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

    Pros

    CEOs who believe in me and, unlike some others, are not weasels.
    Everyone here is really smart and motivated.
    Constant opportunities to innovate, as the kind of work we do has not been done before.
    Satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Not paid competitive to the market, but that is balanced by great stock options in my case.

    Advice to Management

    Need some kind of sabbatical program for those of us who have been running at full speed for quite a while.

    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.

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

    Pros

    -Friendly People
    -Fun Culture
    -Is growing rapidly
    -wants to get better
    - is killing the competition

    Cons

    People who have been in management since the company started aren't up-to-date with the consumer app quality that Workday is aspiring for. It really holds it down.
    Many of the new people hired come from places that Google and Facebook would not hire from.

    Advice to Management

    You should be making offers to people from everyday brands to come in and help pick up some of the drag. Recruiting from similar companies to Workday will only bring the product down. Which I know Workday does not want.

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

    Pros

    Working here is a great time. Lots of company parties, team outings, great culture and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not very competitive with pay, raises, RSU's, or bonuses. I've been here 2 years and I just received my first raise. It would have been a good first year raise, but after 2 years I was expecting much more. They also only give raises/promotions twice a year during performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better compensation

    Pros

    Community as a whole
    The work environment

    Cons

    Upper management seems to abuse their power a bit much.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe that because you are in a higher position, you will receive everything your heart desires.
