Is Payroll a good career ladder ?

Is that dept function part of HR ?

Is it considered the first to cut when business is down since it is a ‘cost’ function.

from my experience payroll gets handled by very few in a company and then gets farmed out to companies like adp ... the company i work for has 1 payroll person who just uploads and checks the time clock data for 350 employees .

Is this a serious question? How large/deep have your employers' payroll offices been OP?

Unless you were really attempting to ask whether the payroll services industry might offer good opportunities.

Why do you have to be so nasty? I get so sick of nasty people on this site.

OP, for what it's worth, at my former company, payroll was a function of accounting, not HR. The manager did not make much money.

OP has a history of asking questions without any sort of background information such as why they were asking that question or how it applies to them. I have a feeling OP is just bored.

Ours is split up. The actual process of calculating the pay, benefits, taxes, retirement and 401K is up to the payroll people in the Accounting department. The responsibility of determining salaries, processing increases, benefit changes, and performance monitoring
is done by HR. In both cases this is an essential function, and whether there are 2,000 employees or 1,500 due to massive layoffs the same people are needed to process payroll.
