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

    Pros

    I have never worked with a more positive group of people working collaboratively and determinedly towards a common goal, and having a ton of fun in the process. Employees are the number one company value, and it shows. Because of the continued growth, you can create your own opportunities if you have the drive, the knowledge, and the skills. If you have a great idea, bring it to the table. You will be listened to, but big egos not welcome.

    Cons

    The pay is not yet competitive. It's more about taking a bet on the company and its potential for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The tone and the values are set at the top, and ours is amazing.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Fun atmosphere with great leadership. The pace of work is changing constantly as the company grows which makes for great challenges.

    Cons

    Some may see the constant change as a con. It can make things feel a little unstable but all I see is opportunities with the amount of growth the company is going through.

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

    Pros

    work-life balance is great, they give you reimbursements for fitness so they want you to go work out. Also great outings with your team, excellent managers, and coworkers are all awesome. Plus I can bring my dog to work. Exciting, fast paced, environment, and growing company. Great culture too and good pay.

    Needs more bathrooms in the building I'm in. Didn't get a raise in my salary yet...

    Advice to Management

    Just make us happy and you are doing a good job!

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

    Pros

    I have been working here for about 4 months now. I came straight out of college with a degree in business. Working for Workday as been the most incredible experience. They take so much time and money in training their employees. I'm challenged every day. My leadership gives me the tools to succeed. The people that I work with are hard working, funny, and just down right good people. I'm not over worked even though I'm salary, work about 40-45 hours a week. Also the industry is exploding so Workday is growing faster then any company I know. I turned down a huge salary to come here and I have to say it was so worth it. I'm so happy to come into work every day.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything honestly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making your employees feel appreciated and continue to challenge them on the individual level.
