I have been working at Workday full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Innovative company with energized employees all working together to make the company succeed. Core values are refreshing.

Cons

Success and growth keep company in a constant state of change. Not an environment that everyone is comfortable with.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you've been doing

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

    Pros

    - If you are the type who takes instructions and follows them without any space or time for creativity join this firm
    - If you also are the type who work better under inefficient leaders - Join this Company

    Cons

    - I agree with everyone else on this portal about Workday's Clicky culture - If you are in the in crowd you get away with almost anything.
    - There is no room for innovation or creativity, coz you are expected to follow procedure every single second of your time here. Creativity is for the higher ups, if you are in the low rung and want to be creative you are going to be shot down almost immediately.
    - The nickname - WorkDaynNight is very true. Hence no work life balance at all.
    - Don't expect your manager to help you figure out your career; strengths or weaknesses. She will have no interest or intention to contribute to your professional growth.
    - Benefits are the worst a Bay Area Tech company can ever offer.

    This is the part that is most frustrating - They do not like you moving around teams. They discourage that with all their might.

    ps: The key to success here is to suck up to HR; There is very little sense of confidentiality in that department.

    Advice to Management

    Post IPO phase for any company is tough -- tread carefully; compensate and appreciate employee; Review your benefits; don't try so hard to behave like a big firm.

    I have been working at Workday full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, motivated, enthusiastic people and an overwhelmingly positive culture
    Leading edge technology
    Excellent business model
    Excellent sales pipeline

    Workday is a fast paced software company with vision and leadership. It is an excellent place to advance internally, and also excellent for a future resume since it has a reputation for hiring well, and uses leading edge technologies. People work together without the paralyzing politics found in so many corporations, because the management has made it so by having policies that reinforce and reward teamwork and innovation.

    Cons

    no cons. this is a great company.

    Advice to Management
