    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Generation Workday program really does do its best to acclimate new grads into the workforce. It's an easy way to meet a lot of really cool people. Workday also tends to hire really honestly nice people as new hires. The snack program is fantastic.

    Cons

    Make no mistake: Workday is PeopleSoft, Peoplesoft is Oracle, and, no matter how much they try to convince themselves, Workday is Oracle. There is zero career advancement at Workday, and it's designed that way. The management chain from the bottom-up is almost exclusively ex-Oracle, ex-Peoplesoft folk. Oracle employees are actively recruited for management or high-priority roles. There are very few people (to the...

    Advice to Management

    At this point, nothing. They've intentionally created this system, don't see anything changing for a long time.

    I worked at Workday

    Pros

    - The company has done a great job in establishing its foothold in the industry

    Cons

    - Low compensation compared to industry standard - Difficult to move across teams - HR Team is very difficult to work with, slow/all talk no action - Proprietary language makes it difficult for people to advance in careers - Slow moving for teams with applications that have mature

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in new technologies - Encourage leadership growth opportunities - Better compensation - Do not stop people from exploring other opportunities across the company - Don't segment company based on products, Workday is still one umbrella

    I worked at Workday for less than a year

    Pros

    Very employee-centric, fun company culture; treats their interns very well; you learn a lot about oo design;

    Cons

    Uses their own proprietary language, XpressO, that you will never use at any other company, so a lot of knowledge is not transferrable

    I have been working at Workday for less than a year

    Pros

    Had such a great summer due to this internship. They housed us, and had events for us all the time. The employees here are mostly all really nice, and the other interns were cool. Working wasn't ever really stressful, and felt laid back.

    Cons

    If you're in app dev, working in their proprietary language somewhat limits your learning experience for the internship. I felt like I didn't have time to really learn it that well, and therefore didn't do as much through the summer.

    Pros

    The opportunity to direct your own work and manage your own career is excellent. The technology is fun to work with. The product looks great!

    Cons

    Often times its up to you to get your work done, so you must be able to perform and deliver without someone breathing down your neck.

    Advice to Management

    Everything looks good!

  9. "Pleasant applications development intern experience"

    I have been working at Workday for less than a year

    Pros

    The office had a laid back atmosphere, the other employees were extremely friendly and outgoing. Everyone was helpful and it seemed like the other employees wanted me to succeed.

    Cons

    Their framework is unconventional and may take some time to get used to. It was a while before I could confidently start developing something without constantly needing guidance.

    I worked at Workday for less than a year

    Pros

    Workday is a fast-growing company that aims to deliver a high-quality SaaS product, but also does not overwork its employees. Company culture includes an annual company picnic, bring your child to Workday, and various company-sponsored events (note, this was all during one summer as an intern).

    Cons

    The proprietary application development language is not something you can put on a resume, but the development and problem-solving skills you learn by using it can.
