Pros

Overall our rapidly growing business was due for a professional, easy, and affordable tool to manager payroll, benefits, HR related things, etc. and this was perfect.
I love that it allows employees the ability to access and change their profiles and be responsible for their timecards.
I love how user friendly this product is for everyone. Everything is very self explanatory and if you have any questions, customer service is very helpful and patient.

Pros

I like the ease of scheduling and the ease of accessibility. My employees enjoy having their schedule at their fingertips at all times.
It utilizes all of my employees' availabilities and I love having the ability to see that my employee has acknowledged their schedules.
We loved all of the features and integrations. With the new law that was supposed to go into effect for salary overtime, this was the perfect software to choose.

Cons

We have been very frustrated with our implementation and ongoing service. They push to go live in a very short amount of time but did a terrible job of working to make sure the set up was right.
I have had several daily timecards messed up because of this.
When researching Paycom the only negative review I seemed to come across was difficulty with the software.

Cons

I did not realize this when signing up, and find it a maddening waste of time when you have a real problem to solve (and you will have problems!).
My only bad experience is that I had to restart my phone a few times because of the GPS problems when I was trying to clock in, which was annoying and time-consuming.
If you make a mistake and accidentally alter the availability for one day you have to go back to that day and fix it before adjusting your availability.
