Pros

Started paying super competitively as of November 2013 due to the IPO. Management cares about you, and the work place is friendly. It has an upbeat college atmosphere where you're expected to be extremely social.

Cons

Some people spend all their time here. But that may be simply because they like it, not because they have to. People are often loud, joking, and jolly, which is mostly a pro but sometimes is distracting from work. You'll need some noise cancelling headphones if you want to concentrate.

Advice to Management

Help new hires understand what is expected of them.

    Pros

    Workday has innovative technology, highly intelligent and motivated co-workers and offers you the ability to manage your work arrangement for flexibility and balance. We work hard and achieve excellent results.

    Cons

    Workday is still a young company and suffers from immature corporate processes. For those who work outside of the Pleasanton corporate offices, communication can be blurred and opportunities are not as clear. In addition, unclear career paths seem to be the norm.

    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 Management

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