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

    Pros

    They trust their employees, from day one they trust you to do your job and do the right thing. They are giving me a huge amount of opportunity and trust me to stay with them, which I have every intention of doing. Really heavily investing in my training and education with no contract commitments required from me. Really rigorous interview process for aptitude and cultural fit, it would be easy for a company growing so fast to drop their standards but they don't. Great company strategy, I really feel like our executive management have strategy down to a tee and and the work we are doing is well directed and making the company very profitable. With generous share options you feel like you are part of the company's massive success. Amazing offices, everything you could want. The snack program is just the best with a huge range of fruit delivered every day from the markets. Company parties and cultural events occur all the time. Their on-boarding process is top notch. I feel like I had the tools needed to start providing value right out of the door. Very quickly fit into my team. Such a great office location in Smithfield. Loads of opportunity to travel, generous number of holidays. Which as a young professional wanting to see the world is great. Great support system, multiple points of contact in the company for support, guidance and advice. Very little / no politics. It is just so refreshing to see a company with such strong morals, and good intentions to do so well competitively. Workday is on to a winning formula.

    Cons

    Salary isn't the most competitive & There is a lot of technical debt as a result of having to scale so quickly, every rule has multiple exceptions. (This isn't necessarily a con as it is what the work is.)

    Pros

    You may get a decent manager, but umm, good luck.

    Cons

    -Culture: they pride themselves on culture and being a system of engagement, but that is a joke. The system is driven by customer's complaining and zero data. Product manager do not even use data driven decisions. -Middle management is terribly mean and jaded; they only manage upwards. -Your success is dependent upon one variable: how much you try to look like you work as opposed to being evaluated on your actual work.
