    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great product, well-managed at the higher levels, expanding, very positive and flexible work environment. Some of the best people you'll ever work with.

    Cons

    Infrequent raises, even for long-time employees. One or two departments treat their employees badly. And there really aren't enough bathrooms on each floor anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for employees to transfer internally. Other than that, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Community as a whole
    The work environment

    Cons

    Upper management seems to abuse their power a bit much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't believe that because you are in a higher position, you will receive everything your heart desires.

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working here is a great time. Lots of company parties, team outings, great culture and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not very competitive with pay, raises, RSU's, or bonuses. I've been here 2 years and I just received my first raise. It would have been a good first year raise, but after 2 years I was expecting much more. They also only give raises/promotions twice a year during performance reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better compensation

    I have been working at Workday as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    They supply housing and the pay is pretty good. Very good company to work for and they really invest in your development/ education as a software engineer.

    Cons

    It is a big company and sometimes you get lost in the shuffle or get bogged down in the corporate structure. They weren't extremely prepared for the fall interns with projects so there was some sitting around and waiting at times.

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    CEOs who believe in me and, unlike some others, are not weasels.
    Everyone here is really smart and motivated.
    Constant opportunities to innovate, as the kind of work we do has not been done before.
    Satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Not paid competitive to the market, but that is balanced by great stock options in my case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need some kind of sabbatical program for those of us who have been running at full speed for quite a while.
