What is paid time off like at Workday?

Pros

They will pay you to complete a lot of training. The PTO and benefits are good.

Cons

At present my group does not have a lot of clients. There is very little diversity in the group I am in which is a surprise since other groups are very diverse. Finding someone to help with a question is difficult which I have read from others on this site.

The PTO and benefits are good.

Does Workday offer dental insurance?

Pros

Free snacks, good dental and medical benefits. Can bring pets (dogs) to work. The product is amazing and the vision of the company is good but there are many bad managers and there is no formal 360 feedback to control their performance. Workday has a great product and leadership has a great vision, but sadly it is losing great talent because of the toxic work culture created by new managers in the middle management.

Cons

The culture of the company is deteriorating. There are too many managers but less individual contributors, so the individual contributors get buried with workload. While the new managers are busy playing politics to secure their positions. The managers throw their direct reports under the bus to score points with internal clients and upper management. The worker bees feel dissatisfied, undervalued and disrespected. As a result the attrition rate is very high and something needs to be done to change the culture.

Advice to Management

Investigate why the attrition rate is so high and you will be surprised to note that the middle management does not adhere to Workday values. There are too many incompetent managers and less individual contributors. Hire and promote honest managers who would care about their direct reports well being. Get 360 feedback for all the managers in the middle management and act on it. The work culture is very toxic and affects the well being of the company. Please take the surveys seriously.

Free snacks, good dental and medical benefits.
