I have been working at Workday as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

They supply housing and the pay is pretty good. Very good company to work for and they really invest in your development/ education as a software engineer.

Cons

It is a big company and sometimes you get lost in the shuffle or get bogged down in the corporate structure. They weren't extremely prepared for the fall interns with projects so there was some sitting around and waiting at times.

    "Overall, great product and excellent senior management; Beware, toxic CSD environment."

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

    Pros

    Great senior leadership, fun company events. All employees are invited to company meetings. Workday is leading provider of ERP in the cloud, stock is performing well, keep it up.

    Cons

    Many of the old reviews regarding the CSD environment from 2012 remain true well past their date.
    Senior management may not have any idea how bad it really became, or just didn't care;
    bait and switch. Limited career advancement from CSD, most after their CSD tenure end up in positions filled with recent graduates. Some have made it into very interesting roles, the majority went into other support roles not related to prospecting for new customers. Long story short: Your CSD skills have little value in other areas of the company. (Not worth it for all the grunt work that you're enslaved to do.) Especially if you have to do it in SLC.

    If you're interested in 2+ years of cold calling, only to find yourself rotating around to a somewhat related support role, be my guest. If you're passionate about sales, and you want a much more linear and logical career path, salesforce.com might be a better choice.

    I have been working at Workday full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    hire top quality talent, management is fantastic, product is great and the customers are happy

    Cons

    lots of hires from legacy companies. need more youth and innovative thinking in the sales force

    Advice to Management

    hire from more innovative companies rather than from those that we deem are antiquated
