Care to compare?

Rippling scales with your business. Gusto doesn't.

While Gusto typically meets the needs of companies with less than 50 employees, customers find that it lacks the depth, breadth, and configurability for scaling businesses.

Full HCM suite (e.g. advanced workflows, learning mgmt, etc.)

Advanced permissions

Third-party app integrations
