    Overall, great product and excellent senior management; Beware, toxic CSD environment.

    I worked at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great senior leadership, fun company events. All employees are invited to company meetings. Workday is leading provider of ERP in the cloud, stock is performing well, keep it up.

    Cons

    Many of the old reviews regarding the CSD environment from 2012 remain true well past their date.
    Senior management may not have any idea how bad it really became, or just didn't care;
    bait and switch. Limited career advancement from CSD, most after their CSD tenure end up in positions filled with recent graduates. Some have made it into very interesting roles, the majority went into other support roles not related to prospecting for new customers. Long story short: Your CSD skills have little value in other areas of the company. (Not worth it for all the grunt work that you're enslaved to do.) Especially if you have to do it in SLC.

    If you're interested in 2+ years of cold calling, only to find yourself rotating around to a somewhat related support role, be my guest. If you're passionate about sales, and you want a much more linear and logical career path, salesforce.com might be a better choice.

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

    Pros

    CEOs who believe in me and, unlike some others, are not weasels.
    Everyone here is really smart and motivated.
    Constant opportunities to innovate, as the kind of work we do has not been done before.
    Satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Not paid competitive to the market, but that is balanced by great stock options in my case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need some kind of sabbatical program for those of us who have been running at full speed for quite a while.
