I am looking for recommendations for a cost-effective employee payroll and benefits provider for my start-up. TriNet is an option but would like some feedback on anyone using them and suggestions for other providers.  Thanks!

Gusto.com (formerly Zenpayroll) is perfect for startups. Excellent customer service and great product.

My previous startup used Zenefits and it was horrible.  We just switched to TriNet and they seem much better. At minimum, they have better and lower cost options for health insurance.

Betty I've used TriNet. They are really good and somewhat startup friendly. They also have good benefits packages to choose from for healthcare. Brett Sent from my iPhone

Using Gusto now and seems simple & like the UI so far. Using Trinet for several startups I have been an investor or advisor and very good solution as companies have scaled from few founders to one that had IPO in 2014.

I have used Nebs Payweb - very low cost through Costco and very good customer service.

I just switched from Compupay (Benefit Mall) to Paylocity for payroll and HR functions but I still use a broker for my healthcare benefits & FSA; I know there is a module to administer the benefits in Paylocity but I do not believe they are a benefit provider. If I wasn't attached to my broker I would have probably gone with Zenefits as the payroll part is free from what I remember.
