    I worked at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you are an intern you get perks. If you are sales you get commissions. Bagels and fruit. Games and pool in building.

    Cons

    Average/below market pay can only take your company so far. Unless you were in at the beginning, the iPo is not going to make you rich.

    You will work extremely hard for little gratitude. Be ready to be your own cheerleader as no one else in the company will be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the bagels, offer better pay.

    I worked at Workday full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Clear an apparent advancement opportunities
    - Supportive leadership offering mentorship where appropriate
    - Flexible, understanding working environment
    - Clean modular codebase
    - Willingness to listen to newcomers' ideas

    Cons

    - Too much training
    - Not enough pressure to push yourself
    - Social events and startup attitude seem forced for such a large company
    - App development platform is very slow and cumbersome to use

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I think they have created an excellent product and a great place to work, they are underutilizing their engineering staff. This obviously affects different people differently, but there is no real pressure to push yourself. Thsis is a severe mismanagment of the high-potential talent. At best, it leads to suboptimal performance; at worst, it leads to boredom and loss of talent.

    Also, the training is far too cushy and extensive. Research has demonstrated time and time again the superior effectiveness of on-the-job training, but Workday instead forces employees to attend
