Pros

Its super simple to use and easy to get around to the information i'm looking for. I really like the fun things they send when you get paid.
We use it for payroll and benefits and its simple and effective. The customer service is also great as they are "human" because they actually listen and answer questions.
Not only do they make it easy to use the platform, the dashboard and overall experience with their tool is pleasant and truly great.

Pros

In fact, they are one of our best and most responsive corporate partners and business developers. They are professional and always responsive and available to help.
The tax software is also good and very easy to use. Payroll Inspector is very nice in that it will determine the correct local taxes for employees.
It has definitely gotten better over the years. Very happy with everything now.

Cons

Tax calculations and deductions for each employee is difficult to achieve with the software. Leave management is restricted to admininistrator alone.
I now use a different service because I was tired of the lack of organization in this regard, and the implication that by expecting more, I was being unreasonable.
My biggest frustration is inability to sign documents. I still have to use Docusign then upload the documentation into the individual profiles instead of kicking it off directly during onboarding.

Cons

On the Political Subdivision under the employee tab, the drop down is very large.
The portal / website is a bit confusing because the steps are not very clear when revisiting the website. I didn't know that some steps did not need updating before completing submission.
When calling into customer service, it is difficult to work my way up to an "expert" who can fix an issue that takes more knowledge than the front line person has.
