    I have been working at Workiva

    Pros

    Positive people breeds positive culture. Out of the many firms I have worked with, this company is one that stands firmly on their company values and culture. Our CEO, Marty, once told us ‘Business is all about people’. People means customers, people also means Workivians. During difficult period, we do not ring up clients just for our own performance indicators, we call them to show we CARE and will be here for them. This is also reflected in internal Workiva culture from top down as Management has demonstrated that they CARE for Workivians not just just for ‘a show’. Noticed how I never refer to us as Workiva staff, because the company is us and we are the company. We are Workivians.

    Cons

    As far as I have seen around here, Management will NOT sit on our concerns when we bring them up and let it mushroom into irreparable demages.

    Great culture and product. The team's are pretty busy with work. Newer technology and great atmosphere.
