    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Lots of challenging work meaning opportunities to stand out. Good college onboarding program

    Cons

    Lower than industry average base pay. If considered a college hire, your base might be lower than someone with same title but "experienced hire".

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

    Pros

    Excellent culture. People care about success, not for individuals, but for the company. I'm in product development and everyone cares about the quality of the product. Do we have to make shortcuts to meet customer deadlines? Of course. But that's a conscious choice. The company is filled with learning opportunities and extremely intelligent and experienced people. As a young college graduate, this has been a great community...

    Cons

    As Workday grows, it's feeling growing pains in its processes and communication channels. How do we ensure speed to market with growing number of dependencies for each product? How do we allow everyone's opinions to be heard without endlessly delaying actual development? These are problems every decently sized company struggle with, and Workday is no exception to them. But everyone is conscious of them and are making...

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying different solutions. Don't be afraid to admit mistakes. Don't be afraid to admit not knowing. Be honest with company. When a nasty problem arises, tackle it head on. Don't avoid it and let it fester.

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

    Pros

    I am totally inspired by our co founders Dave and Aneel. They set the company culture and it's felt throughout every level of the organization. Not only that, the work is exceptionally interesting. The end goal is to make enterprise software that is engaging, easy, fun, and desirable to use. It's problem solving at its finest! Day to day, you get to work with other employees who have a passion for what they do. It makes...

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

    Pros

    There are very few, none stand out

    Cons

    There is no clear on-boarding or training process. New hires are left on their own to figure things out, and co-workers are less than willing to help with questions. Its like some sort of hazing. Most of the people I worked with felt a lack of confidence in their product knowledge, but they would never say that to a manager. operations are hap hazard, and there is no clear path to success. What are employees supposed...

    Advice to Management

    Help get new hires up to speed quickly through team members and training, stop enabling employees to feel like it's ok to not share knowledge and watch the new people struggle. Roll out some leadership training, drive a positive culture throughout the company. Do not reward people for simply having perceived expertise, leadership is about more than that. Stop the chaos, people are incredibly over-worked, which...

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

    Pros

    CEOs who believe in me and, unlike some others, are not weasels. Everyone here is really smart and motivated. Constant opportunities to innovate, as the kind of work we do has not been done before. Satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Long hours. Not paid competitive to the market, but that is balanced by great stock options in my case.

    Advice to Management

    Need some kind of sabbatical program for those of us who have been running at full speed for quite a while.

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

    Pros

    Workday is truly re-inventing how ERP systems work. Having been in ERP for 10 years, there is the opportunity to make business processes more efficient utilizing object modeling. That coupled with being SAAS makes for some interesting work. Workday is really telecommuter friendly; they don't care where you work as long as you are available and you meet your deadlines. I do believe the founders of the company want...

    Cons

    Health care and 401K options are disappointing; I've had better at other companies this size. Also the corporate culture can wear on you over time.

    Advice to Management

    Re-examine the health care benefits. I feel strongly that we are not getting the best value for what we pay.
