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

    Pros

    Technology is the best I have ever sold...WDAY backs up innovation, support, customer stories claims..they are real

    Cons

    Sales alignment, transitioning from those who benefited from the IPO to those who are new.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how you are engaging new employees, especially those who were not Employe #???..Not sure why everyone who was part of the IPO needs to tell me what number employee number they were.

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

    Pros

    I could gush about how much I love working at Workday, but the simple fact is I will look back (in 30 years) at my time and say it was the single best work experience of my life!

    Cons

    Do I really need one?

    "Workday / Should be Work All Day and Night"

    I worked at Workday full-time

    Pros

    The darling HR product but definitely not the darling Finance product.

    Cons

    The good days are gone. No Work life balance. Worked all day and night. A lot of people that are just fake. Sales Management uses the "F" bombs and a lot of pressure which is not motivating. Remote sales reps get bullied into going into the office which is mostly empty for face time except for certain meetings. Pushing their financials which is not top rated with finance folks. Unfortunately the culture is turning into Oracle. Look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    You should stick to what you do best which is HR

    Pros

    Focus on customers is world class along with product offering. Most customers are very happy and truly satisfied.

    Cons

    Sales cycles are very long and limited. Too many salespeople chasing too few opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Align sales territories so that the majority of sales representatives feel they have a solid chance to make their quota. Dissatisfaction among salespeople is high due to limited opportunities for success.

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

    Pros

    Great product and technology - development team at corporate was a blast.

    Cons

    Very micromanaged and cheap. Travel dollars are watched closely. Plan to stay in lower end hotels and book cheap flights.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Workday really is on the next wave of technology, bringing SaaS to the enterprise space.

    Cons

    While the product is really strong, some in management believe the product is perfect and sells itself.
