    Pros

    the people, work culture, and the way we get to go about our tasks every day. There is team objective to meet goals and accomplish them without unnecessary stress

    SAAS model that is built very similar to internet companies with many cycles of development, company is growing fast and they will need to adjust for that

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, the flat hierarchy creates a great work environment. I've thoroughly my time at workday and proud to have worked here

    Outstanding Product
    Customer and Employee Friendly
    Challenging Work
    Great colleagues and Teamwork

    Cons

    Growing super fast so need to be ready for change. Not sure this is a con but have to be ready to keep up.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move into other positions within Workday. Since this is a fast growing company, many positions open up every year.

    Cons

    With change comes movement of leaders within the company. So, who your manager is this year may not be the same person next year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote within and give opportunity to others that exceed expectations

    Pros

    In 1 sentence, WAS AWESOME
    I was in app dev, after 6 week training, took on cases just like full time employees - so I wasn't just doing tedious work or anything, got to DO what a full time employee did everyday.
    housing included
    competitive wage

    Cons

    no cafeteria (but there's food nearby)
    no gym (but who uses company gyms anyways)

  9. Great place to work with opportunities for upward mobility.

    Amazing culture and people. Very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Benefits and pay not as good as other big tech companies but that will most likely change in the following years.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Just need to keep increasing employee benefits.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance
    Management Actually Cares About the Welfare of Employees
    THE PEOPLE!!

    Cons

    Fast Growth means that not all programs are rounded out yet. Some basic learning experiences for the company can be tough to work through as the company continues to expand so rapidly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Culture!!!

    Pros

    Good leadership, work-life balance, team spirit. Everyone I've met and worked with has been extremely nice and helpful. You'll meet people you want to be friends with outside of work.

    Cons

    The company is really well run so there aren't too many cons. Lacks certain benefits such as 401k matching but believe that will happen in the future as many benefits have been added since I started working there.

    Advice to Management

    Have more conversations for career development
