    Pros

    AMAZING culture, non blame oriented, supportive, helpful and overall kind! Lots of information available for customer and employees, all at your fingertips!

    Cons

    Lots of information available and can be overwhelming!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and please do not let external influencers change the culture here. After being in the software industry for >20 years, you are THE BEST!

    I worked at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The product is about the only pro I can think of.

    Cons

    Watch your back - leadership is out to protect themselves. Even though they get "rated" every week, you don't actually see any action if they are getting bad ratings. No growth opportunity as leadership plays favorites. The company is still small enough for key leaders to have their eyes on certain individuals who they want to grow in the company. If you are not on that list or one of their favorites, good luck,...

    Advice to Management

    Look at who you have in place to lead the company in the next 5 years. While they were likely great when Workday was smaller in size, they have not grown with the company.

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

    Pros

    - Great culture of caring management - Good compensation - Willingness to adapt and grow

    Cons

    - Poor Project Portfolio Prioritization & Timing - Overcommitted Quarterly Goals - Too many project tools and success metrics

    Advice to Management

    There are many workmates who believe Workday is still a startup. Sure, the company still needs to be agile, but mindsets and organizational structures have to change if the company is going to scale. The company is making moves, but keep putting pressure on these simple facts.

    Pros

    A great generation 1 cloud product.

    Cons

    Don’t turn your back because the people you think are your friends will stab you in back to preserve themselves and their stock.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the madness and greed. Karma will catch up to you. Evil company at the top.

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The culture and future prospects of the company are the best things about this organization.

    Cons

    In an effort to keep costs low, cash compensation seems slightly below average. The stock compensation is good but hard to liquidate to sustain a desirable quality of life with a clear conscience given the company's prospects for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking about the future of the company. Anything you can do to help cash compensation would be appreciated.
