    Pros

    -Friendly People
    -Fun Culture
    -Is growing rapidly
    -wants to get better
    - is killing the competition

    Cons

    People who have been in management since the company started aren't up-to-date with the consumer app quality that Workday is aspiring for. It really holds it down.
    Many of the new people hired come from places that Google and Facebook would not hire from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should be making offers to people from everyday brands to come in and help pick up some of the drag. Recruiting from similar companies to Workday will only bring the product down. Which I know Workday does not want.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Open to working from home and there are lots of employees who work remotely from home offices 100% of the time.
    Lots of employee "perks" and and fun contests.
    Promote healthy lifestyle with health club discounts, brown bag seminars etc…
    Product is great and getting even better.

    Cons

    1st/2nd level managers are still doing an individual contributor jobs and thus aren't effective leaders or communicators
    A lot of managers seem to be people who have just "been there a long time" not necessarily people who are true leaders. Manager Leadership training would be a huge help here.
    Career path isn't obvious nor discussed.
    PTO lags behind other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer training to your managers so they are more skilled at leading effectively.
