I worked at Workday full-time (more than a year)

Pros

A lot of good people (although most have left)
Fairly good product

Cons

Senior Management is Machiavellian
No upward growth
"In crowd" atmosphere
Innovation is discouraged
If you get on the wrong side of Snr Management, you are put on "special project"
IPO won't get their emps anything. C'mon guys, $250m raised in VC funding?! You will be left with a crap job and no upward mobility

Too bad money can't buy you character and integrity

    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    Great Technology
    Great Vision
    Fun People to work with
    Strive to do your best

    Cons

    Inexperience Management
    Decisions come from one person with little room for feedback
    No Career Path - after entry level - you are stuck in a path to no where
    Internal fighting between development (engineering) and product management (business)
    Everyone reports to one person -- that one person has no time to talk and eventually ignores you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you plan to keep good people and be the BEST, then you need to start to clean house from the TOP... the people you promote to management aren't really good managers -- You provide HR applications... it's about time you develop your own HR team and create solid careers paths in development and in other areas... right now, for example, your financial development team is headed by one person and everyone reports to one person... no growth for anyone on the team -- that one person has absolute control... not the best way to run your engineering team.

    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    Workday is a great company, has a phenomenal product, and is for the most part very well managed. It also has very good values that it tries to embody in every aspect of their business and how they treat employees

    Cons

    The values I just mentioned don't seem to be equally carried out in every department.
    The inside sales department is run in a fashion that doesn't represent the values the owners work so hard at implementing, which is a shame.
    Also, there seems to be rampant nepotism going on.
