Leadership Spotlight: Meet Jennifer

Ashley Jezek | May 20, 2022

After teaching for 10 years, Jennifer was looking for a career change. Her mother encouraged applying to work at Paycom. After learning more about us, she was glad to do so! Jennifer applied to all the positions she thought she’d be qualified for and ultimately landed in the Paycom Specialist Department. Now Jennifer is one of our managers of product management.

Here’s more about Jennifer’s Paycom journey, in her own words.

Describe what you do.

I get to solve problems and change the world! I do this with talented teams of product managers, developers, designers and quality assurance specialists. We all work together to continue to make our product the best in the market.

What’s your favorite thing about being in your department and/or role?

It’s a tie between having a direct impact on the lives of our users and working with a team to achieve a goal and presenting. I love to show off our hard work!

What advice would you give a new employee about being successful at Paycom?

There are things you can control, and one of them is your knowledge. Since this was my second career, a move was risky. That pressure drove me to learn, ask questions and say yes to opportunities that presented themselves. That drive has helped lead to all kinds of experiences.

What’s the one word you would use to describe Paycom and why?

Supportive. We all want to help — help clients, employees and each other. Support is just the next person away. All you have to do is ask!

What is your greatest accomplishment at Paycom?

Seeing others grow. I have had the chance to work with a lot of people at Paycom. When I see them get a promotion, lead a meeting or spearhead a project, there is a little cheerleader inside of me yelling, “Woohoo!” Having a role in their wins is my biggest accomplishment.

What makes you proud to work at Paycom?

Seeing this company grow and expand to what it is today and will be tomorrow. I get to be a part of and a reason for that growth.

What hobbies do you enjoy in your free time?

I like to kill plants (aka gardening). I also enjoy reading science fiction, watching documentaries and hanging out with my family.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Ice cream. Straight ice cream. Think of the variety! For breakfast, maybe a fruity flavor like strawberry. For lunch? Pecan. And for dinner, you could go heavier like chocolate and peanut butter followed by cookie dough for dessert.
