Are you ex-PeopleSoft, like to work long hours and weekends?

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Workday

ProsGreat product and a lot of great people who are excited about making an impact in HCM, Payroll, and Financials space. Dave and Aneel are good leaders and have the respect of employees. Everyone works hard to make an impact and wants to make customers successful and referenceable.

ConsAgree with other comments that it is political and if you do not have the "right" manager, the hard work and sacrifice will often go unnoticed; managers constantly managing upwards and have often times used employees as scapegoats. Lot's of VP's (see website) add to the bureaucracy; lots of overhead. Many upper/middle management are ex-PeopleSoft which makes it very cliquey. Process is still very old ERP/PeopleSoft oriented; re-creating the wheel in a lot of ways.Should incorporate more people from other/diverse backgrounds with new ideas and listen to employees with new or challenging ideas.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire talent outside the PeopleSoft ecosystem. Do not make this PeopleSoft 2.0. Ensure middle/upper management take care of the employees and provide the appropriate support to their and foster new ideas and risk taking. Reward the long days, nights and weekends, and sacrifice of family.

I have been working at Workday


Pros: Workday has restored my belief that corporate America can provide jobs that are fun, rewarding and challenging.
