I worked at Workday

Pros

Good potential for IPO, if you have the right manager it can be a great place to work

Cons

Toxic political environment, all the downsides of a large company crammed into a startup

Advice to Management

Don't pigeon hole people and learn to accept criticism freely

    Pros

    Great Software and very well designed.
    Great vision of the CEOs.
    Most customers are very happy and truly satisfied.

    Cons

    Difficulties to have internal mobilities
    Favoritism not based on achievement or performance
    Managers prioritize their own careers internally
    Overtime is the standard
    Rigid Processes : Even in emerging market it is not a Startup (as often said to explain the overtime requirement), you have very rigid internal processes that you must follow in every departments

    Advice to Management

    Workday Culture internally is not applyed everywhere and it is very armfull to people.
    Stop thinking you are a startup, Workday is 10 years now and need to think as a mature company with internal mobility and career path for all not only management.

    Continue to innovate and stay years ahead of the competition.
