    Pros

    Inspiring Leadership, amazing product, awesome work environment. As Workday continues to grow, the company maintains a start-up feel and a fun, friendly culture.

    Cons

    No true cons, though I think some departments may have lower salaries in comparison to other companies of similar industries

    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.

    Cons

    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!

    The opportunity to direct your own work and manage your own career is excellent. The technology is fun to work with. The product looks great!

    Often times its up to you to get your work done, so you must be able to perform and deliver without someone breathing down your neck.

    Advice to Management

    Everything looks good!

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

    Pros

    Had such a great summer due to this internship. They housed us, and had events for us all the time. The employees here are mostly all really nice, and the other interns were cool. Working wasn't ever really stressful, and felt laid back.

    Cons

    If you're in app dev, working in their proprietary language somewhat limits your learning experience for the internship. I felt like I didn't have time to really learn it that well, and therefore didn't do as much through the summer.
