    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    1) Can coast by easily doing minimal work 2) Pays well when factoring RSUs and ESPP 3) Emphasis in work life balance and getting along with coworkers 4) Good fringe benefits such as getting to attend the Altitude conference every year

    Cons

    Services consultant here. This is what I see out in the field with customers: 1) Other consultants that do the bare minimum for their customers leaving them extremely dissatisfied and wishing they went with a partner 2) Consultants that get rolled off projects year over year and are still with the firm because managing out low performers is a foreign concept to Workday 3) Management and project leadership caring more that people get along and keeping the peace then actually making people accountable to deliver for customers. Customers continue to get screwed over in the process while high performers have to pick up the slack for the dead weight. 4) Customers telling me that Workday Services is going to be screwed over long term if the quality doesn’t improve 5) The pipeline showing signs of drying up a bit. Perhaps customers are getting wise to the fact that Workday cares more about doing everything possible to sell subscriptions to the detriment of services. Totally understand if customers begin to look elsewhere as they need to look out for their own interests. 6) Colleagues being burned out because none of the low performers are willing to stretch themselves in expanding their skill sets so all the work is shouldered by just a few key resources
