If you're a 'yes man', this is the place for you
Field Enablement (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 February 2017
Leadership says they want change but then do not empower or enable their team members to actually do it and are wholly out of touch with what it takes to change a static and slow moving organization. Ideas are top down, and you do best if you agree with whatever your leader has to say. Recent changes in leadership have promoted the most exemplary 'yes men' to executive leadership positions, and their primary focus is making themselves look good in front of the new president. Big egos, arrogance and scant on new ideas, the leadership in field enablement (and service) are singularly focused on old ideas and get their teams to act on them, piling more and more work on to people that are maxed out. If you disagree, it doesn't bode well for you. But, if you have a great idea, they appropriate it as their own and don't share credit.
Overall a de-motivating environment. Working late in the office and then resuming the work at home is the norm, and it is never appreciated or acknowledged. The victims of this staid and undynamic environment are the clients and the people that work there. ADP's position in the industry is facing a significant erosion because the organization just can't get the servicing of clients right due to poor leadership lacking ideas, vision, or the confidence to let others bring new ideas to the table. The company is great at celebrating its market leading position, but its competitors are beating them at every turn when it comes to servicing and communicating with clients.
