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

    Pros

    Workday does truly make an effort to put employees first. There are so many learning opportunities and team building events, it's hard to keep it all straight. Great office environment and co-workers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, in the end, the management sets the tone and the same mentality of ignoring problems surfaced from below because difficult employees "provide lots of value" allows the same old situations to exist as anywhere else. You have to walk the walk if you're going to talk the talk.

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work culture, flexible holidays, good snack program

    Cons

    Due vertical changes and hiring freeze as well some ex Oracle employees are playing politics by not allowing career growth within the organization. Managers are playing politics and individual contributors are troubled. HR and upper management also doesn't pay attention to pains of individual contributors. Lot of favoritism. Have to deal with mental stress.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Pleasanton, CA
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Flexibility and accommodation to work-life balance Encouragement for People Leaders to grow and training for them on a new way of managing Senior Leadership optimism and support for new ideas

    Cons

    Regardless of HR/People & Purpose communication, organizational and leadership changes are selected and appointed based on their tight network, which creates the inability for others to see a path forward toward leadership. Additionally, those leaders select people like them (in style, view point, color, gender, background) or that they've known a long time, which feels like the same "good ol' boy network". Many of the appointed leaders are white men, with an occasional nod to a (white) woman or man of color. And as they senior leadership is shifted around, creating potential opportunities for workmates to show interest in management, those management spots are also appointed. It's beginning to feel like the senior leadership is excited for growth and changes, but in the end leaving those of us who are looking for opportunities feeling like we have none, and we're expected to rally behind the changes regardless. The ethnic diversity in senior leadership and in management is so minimal that it's discouraging to believe in their words during VIBE week of diversity being important.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The people who work there support you and help you like no other, they'll go out of their way to provide you with resources that will make you succeed from day 1 of the job Great culture, there are no divides between management and lower level workers. You can setup time with a VP or exec without having to go through the "formal/political" channels that you might need to at other companies. Great work life balance & mix of lots of fun events during the work day

    Cons

    Wish the food options were better, but we do have a new cafe opening in another 2 months so hopefully this will change Compensation may not be as high as other companies out there.

    - Great growth potential - Flexible and relaxed work style - Extremely friendly and welcoming people you work with on a daily basis

    Cons

    - Mgmt at times can be strong willed and unwilling to listen to subordinates. This could be isolated to my team but there are a lot of former Oracle employees that tend to bring that older culture to Workday in their teams. - Slightly below average pay
