    Pros

    Great experience with the Workday program for college students. Had 3 rounds of training. One online during the end of the school year, another one was full time in a classroom for the week and the last one was at an internship company that is a Workday user.

    Cons

    You were hired through a company that uses Workday but not directly through Workday. I did HR training but I worked on Financials during the internship

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Managers are always willing to help and the company is growing! :) Everyone is very very friendly. And one of the biggest pros for me was their intern housing apartments were beautiful. Only slight downside is that you have a roommate but pretty reasonable for free housing.

    Cons

    I only met my hiring manager a couple of times, wish I got to meet up with him more but I did meet my project manager very often.

    Cons

    quick growth has forced Workday to compromise somewhat on level of resources they're bringing in.

    I worked at Workday as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are genuinely caring and very helpful. I had an amazing team that was willing to reach out to me to offer help all the time. There are plenty of company events that make sure employees are having fun in addition to their work.

    Cons

    The proprietary language can be really frustrating. It's difficult to want to work and put an effort into learning a language and tools that aren't used at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    None! I enjoyed the internship thoroughly.
