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.

Pros

I love that it integrates with our ATS (Jazz HR) so flowing hired over is super easy. Our employees have a lot of documents to sign upon hire and having it all done electronically makes life so easy.
This is a pretty good product, super user friendly and you don't need too much support usually. The team was good about setting it up with relatively few hiccups.
Our employees also find GoCo to be very user friendly. They also have wonderful customer service.

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.

Cons

The reports sometimes freeze - I have close out the browser and reopen, or refresh. It can be frustrating, especially if it takes 10+ minutes to pull a reports.
We've not come across anything we're unhappy with so far.
I may have limited access but every time I would click on the Calendar nothing would come up.
