    Pros

    Great culture, support and some of the best people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Sales success can be difficult and requires a strong focus and commitment. Can take over a year to make your first sale due to long sales cycles...

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

    Pros

    Great lifestyle. Get to learn a lot about the company and even as an entry position you are given respect. Lots of new and interesting technology to learn. Steep learning curve, but once you get over that hump it becomes easier to make new applications. Overall a great company to work. The company has lots of perks and great team outings. The company tries to keep a happy and very comfortable atmosphere.

    Cons

    The technology used puts current employees into a pigeon hole. Software engineers are using a proprietary coding language that is developed by Workday. Everything is done in two specific graph like languages. If you stay to long in the company your coding skills will get dull. Workday puts their employees in a comfort zone that can be good for some but bad for others trying to increase their knowledge in the coding and tech world. My advice would be that if you join Workday's apps team, experience it for a year and either transfer to another group or look for something more challenging elsewhere. Many will say there is no company politics but from my personal experience there is quite a bit. The company portrays this image of happy and everything is great but that creates more of a frustration for others, because instead of saying the problem out front issues and discomforts just get bottled up. Lastly the company encourages employees to seek out different groups within the company but unfortunately since each team I have seen has such limited resources that it can take up to 2 years before any kind of talk about moving occurs.

    Advice to Management

    Make moving around and exploring different groups more accessible. Holding your engineers and not letting them explore will just make them want to do the opposite. Don't say that exploring opportunities is possible and not let the engineer move and waste more time if they are not interested in the group anymore.

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

    Pros

    Good internal communication and collaboration, great learning and growth opportunities and really caring about the employee career. Very solid top management leading by examples on the values of innovation, honest and transparent communication and performance.

    Cons

    Difficult to find significant cons in this place, I would say that true customer centric companies mean that the prospect and customer expectations are very hard and this means lots of good work and sometimes long hours!

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

    Pros

    Free snacks, pretty chill atmosphere for the most part. Company is in a really good spot above the competition

    Cons

    When you start they make you do this GW program and treat you like a child. You have to be there 8-5 and they don't give you any work to do. In the services side of the business, it's really hard to move offices is internally

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the GW program. It just lowers the status of every young employee and makes them lower their own expectations, and thus do less work.
