I have been working at Workday

Pros

Workday is a great company, has a phenomenal product, and is for the most part very well managed. It also has very good values that it tries to embody in every aspect of their business and how they treat employees

Cons

The values I just mentioned don't seem to be equally carried out in every department.
The inside sales department is run in a fashion that doesn't represent the values the owners work so hard at implementing, which is a shame.
Also, there seems to be rampant nepotism going on.

    IPO

    Cons

    Interview process focuses on next steps after CSD, this rarely occurs
    Marketing takes all the credit for pipeline development which is very inaccurate
    Hit your goals quick or you're gone
    No true career path into outside sales
    "Fun" place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Workday is a talent management solution which allows top performers to excel in the organization. Maybe Workday should start using our own software to manage the sales group.
