    Pros

    Technology is the best I have ever sold...WDAY backs up innovation, support, customer stories claims..they are real

    Cons

    Sales alignment, transitioning from those who benefited from the IPO to those who are new.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how you are engaging new employees, especially those who were not Employe #???..Not sure why everyone who was part of the IPO needs to tell me what number employee number they were.

    Pros

    Workday is a fun company that means business! We know how to make getting it done satisfying for both employees and customers which means that we have a lot of happy employees and customers. Workday has a workforce that is diverse and well rounded, and I believe that this shows in its products!

    Cons

    Workday needs to invest in better chairs. We sit in those things for the majority of our waking hours, they need to be comfortable and ergonomic, and are worth an investment.

    Advice to Management

    place an appropriate value on facilities rather than pinching pennies there.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Provide better compensation
