Overall Satisfaction with Gusto

Onboarding and Payroll Gusto makes both very easy!
  • Onboarding is super easy for me and my employees.
  • Payroll is easy to enter.
  • Customer service is very quick and friendly.
  • Recently, they have let the ball drop a bit with submitting some state forms on time.
  • Other than this recent issues with timely forms, they have been great!
  • Payroll
  • Onboarding
  • Customer Service
  • Gusto's rates are very reasonable
  • I don't need to have another company for onboarding, which saves money
ADP is more expensive, is more difficult to use, and does not have as good of customer service

Do you think Gusto delivers good value for the price?

Did Gusto live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Gusto go as expected?


Would you buy Gusto again?


Our day-to-day needs are met with ease. Our employees are able to onboard super quickly and easily, and their pay is consistently delivered. On my end, entering my employee's work times is quick and painless. The fact that Gusto runs in the background with very little thought on my end (other than the recent issue with submitting some state forms in a timely manner), is a testament to how well they do.

Using Gusto

1 - Gusto is very easy to use. Anyone you assign should do well.
Gusto is easy to use and customer service is fast and friendly. My one hesitation for marking it 10 is the recent increase in cost if your business has employees in more than one state.

Quick Initial Response
No. The basic support works well for me.
Last year, I ran a payroll with errors (totally our fault - not Gusto's). Gusto was super quick to respond, letting me know how to reverse the payroll, so I could make corrections and rerun it. It was such a relief to not only have a way to correct it but also to have an answer quickly, so I didn't spend much time stressing about what to do.
