Pros

This company is going to make a lot of people very comfortable, the technology and innovation is literally bleeding edge, nice work-life balance

Cons

Limited equity-small pre IPO offers, very poor benefits, sub standard wages

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay raises are absolutely an imperative or you will begin to lose folks, also more shares would make a difference particularly for those who have been here for some time

    Pros

    Communication is free and open between different teams, which is comparable to the rest of the software industry. It's a very tight knit company despite its growing size. Has free bagels and coffee every morning. flexible work time.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively average.
    It's hard to advance within the company.
    Company location is not in the city.
    Innovation is treated with care, but it's necessary because it's offered as a service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great job, you have developed a sustainable company culture, as you establish workday as a reputable company, i think it's necessary to recruit more young people

    Work Here if You Crave Bad Management, No Career Path, and Low Salary

    Pros

    The product and development environment are definitely cool, and customers seem happy. Lots of very nice, humble people who could be working somewhere where they'd be better appreciated. Also, it's close to BART and a very nice mall, but you probably can't afford to shop there. Close to 680, but traffic noise makes being outside fairly unpleasant.

    Cons

    Hierarchical and inflexible. Middle managers from PeopleSoft appear threatened by any staff member who has better ideas for productivity improvements. Low pay compared to other Bay Area tech companies seems to be a PeopleSoft tradition. Take it or leave it. Only a few people really seem to work very hard. This was one of the oddest and most unpleasant work experiences I've had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment in which people can honestly say if they're happy with their manager. Ask people if they have ideas that could help their team. Pay people competitively. Reward good ideas. Stop with the cult and herd mentality. You don't deserve most of the good people you have, and there are some real losers in your management ranks.
