Pros: First of all I believe Gusto is more user friendly than any type of Quickbooks related software program. This program will literally keep your payroll organized and on point It actually gives me the exact amount of payroll that I owe every other week which helps me stay on track and eases up some of my frustrations crunching numbers and physically doing it myself. It literally does everything for you once you have the specific information entered, especially filing and organizing your payroll

Cons: It is priced a little bit more than similar programs but that is ok because I know for a fact with everything you ever buy that you will always get what you pay for. You want to be cheap, you get cheap software that you have to replace or winds up being junk, you want to spend a little extra your not paying out the butt later on new software.

Overall: Awesome software for keeping your payroll on point and it also allows employees, contractors etc etc to look at all their past payroll history any time they want. You can handle all kinds of situations with this software including notifications with money deposits, or if you need to turn in a time off notice you could do it through this software,

Pros: ease of use and the integration of third party services to enhance my HR and benefits for my employees.

Cons: Sometimes support takes a while to get to your issue. The notes field is very limited if you wish to do any detail. There is no way to withhold money from a check so it is documented.

Overall: compliant payroll services at an affordable rate.

Pros: Gusto is a perfect and easy to use payroll portal both for employer & employees. It has a self on boarding system, for employers to send new hires their offer letter and paper work through its portal. Employees can easily update their address, direct deposit info, withholding all in one place. Previous month¿s pay stubs can also be accessed easily. Employees can easily load W2 directly into turbo tax through its website. One can also keep track on the taxes paid. Gusto also offers detailed description and helpful tips of required information to be inputted. Its editing process is also very simple & straightforward when any changes need to be made to employee info or business features.

Cons: Gusto seems overwhelmed and unprepared for the renewal period. Also there is no invoice function, so contractors cannot submit an invoice and have their managers approve it. A separate system for contractors for invoicing needs to be maintained. Also Direct Deposit should be little faster. Customer service is also not that good.

Pros: The software is extremely user friendly. I run a small non-profit, and the online onboarding process for new employees has reduced my paperwork significantly. Employees can access their own accounts and make changes when needed. The reporting features work well and give me all of the information I need.

Cons: While the fees for processing payroll through Gusto are very competitive with other vendors, my organization could use a reduced pricing structure specifically for non-profits or based on size.

Overall: Reduced paperwork, greater efficiency, more transparency, and better reports

Pros: I like that I have a portal that I can log into and manage my requests for time off and see how much is available and do not have to rely on someone to keep track and tell me. Also that I have access to all my pay stubs. It makes it alot easier to manage.

Cons: I really wish that they had an application for my cell phone. It can get annoying having to click through to a website. Other than that the program is great!

Overall: Ease of use when needing to access your paystubs, paid time off, and other available benefits.

Pros: Honestly, I really like the magazine-esque approach to their design on the site and in emails. It's easy to find what I need (paystubs, etc) and I enjoy interacting with both because of the design. I like their "Hooray, you got paid" emails.

Cons: It's a small thing but, while, I appreciate the "you could've bought x" with your paycheck (usually silly things like "pounds of bananas") I feel like it kind of trivializes the effort that went into earning that income.

Cons: I wish this platform was a one stop shop that encompassed all my benefits. They are really good with paychecks, but I'm sure there is more I could be getting out of the system that I don't utilize.

Overall: It's a fun, easy to use system, but I depending on what we pay for it, I'm sure there is something we could replace and not be heavily affected.

Pros: Extremely friendly interface, that makes running payroll a breeze and somehow a bit enjoyable. Running reports, and providing access to employees is also very easy. Customer support is good.

Cons: We've had a couple issues in terms of misinformation coming from their team about start dates for employees switching . Customer service was friendly, but the misinformation created more work and stress, which took coordination on our front to work with them.

Cons: This isin't really a Con but since i've only been using it for a few years but I can't help but wonder if everything is getting done. Customer support reassures me that the IRS is getting my payments but they make everything soo easy it seems to good to be true!

Overall: An all in one solution for payroll has saved me time and an insane amount of money. I can't say enough about how excited I am that technology like this exists.

Pros: Gusto has a clean UI that is intuitive, attractive, and organizes/manages all of the HR/Payroll information needs of our company. I've only had positive experiences with on-boarding, benefits rollout, and payroll is not complicated.

Cons: I don't have any negative feedback for Gusto at this time - thankfully I haven't had any issues as of yet. (If I really had to reach I'd say that some of the "flourishes" and animations are a little extravagant, but I think its cute.)

Pros: Easy to keep track of current and previous paystubs. W-2's are also in that account as well. You can have your paycheck split to go into multiple accounts.

Cons: You have to wait until after your direct deposit has been added to your account to be able to view your paystub.

Pros: I like that it gives you an overall history of pay stubs and lets you download and print them out whenever you need to.

Cons: I wish it would be able to alert you of your upcoming pay stub. I know this is probably a little more difficult to accomplish, but it would be nice to be able to log in the day before and see what your check for tomorrow will be.

Overall: I'm able to take a look at my pay stubs in a way more convenient way than I was used to.

Pros: Gusto is so simple to use and leaves the onboarding up to your employees and contractors, which is a huge time-saver and eliminates the worry of entering in any data incorrectly. We have been using Gusto for almost 1.5 years and have never had any issues with processing problems or timely payments - in fact, they have jumped in to help us run payroll in a jam after missing the cut-off time (which is only 2 days within a certain amount of funds.)

Cons: The only real issue we have had is occasional notices from states that we have missed some payroll taxes - but Gusto customer support is extremely quick to respond and able to provide whatever documentation needed to dispute any errors on the state department side.

Gusto is extremely easy to implement and use, I would recommend to all companies.

Pros: I like how easy the interface is to navigate. The interface itself is very intuitive and It's very easy to request time off, whether it's sick time or PTO. I also like how it shows the rate at which your PTO is accrued, along with showing the user how many hours you have remaining for the year.

Cons: My least favorite aspect of Gusto is that there is no smart phone application. It's not difficult at all going to gusto.com on my phone, it actually works great. It would just be convenient if they had an app developed.

Pros: Hands down the feature we are most pleased with is the email portal. Every employee is able to login into their own personal page to obtain personal payroll information as well as make changes as needed. When you have 70 employees, it's one less thing that we have to worry about come payroll day. In addition to being able to pay taxes and e-file forms directly from the software, it is a must have for any medium to large business.

Cons: I can honestly say there is not a whole lot I would say we are displeased with when it come to this payroll software. We just switched from Quickbooks payroll, and are much happier with this program.

Overall: It makes payroll with a company as large as ours much easier. A number of features not offered with the Quickbooks payroll we were previously using.

Pros: From a user's perspective I loved Gusto, although my organization no longer uses it. Easy to navigate and pay stubs were a breeze to get ahold of. The emails notifying me that I had been paid were great and provided great visibility.

Cons: I was not personally involved in the decision to move away from Gusto, but apparently their weak spot was when it came to scaling for a larger organization. They were not the right fit as we moved above 50 employees. From the user's perspective though I had no complaints.

Overall: Easy to request time off, access pay stubs, receive notification I had been paid.

Other than minor bugs, I really can't come up with negative feedback. It's simply the best payroll system.

Overall: Efficient Payroll!

Pros: I like how easy it was to setup; the company does a great job of keeping the regulations and tax information current for all locations where we had employees

Cons: The pricing model is cumbersome. It's very valuable for a small team, but the pricing doesn't scale well, which I suppose is by design. HR software is not easily ripped/replaced.

Cons: It would be good if the payroll payment system is integrated at least 4 days before the payment date. The cost is a little high, although once you buy the software you can take advantage of it.

Overall: Really this software is very used and with good results in the company, we do not have to worry about how tedious it is for HR to pay the payments to the employees.

Pros: Gusto makes it easy and fun for small/growing businesses to track their paychecks. Coming from a larger company who used another system, it was really difficult to get any insight into my compensation. Gusto puts the employee in control by, for example, making it really straightforward to see past pay stubs or access insurance information.

Cons: I don't like receiving the payday email, as my paycheck dollar amount is displayed on a large screen for many people in my office to see. I wish it were easier to disable these notifications in settings or have the default setting hide this dollar amount.

Pros: Very easy to track my payments received from an employer I worked for as a contracted position. Additionally, it was easy to retrieve my tax information at the beginning of the year (1099).

Cons: What I didn't like about this software as a user was being unable to see the number of hours I worked. I could see my total amount paid, but it would have been nice to see the actual breakdown of my hours or at least even the days I worked. It would only show my paydate and amount paid. I guess this would be useful if you were being paid a lump sum amount for a service. I was trying to keep track of my days because I would need to indicate my mileage.

I love gusto makes getting paid so easy!

Pros: As a small business, payroll and employee management has always been one of those annoying aspects that comes with the territory. However, since switching over to Gusto, I know longer have to field requests for old paystubs, spend more than half an hour on payroll, and worry about deductions. And best of all, I can access it from anywhere, and it makes direct deposit setup for our employees so easy!

Cons: My only wish is for my integrations, and, unfortunately, some of the benefits packages that Gusto integrates seamlessly with aren't available in my state.

Overall: It makes managing payroll, deductions, and employee management much easier. And when we hire new team members, the onboarding process with Gusto couldn't make things simpler.

Cons: There's not a whole lot I don't like. So far everything has been positive. I am just a employee/user on the site though and have no knowledge about the cost, the back end, etc.

Pros: I think this program because you can see all of your information related to your paycheck. The program is very user-friendly and provides the most up-to-date information regarding payroll. I also like how it tells you how many years you've worked...in a different way.

Cons: I really don't have any thing to say about this. The program works for me and I am able to view my paychecks.

Pros: You can set up and schedule payments, and let the system handle the rest, it allows you to use any device, including mobile devices and the main benefit is the time you are saving.

Cons: I wish they could add the printing option and in regards time frame just have in mind you have to run your payroll 4 business days in advance.

Overall: As a small company, this software has been a very useful instrument in helping us stay in track with the payment task and it keeps all our employees needed information well stored and handy.

Gusto works very well for us. It is reliable and accurate.

Pros: So quick and easy to get up and running with payroll for a startup S-Corp. It's fun, modern, millenial interface makes it a delight to use.

Cons: It is easy to feel like you have crossed all your T's and dotted all your I's with the IRS by using this service - be warned - Gusto does not cover all that might need to be done for your taxes!

From the employee end, it does exactly what it needs to

Pros: Better organized, with a frankly more pleasant GUI than some of the competition I've used, everything I need seems to just be easier to find and more readily available than what I've used in the past.

Cons: The integration with W2 importing this year was a little glitchy with TurboTax, and the time off calendar selection is not as compatible with all systems, I've had some issues accessing it from the iPad, although my windows computer does fine with it.

Pros: I like Gusto's simple platform, easy to process payroll and never have to worry about filing tax forms and paying withholding taxes. If there is any penalty notice from IRS or state, I only need to scan the notice and send it to Gusto Helpdesk and they will take care of. Hassle free! The cost is reasonable.

Cons: Gusto has certain limitation in departmentalize employee when an employee's time is split between 2 or more departments, they won't be able to split the payroll costs between multiple departments. One employ can only be assigned to one department.

Overall: Never have to worry about deadlines!!

Pros: Gusto makes it very easy to track employee records and payments. My favorite thing about Gusto is that our employees can log in at any time to get their pay stubs, tax forms, and other items we've added. Gusto also sends great factoids based on an employee's pay that are fun.

Cons: Gusto lacks some integrations, but for the most part it is pretty solid. This is a software that doesn't have many cons.

Overall: Easy pay management for employees.

Pros: the most useful thing for me was that I did not have to resort to professional human resource services, it facilitates and saves a lot of time when managing the payroll corresponding to the workers. It is very practical and easy to use

Cons: It is very easy to use and its web design is very simple and practical. I do not have any criticism since I am very easy to manage the payroll, because in this respect it was what I managed the most and I am very much involved in that
