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

Pros

Workday has been on a growth trajectory but has not changed in its basic outlook towards employees and customers. It's a fun place to work, where you get opportunities to work on exciting new projects. Work life balance is great - there may be some ups and downs in terms of work load, but overall a good balance is maintained. Management is very supportive and encourages innovative thinking. Decisions are made fast and emphasis is on trying, starting small and getting things done.

Cons

Can't think of any.

    Pros

    Started paying super competitively as of November 2013 due to the IPO.
    Management cares about you, and the work place is friendly.
    It has an upbeat college atmosphere where you're expected to be extremely social.

    Cons

    Some people spend all their time here. But that may be simply because they like it, not because they have to.
    People are often loud, joking, and jolly, which is mostly a pro but sometimes is distracting from work. You'll need some noise cancelling headphones if you want to concentrate.

    Advice to Management

    Help new hires understand what is expected of them.

    Pros

    Workday has innovative technology, highly intelligent and motivated co-workers and offers you the ability to manage your work arrangement for flexibility and balance. We work hard and achieve excellent results.

    Cons

    Workday is still a young company and suffers from immature corporate processes. For those who work outside of the Pleasanton corporate offices, communication can be blurred and opportunities are not as clear. In addition, unclear career paths seem to be the norm.
