Pros

Their report writing is great and they have lots of free classes that will help you with this. The payroll and hr software is easy to navigate and customizable.
The functionality of the system overall - how each module works with each other, and the fact that I can customize it to my needs myself as we change. The ease of use and training are outstanding.
The support team we have now is incredibly responsive to our requests and the functions in UltiPro have improved the quality of our internal processes. When there have been issues with support, etc.

Pros

It was nice that there were PPP reports created to help with the application as well as the forgiveness. They were very helpful while going through those processes.
I like that there are a variety of solutions to help with all of our HR processes. The system is user friendly and common sensical.
Our of the 4 payroll companies that we have used over the last 10 yrs, Paylocity is my favorite. The program is the easiest to use and the employees like it the best.

Cons

It takes months and months of training and practice and making mistake after mistake to figure out the basics of how to build reports.
At our workplace, sometimes the punches are not recorded on the employee station, causing problems with hours because it does not register them.
Dislike having to change my password so frequently.

Cons

If it weren't a hassle to switch systems, I would switch in a heartbeat. This is a terrible platform and I am unimpressed with the company as a whole.
It is hard to give negative feedback about a product that does more than one can fully comprehend. The report writer can be tricky if you are not familiar with how to use it.
The interface is terrible and they are making changes all the time. I have a rotating door of "account managers" and never get ahold of the same person twice.

UKG Pro Employee Portal

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

UKG Pro is a great employee portal for paychecks, deposits, and other employee information.

Cons

I can't really think of any cons since before this I used ADP and Paylocity; and UKG is way better.

Great program for company payroll

Reviewed 6 years ago

Employee timecard approval for payroll.

Pros

User friendly, and very easy program to keep track of employee time. Easy to approve time cards and scheduling. Option to take pictures of employees when clocking in and out. All employee information in one place.

Cons

When an employee has approved pro. You have to go to the scheduler and delete there normal shift or you will not be able to approve timecard. Not a big deal, just took some time to figure it out.

Paylocity

Paylocity is an excellent platform for managing various HR functions.

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Paylocity is straightforward and easy to use. The UI is clean, and navigation is easy because of the intuitive way it is laid out. Anyone can use the platform; there is no ramp-up time or learnings that need to be done.

Cons

Paylocity's simpleness that is a pro in many ways also means that it lacks some of the advanced functionality that competitors have. It is not an extremely customizable tool, so if your workplace does not follow typical company 'norms' with payroll, timesheets, etc, you might have a difficult time with it.

Paylocity software- employee end user

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Easy of functionality on site, visibility to detailed pay stubs, vacation requests, and approving subordinate's time off requests.

Cons

a pro and a con: Paylocity is customizable to each company's needs, however if not set up correctly can cause errors in accounting and payroll. Vacation days that should have been "non paid salary" we automatically paid to salaried employees in error. pay close attention to detail when implementing this software.

Paylocity

We switched from TAG Payroll Services to Paylocity.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

In our HVAC & Plumbing company, as we continued to expand and grow, we switched from TAG Payroll Services to Paylocity. The main Pro truthfully is that the cost was cheaper to manage our company. Another bonus is that the way that a paycheck is broken down and displayed is quite aesthetic--it's big, bold, colorful, and easy to read.

Cons

With the switch from Tag Payroll Services to Paylocity, the one function I do miss is the employee birthday calendar. It might sound silly, but I think it built a lot of comradery to be able to see whose birthday it was that week in the building. Minor grievance, but nothing we can't live without. Also sometimes the log in feature seems buggy--the password is inputted correctly, but the login doesn't take it.
