Comments: Paylocity has been amazing through and through. We have been able to do so many great engagement activities thanks to Community. Managers are able to submit journal entries on the go for quick responses and feedback.

Pros:

We love the mobile capability for our team. Most features are accessible from smartphones, which helps our technicians in the field.

Cons:

The benefits of EDI transfers were more of an issue that it's worth implementing. Rates changes and the open enrollment spreadsheet is cumbersome. It's our least favorite product.

Just... Don't.

1.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Horrible. Paylocity makes my job more difficult every day. As an HR employee, Paylocity is the root cause of every problem in our department. If I had the option and Paylocity were free, I would still pay to use something else.

Pros:

The visual appearance. For the most part, things LOOK professional.

Cons:

Everything else. Every part of the system is built to look like it works, but it all stops there. It's like a carboard cutout. Yeah, it looks like a person, but from every other perspective, there's NOTHING there.

Paylocity lets you see YOUR HR info!

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: I like that as a supervisor, I can edit and change the employees punches if they are not saved in real time. I can easily see the timesheets and know how many hours everyone has. The app needs improvement but the website is easy to navigate and you can pull tax info and print pay stubs easily.

Pros:

I value the features that Paylocity offers with time keeping, w-2 and tax information, wages, time off requests and daily punches because they can all be easily accesses by each employee at their own leisure. The time keeping features are wifi (IP) address specific as to allow employees to clock in /out from their own devices on wifi.

Cons:

The biggest issue I have with Paylocity would be that it rounds punches up or down depending on the actual minute on the hour. Let the minutes count for what they are. The app is also a disaster.
