An Insider's view of Paylocity

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I work fully remote, but even filtered through computer screens the Paylocity vibe is palpable. The values we’ve committed to upholding as a company resonate deeply with everyone that works here, which means they come to life in every interaction. We are professional yet FUN, savvy yet approachable, and relaxed yet extremely driven.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as a Government Relations Specialist and now I am a Government Relations Project Manager. I wouldn't have been able to do this without a supportive, team, company work/life balance, and investing in one's career with a deeper lens. I have seen myself grow a lot throughout these years at Paylocity and look forward to more.


Government Relations Project Manager

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Before Paylocity, I struggled with work/life balance and boundaries. My manager is incredibly flexible and adjusts workloads to ensure we never reach a burnout situation. If I ever need to adjust my schedule to take a kid to the doctor, or take PTO, there's never an issue. I'm much happier after coming to Paylocity and finding that balance!
