I worked at Workday full-time (more than an year)

Pros

A lot of good people (although most have left)
Fairly good product

Cons

Senior Management is Machiavellian
No upward growth
"In crowd" atmosphere
Innovation is discouraged
If you get on the wrong side of Snr Management, you are put on "special project"
IPO won't get their emps anything. C'mon guys, $250m raised in VC funding?! You will be left with a crap job and no upward mobility

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too bad money can't buy you character and integrity

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    We are building apps in the 21st century and as such want new fresh ideas. We hire smart people who have experience but can take a fresh approach - this is key to our success. The product requires collaboration across the entire company.

    Cons

    We are still in the growth mode and the work - life balance is not there yet, but it is getting better.

    Pros

    Great Technology
    Great Vision
    Fun People to work with
    Strive to do your best

    Cons

    Inexperience Management
    Decisions come from one person with little room for feedback
    No Career Path - after entry level - you are stuck in a path to no where
    Internal fighting between development (engineering) and product management (business)
    Everyone reports to one person -- that one person has no time to talk and eventually ignores you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you plan to keep good people and be the BEST, then you need to start to clean house from the TOP... the people you promote to management aren't really good managers -- You provide HR applications... it's about time you develop your own HR team and create solid careers paths in development and in other areas... right now, for example, your financial development team is headed by one person and everyone reports to one person... no growth for anyone on the team -- that one person has absolute control... not the best way to run your engineering team.
