    Pros

    - Access to core and practical Workday training in addition to any other relevant Workday courses - Not much structure, so employees are able to create a culture/environment that best suits them - Dedicated hub offices make it possible to have a collaborative environment - Great, tangible opportunity to move up for those who are motivated and willing to work hard - Leadership fairly transparent when it comes to... company financial results and planned organizational changes. - Emphasis on culture, offices are much more laid back than your typical cubicle scene - Newly-implemented quarterly performance evaluations (was semi-annually before) provides opportunity for promotions and/or merit increases - Quarterly bonuses - Insurance coverage is outstanding (in terms of cost) for singles - Open and honest feedback is frequently requested, given and encouraged - No level of leadership is considered "off limits" when it comes to conversation. You can walk up and chat with the CEO just the same as you can lean over the cube wall and talk to your neighbor. - Great co-workers and everyone is willing to help you at a moment's notice.

    Cons

    - While leadership is fairly transparent, sometimes the timeliness/context of certain announcements leaves much to be desired. - Factors impacting quarterly bonuses typically aren't known until days before the bonus payout is to take place, making it hard for employees to plan their personal budgets - While lots of feedback is given/received, there's not always proof that action is taken based off of that... feedback. This may just be a matter of communicating the connection between feedback and change more effectively. - Insurance coverage for families is quite expensive - It can be very hard to maintain a work/life balance when trying to deliver on multiple projects. - People Manager system typically tasks busy consultants with trying to oversee the career paths of a handful of direct reports. This essentially teaches you to fend for yourself, and simply keep your People Manager aware of your achievements. It's not imperfect, but doesn't seem to match up with the intended function of the People Manager system.

    Advice to Management

    There are likely to be growing pains in the short term (hence the neutral six month outlook) as the company strives to become bigger and better, but I think that ultimately the company will be much stronger and more focused than before. I like the move to quarterly evaluations, and always appreciate the desire to improve ourselves as a company.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth and experience. DayNine provides an environment that is friendly and not shy to promote. Very great co workers who are all very intelligent.

    Cons

    Often you get thrown into the deep end very quickly without guidance. This can lead to stressful moments, but can also lead to accelerated growth. Very much a sink/swim kind of place.

    Advice to Management

    Tim is a great guy and I really appreciate the environment that he has created. People management is also good (for the most part). Would like a more diverse leadership team (male, female, ethnicities).

    I worked at DayNine Consulting for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Workday is a solid platform and has grown marketshare each year since inception.

    Cons

    Workday is a poor partner and can't be trusted as they will push business to larger implementation partners.

    Advice to Management

    DayNine's leadership team is weak and I am sure they are pushed around by Accenture who acquired them recently.
