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

    Pros

    - 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

    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.

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

    Pros

    There 4 years The company crazy growth in Ireland has only brought more benefits and dedication to culture and employees. Pushing on candidate experience and diversity, but not in a tick the box way- more like: let's make it even better because cause we're proud of the company. The interns get a full program with a dedicated team in charge, and are hired after graduation. Grads have career dev program. Experienced employee get other dedicated upskilling training. Overall still in after 4years.

    Cons

    Should push disability diversity efforts further

    I worked at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great culture, great people - really good sense of teamwork, people want to help out - Great modern office space - Great perks; shares, gym allowance, healthcare etc

    Cons

    - Company has grown so quickly that at times it can be a bit disorganised - Proprietary language that's used to build the product is very restrictive to building a great product - On the Product Management side, there was little room for innovation as the roadmap became an list of items built for customers who shouted the loudest rather than strategic priorities

    Pros

    Workday has a great culture. They value their employees, and provide great benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons on a day to day level to note. The only "con" may be that the company is growing rapidly, and that can lead to some bumps in the road along the journey. However, the leadership always responds quickly and effectively to any challenges that come up
