    Pros

    The core of Workday is collaboration not competition. Everyone is interested in seeing the company succeed and by extension seeing team members succeed. There isn't as much of a 'what's in it for me' mentality when approaching others for assistance.

    Cons

    Because the company is growing so quickly processes can sometimes lag behind the needs and it can be difficult to identify the proper resources.

    Advice to Management

    Would give you all 5s if there was 401k matching. That is the biggest drawback in the overall package.

    Pros

    The product is best-in-class and the rest of the landscape knows it. Most people who work here are genuinely good people who work hard but understand the need for work/life balance.

    Cons

    The rest of the market is spending a ton to catch up. This means lots of pressure to perform and some people "changing roles" when they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Don't compare our products to our competitor's and say "good enough" when we are better than the standard they have set. There are still a lot of improvements that can be made, and we need to continue to define the standard rather than just try and beat the status quo.

    Pros

    - Amazing challenges and huge opportunity to build solutions that scale.
    - Great management which has a vision and direction for the company
    - Work/Life balance is excellent; the company is very family focused.
    - If you're a high contributor, near unlimited potential for opportunities and promotions. Lots of opportunity to get promoted, or move to other teams.
    - Large deployment of scrum/agile has yielded a workplace with low interruptions and a high focus on delivering products.
    - Low politics for a company of this size
    - Pleasanton campus is really growing, up to 5 or 6 building at the time of this review. It's a great (physical location) place to work! We offer bikes to get around campus, and to the Stoneridge mall!

    Cons

    - Relationship focused, you really need to connect with others to make the most of your time working here. If you don't do well connecting with others or working in teams, your mileage may vary.
    - Parking on campus can be difficult, if you come in after 10am.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to invest in Employee programs; I personally love the Breakfast events that takes place every summer!
    - Continue to push a culture of low politics; it's working.

    Pros

    I am totally inspired by our co founders Dave and Aneel. They set the company culture and it's felt throughout every level of the organization. Not only that, the work is exceptionally interesting. The end goal is to make enterprise software that is engaging, easy, fun, and desirable to use. It's problem solving at its finest! Day to day, you get to work with other employees who have a passion for what they do. It makes it fun to come to work - you actually WANT to go to the office.

    Cons

    No cons that come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it!
