Provided through my previous employer!

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Content with the services it provided to me at that time, which was through my previous employer. Used about 1.6 years! (1y, 6m)

Pros:

Only used until upgraded to different provider/platform altogether!

Cons:

I never had a problem with this software, honestly. ESPECIALLY compared to some/other providers of the same functions/purpose.

This software is the easiest one for payroll in my experience.

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Overall it is a real decent software to use. It is user friendly and has most all the features you need.

Pros:

That I can review my W2 and all my paystubs in the same place whenever I need to and I can print them or download them easily. I love the clock in machine to.

Cons:

The APP takes forever to log in a lot of the times. I would be on time coming back from lunch but by the time the app would open and I clocked back in I would be , sometimes up to 4 minutes late. Those minutes add up when you only get paid once a month.

Paychex Flex is Not the Best for Our Small Company

3.0 last month New

Comments: We're always getting offers to add more products and services. Their sales team can be relentless. It was difficult to get changes in personnel leave hours done by the customer service team, but I've found a way to make those changes myself. I wish we still had MyPayCenter from Deluxe Payroll.

Pros:

They take care of filing taxes and doing direct deposit.

Cons:

The website is cumbersome, and reports are difficult to drill down to. Categories are vague. After our introductory rate, the cost will be prohibitive for our small company.

Solid solution at an affordable price

Comments: Paychex Flex has been great to use. It has been good for us.

Pros:

It is easy to use and maintain. Set up was also easy with great support.

Cons:

Some of the more involved things need support...but...it has always provided.
