I think if you are a small business, with anywhere from 0-50 employees, Gusto is a good choice. If you start getting bigger than that, it might not be the right tool. To me, it feels best suited for that range of employees. It isn't that it couldn't work with more, I just don't know that I feel like that is who it was made for.

I love it for health care. It does everything we need including auto pay, auto deductions, API's to incorporate with other software, and I can always find the info I need. If you're a super large company (big box store, major chain), you probably need more than Viventium can do. But I haven't run into a single thing yet that we need it to do that it can't. And since we've been with them, they've added new features so they're always improving it.

Pros
Gusto
  • The punch clock is no-nonsense, very simple, and has all of the relevant information displayed in an easy-to-read layout that doesn't overwhelm the viewer.
  • Overall, the user interface for every page is extremely intuitive. I have had no issues finding or making changes to any information I'd need to access.

Cons
Gusto
  • Have an "auto breaks" option to make it easier to add break times (e.g., "30-minute lunch break") to the schedule when inputting hours.
  • Ability to revise pre-existed time off requests (of course, would still need updated approval) instead of having to delete the request/start over entirely (e.g., if the time off request extends from 1 to 2 hours).

Unless they break it, I'm never leaving. It's just too easy. Gusto is also really affordable, and for what I pay, it's worth having the historical record within the system. I like that I can go back and pull up W2's for year's past. This sort of easy access reporting, has been helpful especially when getting reports for PPP loans.

Usability
Gusto
I gave Gusto this rating because overall, it is an excellent, versatile program that allows for optimal success and encourages productivity as a whole. In terms of tracking pay and monitoring a person's spending habits (consumer insights), it is spot on for that. However, one feature that it lacks and needs to improve is the benefits package, which is not really good for me. It provides me with next to nothing in terms of benefits. The only benefit it gives me is prescriptions, which is pretty much it. I enjoy the ability to clock time in and out while working remotely. I also like the organization feature of seeing all the coworkers working in your company, which is great because it allows for me to get to know everyone's name.

Gusto's customer service has really deteriorated lately and they seem to have really changed their focus. It used to be when you called you were routed to an individual who knew about payroll, benefits, reporting, etc. but now you get someone who seems to have not received the correct training. My last call about a dismissal payroll took me over an hour of my time and the person still could not help me and finally transferred me to someone else.

Gusto has a glitch-free on-boarding process that surpasses all of the other systems that I have ever tried and used. Rippling is the only other platform that comes close to the Gusto online experience, but Rippling has its PEO/behind-the-scenes legacy system glitches, and it's not nearly as user friendly as Gusto. Gusto's reports are THE best compared with all the other platforms that I have tried.

After 2 weeks of one-on-one phone calls with my "trainer" from ADP, I ran my first payroll by myself. They called me the next day and asked if I needed help and I said I THOUGHT I had done it ok. The trainer was floored. He actually said to me "NOBODY is ever able to run their first payroll on their own!" Doesn't that just say it all??? It was SO confusing. There was so much to navigate around and things that I did not understand. With Vivenium, they did a 60 minute walk through on video with me and I was ready to go. I had questions after that as I hit unique situations, but I had someone to call and email and I always got my questions answered. They would fix the issue for me AND tell me how to do it myself so that I could learn for the next time.

Return on Investment
Gusto
  • After a recent glitch with the payroll processing system, employees were forced to accept paper checks for a few weeks while Gusto's technical support team figured out the problem. This led to some employees being forced to miss work and lose money while having to deal with an antiquated paper check process.
