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

The implementation team was great when we were getting this started as they were very helpful and answered all of our questions.
This product was recommended by our CPA who uses it for his own office. That recommendation was good enough for us and it has proven to be an invaluable asset to our business.
Great service, great app, great website. User friendly, leaves me with no questions after checking my breakdowns every pay period.

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

I never criticize publicly about an organization but this one was so very unprofessional and even made worse by the outrageous fees they charge.
It can be a problem to login to the work site which is frustrating when trying to clock in or clock out on time.
Just about everything else. Its not user-friendly, its customer service is terrible and we get so many complaints for employees, as the admin I have limited resources to help.

Overall, Gusto was a lot better than Paychex Flex.

Pros

Gusto is very easy to use and has a very aesthetically pleasing platform. makes it easy for employees to understand.

Cons

The thing I liked the least about the platform is the breakdown of my pay. The layout of the page wasn't necessarily the easiest to navigate.

Gusto! EASY to use payroll software for small business!

Pros

I used to use Paychex ... Gusto is SO easy compared to Paychex AND I'm saving a ton of money in fees associated with the number of employees I have! I am able to run payroll every week (which is my preference) because it's that much cheaper!

Cons

Love this Solution

Reviewed 5 years ago

Payroll for my business - they did a great job after an unmitigated disaster with Paychex.

Pros

The customer support is fantastic and it is a very simple to use SaaS app to manage payroll and benefits for a small business like ours. The people are great, knowledgeable and supportive and the app is fast and easy to use and secure so my information is safe. The payroll features let you "set it and forget it" or authorize everything.

Cons

Not much - it's really well thought out. I would like to map payroll data a little more granularly so we can track expenses better but this solution is one of the good ones.

Clean interface for good payroll product

Reviewed 2 years ago

I generally recommend Gusto, ADP, or Paychex as payroll options. Gusto's interface is pretty clean and simple which can appeal to clients. ADP and Paychex might be better options for clients who need additional items such as 401k plans, workers comp, etc.

Pros

Gusto prices are on the lower end compared to competitors such as QBO, ADP, and Paychex. The interface looks clean and simple. Looking for reports is easier compared to to other interfaces. The incentives for accountants to refer clients are pretty aggressive but this seems to change as competitors adapt.

Cons

I have dealt with issues in the past which take months to resolve. This is not something just unique to Gusto.

Easy to use payroll system

Reviewed 3 years ago

Very satisfied customer. Coming from Paychex and their cumbersome system, using Gusto has been an awesome transition.

Pros

Ease of use. Integration with my timecard system (Homebase) has made submitting payroll a breeze. I like the onboarding process of new employees and how Gusto handles my employee benefits and time off as well.

Cons

I would like the timecard system to be improved so I would not need another solution to handle that.

Pros

Great employee portal, access and information. It was a great experience on the employee side. I used to work for Paychex as a Payroll Processor and was delighted with this product.

Cons

The lack of ability to issue a final paycheck in a quicker manner than 2x's a month, leading the employer to think that's legal and it's not in our state.

Pros

I changed over tom PayChex to Gusto because of the price. It is just my husband and I for payroll and the $19 package was a great deal as we don't deal with benefits and such.

They are doing away with the super small business $19 option and moving it to $39 I will likely cancel when this happens and go elsewhere.

Such a relief for payroll

Reviewed 4 years ago

We are a low-turnover shop so mostly this is about getting employees paid, able to record time off, manage benefits and do all that without hassle or errors. Gusto delivers on that.

Pros

It's so simple, especially compared with hiring a payroll company like Paychex. Managing benefits is easy, reports are easy, set up is easy. For a small shop like ours, it's given us a huge reduction in headaches and hassle.

Cons

Base price is a little high, especially with time tracking and benefits added, but its still not even close to what we were paying for a full-fledged payroll company

Gusto makes tracking hours easy

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use Gusto every day. It is easy to request time off for work where ALL of my superiors are able to see (so no surprises). It affords me to have flex time as I don't have to use the "clock in" and "clock out" feature.

Pros

I really like that I can adjust my hours or add in my hours later. I'm terrible at remembering to "clock in" and "clock out". Gusto makes it possible to adjust my hours based on my schedule.

Cons

In general, the software works great. I have no complaints.

I have worked with ADP and Paychex. Gusto has provided an easier way of doing payroll and whenever I have a problem or question, I can speak to a person fairly quickly. No hour long waits on the phone to a call center. Real people in the USA.

Pros

Gusto is a no nonsense payroll program! Easy to use. User-friendly. Customer service is second to none. The reporting is easy to understand, even for newbies to payroll. And they make it fun! Little characters and nuances on the website add a little brightness to a dull task.

Cons

Cost Us More In Tax Fees Than Saved Us In Payroll

Reviewed 3 years ago

We used this to replace Paychex because they were charging far too much for our small business needs. Gusto seems ok but there are flaws in their system as well - specifically not sending required paperwork to the state regardless of how many payrolls are run. They also spam a ton with marketing emails.

Pros

Pricing was the main reason we chose Gusto. However, once we started with it, it was a bigger time suck and they are a bit misleading/confusing.

Cons

We don't always run payroll on a weekly basis so we didn't run for a quarter. However, we had set everything up with a Gusto rep so we though they were good. They ended up not submitting forms to our state with 0s because we hadn't run a payroll yet. We had no idea that form submissions to the state were tied to the payroll processing.

The easiest, most elegant payroll option for small businesses

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, this is the best payroll processor I've used.

Pros

Gusto is dead simple to set up and use as a payroll administrator for my bookkeeping side business . I also get paid at my day job with Gusto, so I've experienced both sides, and I love it both as an admin and as an employee. It integrates really well with Deputy (used for time tracking) and Xero (used for accounting). It is lightyears ahead of Paychex and ADP when it comes to user experience.

Cons

It's hard to come up with something I dislike. The lack of built-in job costing means it isn't the best fit for every business.

Fantastic Experience with Gusto!

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, Gusto has been an excellent choice for our business. We've been able to quickly and easily set up payroll and benefits, and their customer service team has always been incredibly helpful and responsive.

Pros

Gusto has been an absolute lifesaver for our business. Their user-friendly platform makes payroll and benefits setup a breeze, and the customer service team is always ready to help with any questions or issues.

Cons

The only downside I've noticed is that it can be a bit slow to calculate taxes, but that might just be due to the complexity of all the laws and regulations.

Paycheck Flex is good for a large company

Reviewed 4 years ago

We used this as a free trial. We found it has services to suit for businesses of different sizes. In our small company however, we found Gusto was a better fit and more cost effective. Your mileage may vary.

Pros

This is an excellent payroll service for a large company. It allows your payee to choose form of payment-direct deposit or paper check. It also keeps a good record of everything, and dashboard and customer service are better than its competitor Gusto.

Cons

It's not cost efficient for small companies. Also there is sometimes so much info available for our payroll that it can get slow finding what I precisely need.
