    Pros

    The product is best-in-class and the rest of the landscape knows it. Most people who work here are genuinely good people who work hard but understand the need for work/life balance.

    Cons

    The rest of the market is spending a ton to catch up. This means lots of pressure to perform and some people "changing roles" when they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Don't compare our products to our competitor's and say "good enough" when we are better than the standard they have set. There are still a lot of improvements that can be made, and we need to continue to define the standard rather than just try and beat the status quo.

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

    Pros

    The core of Workday is collaboration not competition. Everyone is interested in seeing the company succeed and by extension seeing team members succeed. There isn't as much of a 'what's in it for me' mentality when approaching others for assistance.

    Cons

    Because the company is growing so quickly processes can sometimes lag behind the needs and it can be difficult to identify the proper resources.

    Advice to Management

    Would give you all 5s if there was 401k matching. That is the biggest drawback in the overall package.
