    I have been working at Workday full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At Workday, you'll work with the best and the brightest. Everyday you get to be inspired by someone with whom you work, and you get to try things you've never done. Workday is a very flat organization, which means that your voice always matters. Workday is filled with people who are givers rather than takers, as the culture is built on collaboration rather than politics.

    Cons

    I've never worked as many hours as I work at Workday. The pace can either be invigorating or draining, depending on your personality.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, Workday's management seems terrific. It's great to have a visionary CEO, and to have people who really seem to care about the future of Workday as managers.

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

    Pros

    Very Experienced Senior Leadership
    Great Product
    Happy Customers
    Long Term Growth Opportunities

    The software is in very high demand, and there we are filling a need that is really only supplied by one company. The incumbent vendors are doomed (with perhaps the exception of SAP). Oracle will soon leave the ERP market, because no one will be buying on-premise ERP in 5 years. Tech comes and goes, and we are on the way in.

    Cons

    Growing pains associated with any hyper-growth company (i.e. processes are fluid and sometimes unclear)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. As long you continue to treat the front-line employee with respect and honesty, our future is extremely bright.

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

    Pros

    The office had a laid back atmosphere, the other employees were extremely friendly and outgoing. Everyone was helpful and it seemed like the other employees wanted me to succeed.

    Cons

    Their framework is unconventional and may take some time to get used to. It was a while before I could confidently start developing something without constantly needing guidance.

    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

    keep doing what you are doing

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

    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

    Pros

    Compensation is great especially variable compensation.

    Company leadership is great. They are real people who understand and care about their employees.

    Endless opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging as with any hyper growth company.

    Another factor that likely comes into play is that each employee is a stockholder which means that they can perhaps be squeezed especially since the stock matures over 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!!!
