I have been working at Workday full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

At Workday, you'll work with the best and the brightest. Everyday you get to be inspired by someone with whom you work, and you get to try things you've never done. Workday is a very flat organization, which means that your voice always matters. Workday is filled with people who are givers rather than takers, as the culture is built on collaboration rather than politics.

Cons

I've never worked as many hours as I work at Workday. The pace can either be invigorating or draining, depending on your personality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the most part, Workday's management seems terrific. It's great to have a visionary CEO, and to have people who really seem to care about the future of Workday as managers.

    I have been working at Workday full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is growing fast and gaining market share. Good ride while the other ERP companies struggle to get in the cloud.

    Cons

    Very cliquey, and if you are not Peoplesoft alumni, your career options are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and utilize experience of employees who have other than Peoplesoft backgrounds. Give the over 30 yo new hires as warm a welcome as the new college graduate kids.

    Great learning experience; Politics are subtle but dangerous

    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.
