

David E.

I also really appreciated all of the resources for HR handbooks, job descriptions, performance reviews, etc. Customer service was great, and really flexible with some of my out of the box requests.

Cons

The obvious worst part about CompXL is the user interface, which is.

RA

Rebekah A.

The most obnoxious part is the uploading of employee data since I generally have many small, one-off adjustments to make that add up. You have to import it instead of tweaking it within the system.

RA

Rebekah A.

My only complaint is that the software runs slowly when using the online version of the workbook and when refreshing pages/moving between pages in the application.

KS

Kathy S.

Cons

The CSR sends the info to the tax team and I was told it takes over a month to process the missing 941. IN the meanwhile, I am getting nasty notices from IRS and am likely to have to pay penalties.

SV

Suresh V.

Mistakes are always made, but Zenefits tries to rectify and solve problems instead of throwing their hands up and saying it's too hard.

Tracy I.

As a user, I kept thinking what am I doing wrong, sat on hold for 3+ hours waiting for a rep, figured out a workaround only to find out it was a system issue.
