I worked at Workday as an intern for less than a year

Pros

There is a good reason Workday is voted the best company to work for in the Bay Area. The culture there makes working a great pleasure. Everyone is friendly and willing to help. Employees are fun and intelligent people. Additionally, they are doing some really cool work in the cloud. Great exposure for developers.

Cons

Working in Pleasanton is not exactly like working in SF.

    Pros

    Workday is truly re-inventing how ERP systems work. Having been in ERP for 10 years, there is the opportunity to make business processes more efficient utilizing object modeling. That coupled with being SAAS makes for some interesting work.

    Workday is really telecommuter friendly; they don't care where you work as long as you are available and you meet your deadlines.

    I do believe the founders of the company want people to enjoy where they work. Lots of company events, a couple of game rooms, and people joking around make for a good environment even with the high workload. (The CEO does expect you to work). Certain departments are more stressful than others.

    Cons

    Health care and 401K options are disappointing; I've had better at other companies this size. Also the corporate culture can wear on you over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-examine the health care benefits. I feel strongly that we are not getting the best value for what we pay.
