Pros: I love the ease of JustWorks platform. We used another PEO before switching to JustWorks and all reporting and features were third party integrations that never worked. JustWorks is a one stop shop and has updated access to anything and everything you may need. Their on-boarding process is detailed and customer focused and they even answered questions from my team about insurance concerns. They walked me through the transition step by step and were available immediately to answer any questions I had. I could go on for days about how much easier JustWorks has made my job!

Cons: Because JustWorks is so new, there are a few reports that they haven't implemented yet. We have a PTO accrual system that rolls over every year but maxes out at 96 hours (this changes based on goals) and JustWorks has no way to track this. Once a day is used, it can be recouped by working another month, encouraging employees to take time off. It's been difficult for me to try and track this and when asked about it, JustWorks said it's not something they have developed yet.

Pros: The software UI/UX is lightyears ahead of stodgy, archaic software like Trinet. It's also modern and sleek, which makes my employees just feel good and more confident in using the system. It's so much easier to navigate and offers valuable, yet simple, features that amazingly - clunky systems like Trinet can't manage to code into their dashboards. For example, Justworks lets us direct deposit pay to contractors via the software (with Trinet we had to use a separate processing system like PayPal to pay contractors). It also includes a cool company calendar that employees can login to view upcoming holidays, paydays, etc. Finally, it makes requesting PTO seamless and actually fun for the end user. On top of it all - Justworks offers us cheaper insurance plans (which benefit's my team's pocket books) and is a fraction of the overall monthly fee.

Cons: It's really hard for me to find a con. The only one I can say is that they don't offer white-glove, concierge services to answer more "complex" HR questions. I've heard Justworks might be adding a professional services team to resolve this.

Overall: Overall, it's benefitted employee engagement, increased efficiency and decreased costs. Basically, Justworks does what every HR software vendor claims to do, but very very few ever achieve.

Pros: Very beautiful, easy to use, serves the purpose very clearly. I love that it was very quick to learn and keeps getting better. If I ever have questions about insurance my account rep is amazingly quick to respond and always helpful.

Cons: There isn't anything bad I can say!

Overall: I've used Justworks for a little over a year now and I adore it. They are always super helpful over the phone and email. I send them as many referrals as I can! I love that I can manage tons of contractors and schedule payments very easily. Their profiles make it easy for my employees to manage their settings and keep up to date with payments.

Recommendations to other buyers: We didn't start using Justworks soon enough and it made our first year of taxes very difficult. This year has been a breeze. My advice, start using Justworks as soon as possible.

Pros: Justworks is amazing. We have been onboarding them as we transition from TriNet and I could not be happier. They have answered every question--whether big or small. They have an amazing support team. I also was able to talk to someone from their HR support team, and they are super knowledgeable but also very nice and engaging without being dry. I feel like I am in great hands as we make this switch. The UI is also excellent and employees love how easy it is to use.

Cons: There are some minor glitches here and there that I will notice (i.e. display issues etc.), but the minute I tell them they get it fixed by EOD. I appreciate the swiftness in which they deal with problems.

Overall: Justworks has saved us from an incredibly outdated software which is an absolute behemoth and hard to use. Justworks makes me more efficient, reduces questions from employees and makes me feel confident that if I don't have the answer they definitely will. I would highly recommend making the switch.

Pros: Justworks has a great UX and is easy for our team members to use to navigate the company policy and structure, which isn't always obvious given our small and informal team.

Cons: Not much, but I find that the "time off" page can be a bit clunky/ doesn't have the smoothest navigation.

Overall: I love using Justworks to stay on top of days off, company scheduling, and personal documents. I feel comfortable knowing everything is in one place and keeping it all paperless.

Pros: Justworks makes it super-easy to manage HR, payments to contractors, payroll and benefits. We use it to pay all of our vendors and Justworks handles all the IRS reporting for us.

Cons: It was tough to figure out some issues w/ our benefits and we went back and forth for a few weeks working on it w/ Justworks. It seems like they were just getting familiar w/ benefits themselves, so we were both climbing the learning curve.

Overall: We've had mostly positive experiences w/ Justworks, except for when we had issues w/ our benefits, at which point it became difficult to get to the root cause of the issue.

Overall: In the past, I've worked with other high-level systems. I find that justworks is geared more towards smaller companies and startups. Though the software is not as developed, I find that the customer service makes up for that. The justworks team is great and I feel that they are taking good strides to improve their system.

Comments: We found Justworks on a hilarious subway ad (ooh man are those advertisements great!) while on the way to a meeting to establish a contact with a paycheck company. We wouldn't stop thinking about them in that meeting! Since we began our partnership with Justworks everything is a little easier. Even when things don't go as quickly or as well as we expect, it is still always faster and more reliable than us doing it on our own! We are able to feel free and like someone (many someones's!) have our back all day and night long. As Justworks has grown and as we have grown as a company, we feel more supported and like they are more available all the time. It has truly been one of the most educational experiences of our business careers to have the wealth of information and giant well of support that is Justworks. Super bonus: anytime something does not work well for us, they offer an upgraded version to us (in other words, Justworks is always listening and looking for new ways to serve their customers so that the world is better served). THANK YOU!

Pros: It makes it easy for employees to see their paychecks, benefits and manage enrollment during the year. One less thing to worry about.

Cons: The additional service they offer are not actually very good. We tried using some of the random 'extra' services and they were a time sink. We spent over 3m and 6h of our time talking to people who were unable to resolve the billing issues they said they could help with. No idea if they even ever tried.

Pros: Justworks makes HR and payroll as simple as can be. The user experience of the software is top notch and incredibly user friendly. They are also cheaper than some of the competition in terms of per user fees.

Cons: The healthcare plans are somewhat limited and more expensive than their competitors and the outsourced HR function is lacking compared to a few other companies.

Pros: Justworks is very easy to use. Each section is clearly labeled and organized in a way that makes sense. Basic sections iclude "Paystubs," "Timecards," and "Benefits." I refer back to it a lot when I have questions about my benefits. It has been very useful for storing my important personal information. Unlike other software, it's compatible with all of my banks for direct deposits.

Cons: Some features that seem obvious (such as saving your hours on your timecard throughout the week) were not present until very recently. You had to record your hours elsewhere and enter them all at once at the end of two weeks, which basically defeated the purpose of the Timecards section. That feature was supposedly added though it's not clear how you use it.

Overall: Justworks has certainly served its purpose as an HR software. A few minor uprgades would make it nearly perfect, but it does what it needs to do.

2. They have a super helpful and easy-to-reach support team.

3. The work benefits you can opt into, such as citibike programs or gym membership discounts.

Cons: If I had to think of something, it would most likely be one of the settings we chose internally that was not easy to change immediately as it was related to a benefit that if changed would not take effect for months.

Comments: We're growing rapidly and had just hired a COO for operational issues, but discovered she is also extremely good with customers too. So we needed to automate even more processes, and quickly. Justworks was a perfect choice, both for helping us decide which direction in health benefits would support our continued growth, and with the streamlining the benefits tax paper trail we needed too.

Pros: Extremely easy to use and to understand what the best choices for our particular employee structure were. Empowered us to feel confident in the choices we made, as our employees are a key asset for us.

Cons: We haven't found any yet and feel pretty confident that, even as the new presidential administration "changes the HC rules", that we have made the best possible choices.

Recommendations to other buyers: As every country health care systems change, the #1 decision variable in choosing what works best for you and your company is "How agile is it?" From there, all you can do is be certain that, at the time, you've not only made the best choice, but you can adapt just as quickly when things change.
