    It has been an amazing time working at Workday. The people are extremely friendly and are always willing to help.

    Intern (Current Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

    The work environment

    It is not what they pretend to be.

    Anonymous (Former Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

    ProsDecent pay.
    Some departments seemed good to work for still when I left.

    ConsLies from management.
    Backstabbing to gain rank.
    Sexual harassment towards females at least in my department. (yes a compliant was given to HR. But even the people I know saw it didn't want to get involved)
    The company moto is 'Workday and nights' definitely true if you want to get ahead. Don't expect a family life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExamam your new management. It's about how can I rise though the ranks. Not about employees. You want to be be the best place to work. Stop asking us to lie on the public servey. They give 2 surveys. One for the public. The other for the truth that management sees. And ignores it seems.

    Fast growing company with focus on employee

    ProsThere is a great sense of ownership of the services each team provides and with the company growing at a fast pace, there are lot of opportunities for grow into roles which you are looking for.

    ConsAs the company is still not know as much as it should be outside US, it is relatively new in Europe and still has to find a name to be amongst the best employer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pretty Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

    ProsThe Generation Workday program does a good job of bringing in top talent and grooming them to be the future faces of the company. For what I do at the company, I found the pay to be great, coming out of school. The company is growing, so they are adding benefits all the time. Nice free gym membership.

    ConsIn certain roles, you can be stretched thin a times. Workday emphasizes fun and friendship as being important to the overall culture, but It can be more attainable to some than others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep investing in your employees and paving the way for great enterprise SaaS!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
