I have been working at Workday full-time for less than a year
I would say the best part about Workday is the culture and the people. Although it has only been a few months since I started working here, I have already experienced a lot of fun moments with my... Workmates and a few accomplishments as the cherry on top. Fun is always encouraged, there is no micromanagement and I personally was given complete freedom and control over my work, projects and tasks. Great opportunities for career progression, training for software and tools and mentorship programs. When I share my experiences with friends and peers in the tech industry they can even get jealous at times.
Like any company growing at this speed, change is constantly happening. I personally like it, so not really a con for me but it could be a con for some people depending on their character.
I... would've loved if the cloud cafe was fully subsidized but not really that important of a detail.
No other cons come to mind.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing. Do not let anything change the culture of the company. I love every moment at Workday and my Workmates!
I have been working at Elementum full-time for more than 3 years
Very good benefit, competitive salary, lots of extra perks and yes our lunches are really amazing.
Managment takes too long to let under performing employees go. I hope they change that behavior immediately. Here is an example: We had a very weak People Success team for a long time who hired... really badly, and as a result of their poor hiring, lots of tier C and D employees were working at Elementum in the past year. I remember having several conversations during our lunches with many of my teammates to find out that lots of them never kept their jobs for more than 1 year. Now, I see many complainers giving Elementum bad reviews but in reality, those former teammates who are writing the vast majority of these past reviews needs to digest that most of you were performing bellow average and that is probably the main reason why most of you are no longer working with at Elementum. Plain and simple.
Advice to Management
Keep being honest with us, I enjoy the return of our weekly all hands meetings where all the Upper Managment team have been consistently transparent about our goals, product, sales, finance and other... interesting topics. Yes we had some layoff but so does other companies in Silicon Valley. The vast majority of people who stayed are happy, very productive and still believe in our mission.
I hope our CEO do not get distracted with these hateful reviews from people who don’t even work at Elementum anymore. Until last year his approval rate was 98%. Honestly, I don’t think he had changed much. These waves of bad review definitely does not reflect the CEO true leadership and company’s reality
