I worked at Workday full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

* Fabulous technology
* Experienced leaders
* Great potential for growth and world domination

Cons

* Political scene among leadership is subtle, but when the big dogs don't like something/one, watch out
* Coworkers are not as helpful to each other as I expected them to be / they describe in their culture
* They underpay in salary (but it's made up in stock)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in some training to managers. Discourage "territory building" amongst higher level VPs. Compensate people in salary at market rates please.

    Great place to get suckered into with empty promises

    Pros

    Workday has generally a great product and innovative technology. They are on course to become market leaders in a very competitive space with room for growth and expansion. There are some good coworkers to be had with lots of industry and technology experience. Good place to grow your career and explore (especially for younger new grads).

    Cons

    Pay is horrifically below industry standards (especially for the Bay Area). Even being here for over a year, the promise of a pay raise is just a dream that's teased by upper management and HR (many people can attest and have left because of this). Even post-IPO, many people had hoped that pay raises and compensation normalization would come quickly, as of this writing, this has yet to come. Like many reviews here, unless you were here in the early days, you will not be cashing out a ton of money from the IPO.

    There are 'in' crowds and 'out' crowds, your experience here will vary by which crowd you get into.

    The 'best company in the bay area' claim is such a joke. The bagels (which you get sick of), free fruit (which only come 2x a week) do not offset the bad company benefits, lack of any other relevant 'extras', lack of bonuses, promotion, etc. The claims in that 'award' is a lie and is clearly a bribe from HR to boost applicant volume.

    If you're considering a career at Workday, proceed with caution and come in with very low expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop kidding yourselves and listen to employee's plights if you really do 'care'

    Pros

    Great product and technology - development team at corporate was a blast.

    Cons

    Very micromanaged and cheap. Travel dollars are watched closely. Plan to stay in lower end hotels and book cheap flights.
