Does Workday offer massages?

Pros

Good salary and benefits, good culture and values, friendly management, nice and relaxed environment (including free foods and drinks), excellent work/life balance.

Cons

Proprietary technologies used to develop "the" application does not look as a good choice. Implications are in fact multiple, including the risk for developers to loose their skills about not only common programming languages, but also the entire ecosystem related to them. So not just a proprietary language but even the entire ecosystem. Developers cannot resell outside skills acquired.

Advice to Management

When you hire new application developers, make sure they have got a clear idea on what the job will consist. I would still recommend Workday to some friends of mine, but not to all the friends of mine. Skills and expectations play a fundamental role in what you get when hire someone especially for something like the application development.

Good salary and benefits, good culture and values, friendly management, nice and relaxed environment (including free foods and drinks), excellent work/life balance.

Does Workday offer dental insurance?

Pros

- Unlimited PTO, recently expanded parental leave - Good healthcare, vision, and dental benefits.

Cons

- Mandatory "diversity" training is basically pushing a political agenda. If you want to say "mother" instead of "birthing person" like they want you to, that's a conversation with your manager for not being "inclusive". Yikes. - Seasoned people are leaving and management doesn't even try to hold onto them. Ironic, because they were the ones preserving Workday culture. In my first week my manager who had been at the company for 5 years left and I had nothing to do for months as my new manager dealt with the consequences. - Strict no full-remote work policy. Doesn't make any sense either since many teams are distributed and meeting over Zoom anyways.

Advice to Management

Fix Workday culture. Hold onto people who actually embody your culture and not just cave to external pressure.

Good healthcare, vision, and dental benefits.

Does Workday offer family leave?

Pros

- compensation is good compared to partners - healthcare benefits ($0 per pay check if single and large portion of deductible put on FSA/HSA card every year) - unlimited PTO; haven’t ever “asked” manager to take time off - professional services (consulting) bonuses 20% of base pay based on utilization - no formal performance reviews

Cons

- some projects expect you to be available 24/7 and on call - working with lots of different time zones, can have multiple meetings a week after 5PM - PTO impacts utilization > impacts bonuses; leadership always wants people 100% utilized - pipeline of new work seems to be slowing down, this means you can be on 5-6 clients at one time with a few hours each week for them (but they all think they are #1 priority) - RSUs don’t vest during maternity leave - maternity leave not 100% paid for entire time (portion of it is 70%)

maternity leave not 100% paid for entire time (portion of it is 70%)
