Our accountant recommended Paychex. It’s fine and they took care of health insurance for us. I should give Paychex more credit actually because anytime we have an issue, we can email a human and she gets right back to us, which is nice. They’re an old school, super analog company, but it works when we have an issue. We don’t use anything cool like Gusto which I should probably be using.

Paychex handles all things payroll related, including benefits and compensation.
Marketing Manager - StreamLink
Paychex handles a lot of our HR benefits as well as payroll. It’s a fairly large company, so you can see all that they offer.

We use Paychex, which is really easy to use and works in a straight-forward manner. We have an account manager who we ping if we need any help.

We used to use Paychex, but now we’re transitioning into using BambooHR to manage benefits and vacation time for our team.

We have Paychex integrated with Zenefits. They’ve done some revamping of their UI, but it’s still pretty heavy and old school. But overall, it’s okay, and their service is fine. And our account manager is very nice.

Paychex has gotten a lot better over the years; we’ve been using them for more than 10 years. Their UI and accuracy have improved, and their reports center is helpful. But it’s still clunky and unintuitive. When you need to make changes or updates, you need a lot of help from their customer service reps. But important questions are: is it accurate, and do people get paid? The answer has always been yes with them.

We use Paychex for payroll and insurance administration. It’s pretty old school and analog. I get a big packet of mail from them each week, and the font is not pretty, but it’s fine. They pay people, and I don’t worry about it! I also have a direct line to an actual human in New York for customer service, which is a big plus. Their customer service is quite good.

We use Paychex and have no complaints about it. Their interface is straightforward to use for our employees and simplifies the payroll process.
Co-founder & CEO - Priori Legal
We use Paychex, and we really like them. They’ve made payroll painless.
Founder - Qbox
We did a bit of looking at TriNet, but it was just too expensive and complex for our stage. Paychex has been easy to use. There are a number of limitations when it comes to the benefits--like which health insurances we can and can't use--which have made it tricky.
Founder - SenseHealth
We chose it for the ease with which it can be set up, and we love how it manages payroll and health insurance all in one service.

4%Stacklist Startups Are Using Paychex
Paychex is firmly rooted in the payroll space, though it has over time augmented its offerings and become a full-fledged PEO. That said, most users in the Stacklist community utilize Paychex for only their payroll needs. Its user interface is not great, especially compared to ZenPayroll’s user interface. One perk is access to dedicated and consistent HR assistance for companies who don’t have an experienced HR manager. Paychex prides itself on assigning an HR manager to each client versus other PEOs who direct customers to 800 numbers for support.
The software tends to be favored by small- and mid-sized companies that are looking to outsource some or all of their HR tasks, and who appreciate the hands-on support of a dedicated HR professional.
