Overall Satisfaction with Gusto

We at Arcadio Consulting use Gusto to do payroll for our own company and clients. But unfortunately, payroll involves a complicated set of tasks. That's when Gusto comes into play. Gusto is a fantastic payroll tool that helps you automate payroll tasks for both employees and contractors, no matter how hard or complex. In addition, it makes the onboarding process easy and enables you to avoid any errors. Finally, its user-friendly approach to setting up payroll is the tool anyone would enjoy using.
  • Easy onboarding process
  • Clear and accurate tax reports
  • Running payroll is pretty straightforward. It is easy to pay employees and contractors.
  • Gusto's support department is super bad, very slow, and hard to reach. In my opinion, I'm better off with the help center.
  • There is not an easy termination process. Accountant firms are too controlled and can't do much when suspending a payroll account.
  • Dashboard messages are a pain in the neck; even though the feature isn't supposed to be on, it still reminds you about it. So, for example, when a client doesn't need worker's compensation insurance because of state law, the dashboard messages still remind you to add the insurance information.
  • Onboarding process
  • Payroll management
  • Pay calculation report detailed
  • Gusto has simplified our payroll tasks.
  • Gusto is affordable and is user-friendly for small businesses.
  • Gusto provide integration with accounting software such as QuickBooks and Xero.

I recommend Gusto for small businesses for its user-friendly approach. In addition, Gusto is suitable for multiple state payroll and onboarding processes. I have never used the HR or the benefits system, so I can't comment on that. I mainly use the cheaper level because my clients usually have 1 or 2 employees or contractors, and I don't need a one-day direct deposit or time tracking.
