"10 years - Still my favorite"
What do you like best about Gusto?
Gusto has truly streamlined our payroll process, with its straightforward system making running payroll and making corrections a hassle-free experience. The comprehensive reporting tools are user-friendly and offer a variety of options to access the exact information we need. Moreover, on the rare occasions when we've reached out for support, the team at Gusto has been not only knowledgeable but also extremely helpful. Their expertise and prompt assistance is much appreciated, and it's reassuring to know that such reliable support is just a call away.
What do you dislike about Gusto?
I'm missing the sweet spot in the pricing tiers. The Simple plan works almost perfectly for us. However, it only includes one PTO Policy. You can track sick but not vacation or you vacation but not sick. My employees get both and I would really like to be able to indepenantly track them both with their payroll. In order to track both through Gusto, I would need to move to the higher package which doubles the price. There are a lot of really nice features with the Plus Plan that would benefit most typical businesses. Unfortunately, my industry isn't typical so most of the added features either don't apply or are redundant when matched with our industry-specific scheduling software. I want one more feature but don't want to double my cost.
What problems is Gusto solving and how is that benefiting you?
Gusto's payroll functions are easy to administer - easy to see, to understand, to enter. Our employees love the app. I have yet to find an employee who could not access the app and handle their own banking, W-2, etc. (I can't say that about the other guy.) In almost 10 years, I have never had an employee not get their paycheck directly deposited into their bank account.

"Highly recommend Gusto - have used others in the past, Gusto is best in class!"
What do you like best about Gusto?
Gusto's exceptional customer service is the main reason I love them, but of course their offerings are important. They offer and execute with excellence on everything my business needs. Even during my leave of absence, I maintained my subscription, confident in their ability to handle everything seamlessly. Upon return, the service team's kindness and expertise reinforced my decision, making me feel supported every step of the way. I wholeheartedly recommend Gusto for their top-notch support and give them a solid 5-star rating. They've earned my trust and recommendation - I tell all my colleagues and business associates to use Gusto. I have used multiple other companies/competitors in the past and none of them are even close to as good as Gusto! It was easy to implement, has a lot of features that many different size businesses will need and doesn't require a lot of work/loggin in on our end.
What do you dislike about Gusto?
I honestly haven't found one yet, and this is the third company/vendor that we have used like this. My other two experiences were mediocre and terrible. I've had zero issues with Gusto, it is easy to use and the customer service is phenomenal.
What problems is Gusto solving and how is that benefiting you?
Gusto makes it super easy to onboard a new hire, stay complaint, get payroll run quickly as well as accurately, manage any state payments that need to go out without me having to calculate or think about any of it and keeps us compliant - what's not to love? It has solved many headaches for me and I never plan to leave - I recommend Gusto to everyone who asks about payroll or is setting up a new business.

"Easy to locate essential information"
What do you like best about Gusto?
Both the app and website interface have a dashboard that makes it easy to get the most important info each pay period: salary, vacation and sick leave used/balance, 401k contributions, etc. Simple, nice dashboard. Also makes it easy to get additional details.

Nothing. It's the only way to access payroll information at my organization.

"Gusto is our preferred payroll platform"
What do you like best about Gusto?
Gusto is simple to use for employees, which helps with early adaptation from the team during implementation. The interface for payroll processing is very intuitive and allows for updates while processing payroll. We suggest this platform over others because prior payroll updates are straightforward and don't create a web of payroll journals to sift through. The integration between Gusto and QBO is easily mapped and goes to job or class level, which is helpful.
What do you dislike about Gusto?
The tax team is hard to reach directly. I feel like if I could speak to them directly and quickly, we could easily resolve an issue that sometimes takes several emails for them to fully understand.
What problems is Gusto solving and how is that benefiting you?
Gusto creates an easy to use platform with great reporting features.
