Parting advice from my former coach, “never do payroll”

Im financials as well, but payroll sounds awful lol do you actually want to do it?

Payroll can be standalone, but don't do it. Fins is worth more right now and less demanding.

It used to be, but you can just do Payroll on its own now.

HCM isn’t a prerequisite, but it is highly recommended. You’ll struggle to pay workers when you aren’t aligned to understand worker data in Workday.

Thanks for the advice everyone. Wasn’t very keen on Payroll initially but now I’m definitely avoiding it.

Honestly, payroll is not bad. Hours at times can be tough but outside of parallel/go-live it’s fine. Also super in demand so you are always billable.

A1 - it depends greatly on calculation, tax, GL, integration complexity, data integrity, size, whether or not you’ve actually implemented what they need before (after 10 years, each new client I’ve had has had a requirement I had no clue about). It’s hard to generalize, but in general if you have an enterprise sized client over 20k employees in multiple states you are definitely getting recked.

Prepare to get recked in payroll.

If I end up doing Payroll, I would be placed on an internal workday implementation for a company that has 300k+ employees. From what I hear, our internal project is already a circus and not where you want to be

Yeah I always have plan B going and am ready to abort any project I’m on. It’s a must in payroll because things can go haywire at the drop of a dime. Especially if you’re working with ADP.
