    I worked at Workday full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Clear an apparent advancement opportunities
    - Supportive leadership offering mentorship where appropriate
    - Flexible, understanding working environment
    - Clean modular codebase
    - Willingness to listen to newcomers' ideas

    Cons

    - Too much training
    - Not enough pressure to push yourself
    - Social events and startup attitude seem forced for such a large company
    - App development platform is very slow and cumbersome to use

    Advice to Management

    While I think they have created an excellent product and a great place to work, they are underutilizing their engineering staff. This obviously affects different people differently, but there is no real pressure to push yourself. Thsis is a severe mismanagment of the high-potential talent. At best, it leads to suboptimal performance; at worst, it leads to boredom and loss of talent.

    Also, the training is far too cushy and extensive. Research has demonstrated time and time again the superior effectiveness of on-the-job training, but Workday instead forces employees to attend
