    Pros

    - Great benefits - Clear an apparent advancement opportunities - Supportive leadership offering mentorship where appropriate - Flexible, understanding working environment - Clean modular codebase - Willingness to listen to newcomers' ideas

    Cons

    - Too much training - Not enough pressure to push yourself - Social events and startup attitude seem forced for such a large company - App development platform is very slow and cumbersome to use

    Advice to Management

    While I think they have created an excellent product and a great place to work, they are underutilizing their engineering staff. This obviously affects different people differently, but there is no real pressure to push yourself. Thsis is a severe mismanagment of the high-potential talent. At best, it leads to suboptimal performance; at worst, it leads to boredom and loss of talent. Also, the training is far too cushy and extensive. Research has demonstrated time and time again the superior effectiveness of on-the-job training, but Workday instead forces employees to attend

    Pros

    At Workday, you'll work with the best and the brightest. Everyday you get to be inspired by someone with whom you work, and you get to try things you've never done. Workday is a very flat organization, which means that your voice always matters. Workday is filled with people who are givers rather than takers, as the culture is built on collaboration rather than politics.

    Cons

    I've never worked as many hours as I work at Workday. The pace can either be invigorating or draining, depending on your personality.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, Workday's management seems terrific. It's great to have a visionary CEO, and to have people who really seem to care about the future of Workday as managers.

    Pros

    Very Experienced Senior Leadership Great Product Happy Customers Long Term Growth Opportunities The software is in very high demand, and there we are filling a need that is really only supplied by one company. The incumbent vendors are doomed (with perhaps the exception of SAP). Oracle will soon leave the ERP market, because no one will be buying on-premise ERP in 5 years. Tech comes and goes, and we are on the way in.

    Cons

    Growing pains associated with any hyper-growth company (i.e. processes are fluid and sometimes unclear)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. As long you continue to treat the front-line employee with respect and honesty, our future is extremely bright.

    Pros

    Smart, motivated, enthusiastic people and an overwhelmingly positive culture Leading edge technology Excellent business model Excellent sales pipeline Workday is a fast paced software company with vision and leadership. It is an excellent place to advance internally, and also excellent for a future resume since it has a reputation for hiring well, and uses leading edge technologies. People work together without the paralyzing politics found in so many corporations, because the management has made it so by having policies that reinforce and reward teamwork and innovation.

    Cons

    no cons. this is a great company.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing

    Innovative company with energized employees all working together to make the company succeed. Core values are refreshing.

    Success and growth keep company in a constant state of change. Not an environment that everyone is comfortable with.
