    Pros

    Great product, well-managed at the higher levels, expanding, very positive and flexible work environment. Some of the best people you'll ever work with.

    Cons

    Infrequent raises, even for long-time employees. One or two departments treat their employees badly. And there really aren't enough bathrooms on each floor anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for employees to transfer internally. Other than that, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    The culture is amazing. Everyone really loves being here, loves each other, or (usually) both. Lots of company sponsored activities which make every week exciting. Management cares about you. You become inspired to work harder. Good pay, free housing (for interns and some positions).

    Cons

    Not many training courses offered for those that like learning from courses. Lots of people still stay after 5, so there is pressure to work longer hours. At times, hard to concentrate because people are always talking and laughing with each other, but a good pair of headphones will help.

    Pros

    Decent pay.
    Some departments seemed good to work for still when I left.

    Cons

    Lies from management.
    Backstabbing to gain rank.
    Sexual harassment towards females at least in my department. (yes a compliant was given to HR. But even the people I know saw it didn't want to get involved)
    The company moto is 'Workday and nights' definitely true if you want to get ahead. Don't expect a family life.

    Advice to Management

    Examam your new management. It's about how can I rise though the ranks. Not about employees. You want to be be the best place to work. Stop asking us to lie on the public servey. They give 2 surveys. One for the public. The other for the truth that management sees. And ignores it seems.

    Upper management seems to abuse their power a bit much.

    Pros

    The Generation Workday program does a good job of bringing in top talent and grooming them to be the future faces of the company. For what I do at the company, I found the pay to be great, coming out of school. The company is growing, so they are adding benefits all the time. Nice free gym membership.

    Cons

    In certain roles, you can be stretched thin a times. Workday emphasizes fun and friendship as being important to the overall culture, but It can be more attainable to some than others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees and paving the way for great enterprise SaaS!

    Pros

    Great product and huge market momentum. Very strong position in the market and working on converting from legacy systems.

    Cons

    Extremely political leadership that takes care of the inside crew and doesn't care about the rest. The top makes all the money.
