Pros

Namely is the perfect solution for a small business like ours. It has saved me so much time compared to the previous solution we used for HR and payroll.
For the most part, it is very intuitive and user friendly. Being user friendly makes it easy for me as the admin but more importantly it makes it easy for my employees to navigate.
Friendly support staff, easy to get set-up, many self-service tools and customizations and always improving. I am very happy with Namely.

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

You can never get an support, answers, or solutions to urgent issues such as Namely back end payroll system errors. Errors that cost the company thousand of dollars.
I dislike that I keep having problems in logging into it.
I just think their customer service format changes frequently and it is confusing sometimes to keep up with their preferred communication etiquette.

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.
