I have been working at Workday

Pros

There is a lot of room for career advancement and development
Very strong leadership
Recognition/Reward based on performance
Surrounded by talented people
A fun place to work with pool tournaments, wine tasting, and Friday get-togethers
Innovative, leading edge technology
Forward thinking company

Cons

While Workday can be "clique-y" if you're not an ex-PeopleSofter you can still get ahead in the company. I never worked at PeopleSoft, but have worked smart & hard at Workday and have been rewarded with promotions and the training I need to help make my career successful. They are investing and "taking a chance on me" and I am putting in all my effort to make it pay off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the momentum! Workday will be enormously successful.

    Don't work there unless you worked at PeopleSoft and/or don't have a life.

    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    The company is definitely in high-gear mode and I think it will be tremendously successful, if they can ramp up hiring and continue to execute well. The technology base is good, with caveats noted below.

    Cons

    The pace is relentless and the work not particularly interesting. Very political, and very much "The Ex-PeopleSoft We Hate Larry" club. The toolset is completely proprietary, and there is explicit lack of investment in the application development environment. Unfortunately, the mindset is "work harder, not smarter" and number of hours in the office (and nights and weekends) are an important metric for success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management is excellent -- I really do think that Dave and Aneel walk on water -- but middle management is poor. Need to reward creativity, not just drone-like groupthink. Good luck hiring/retaining once the economy turns around.
