    I have been working at Workday full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is great especially variable compensation. Company leadership is great. They are real people who understand and care about their employees. Endless opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging as with any hyper growth company. Another factor that likely comes into play is that each employee is a stockholder which means that they can perhaps be squeezed especially since the stock matures over 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!!!

    Pros

    Workday has innovative technology, highly intelligent and motivated co-workers and offers you the ability to manage your work arrangement for flexibility and balance. We work hard and achieve excellent results.

    Cons

    Workday is still a young company and suffers from immature corporate processes. For those who work outside of the Pleasanton corporate offices, communication can be blurred and opportunities are not as clear. In addition, unclear career paths seem to be the norm.

    I have been working at Workday full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Started paying super competitively as of November 2013 due to the IPO. Management cares about you, and the work place is friendly. It has an upbeat college atmosphere where you're expected to be extremely social.

    Cons

    Some people spend all their time here. But that may be simply because they like it, not because they have to. People are often loud, joking, and jolly, which is mostly a pro but sometimes is distracting from work. You'll need some noise cancelling headphones if you want to concentrate.

    Advice to Management

    Help new hires understand what is expected of them.

    I have been working at Workday full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Workday has been on a growth trajectory but has not changed in its basic outlook towards employees and customers. It's a fun place to work, where you get opportunities to work on exciting new projects. Work life balance is great - there may be some ups and downs in terms of work load, but overall a good balance is maintained. Management is very supportive and encourages innovative thinking. Decisions are made fast and emphasis is on trying, starting small and getting things done.

    Cons

    Can't think of any.

    Pros

    Training here is long but very helpful to get you situated, flexibility in schedule, smart and amazing people to work with and everyone you see is excited to be at work.

    Cons

    For App Developers you need to keep other programming languages in your back pocket because you won't get to practice them here

    Pros

    You know what you are working will have a large contribution to the company and to the overall benefit of our customers. With the new continuous development model we see our impact in as little as 2 weeks from when we developed it.

    Cons

    The company is growing so quickly and we are constantly trying to make our products better so sometimes the technology might change faster than we know how to adapt to it.
