      Workday technology is good but I am not like his management the way they are treating to partners not good. because they are not listing to anyone they are so arrogant not giving proper example not proper training they always in hurry and they don't have any criteria for fail pass to employee in certification.

      I have been working at Workday full-time for more 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.

      I worked at Workday full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Bagels and coffee are provided. Relaxed atmosphere Low expectations for work performance.

      Cons

      Some of the most incompetent people are here. I have seen people who are unable to do their jobs and unable to provide any value to anyone get promoted to management. This has happened multiple times and the company looks the other way. The management of the product, engineering, and QA organizations are selfish, political, and do not work as a team. Many people seem to be out only for themselves and promotions for themselves....

      Clean house. The company is rotting from the inside.

      Pros

      * Culture * Work-Life Balance * Caring Management Team * Great Talent Pool * Career Growth and Development Workday is really good at finding peoples' strengths and fitting them to positions that enable them to be their best. It's a win-win. I have been with the company since January of 2013 and I have to say, this company is the best place I have had to privilege to work for. I'm looking forward to continued...

      Cons

      The only downside is that we don't have a large enough venue for our kick-ass company meetings :-)

      Advice to Management

      I see very little politics at Workday. Management has done a good job of empowering and enabling career development.

      Pros

      Flexible hours, relaxed working environment, tech employee benefits par the course.

      Cons

      Disconnect with employee base; implementing new extremely unpopular travel expenditure program and somehow with stock at an all time high, while nearing profitability, compensation increases are lackluster and remain below market rate. Upward visibility overemphasized.

      I have been working at Workday

      Pros

      1) Can coast by easily doing minimal work 2) Pays well when factoring RSUs and ESPP 3) Emphasis in work life balance and getting along with coworkers 4) Good fringe benefits such as getting to attend the Altitude conference every year

      Cons

      Services consultant here. This is what I see out in the field with customers: 1) Other consultants that do the bare minimum for their customers leaving them extremely dissatisfied and wishing they went with a partner 2) Consultants that get rolled off projects year over year and are still with the firm because managing out low performers is a foreign concept to Workday 3) Management and project leadership caring more...

      Advice to Management

      If leadership is looking to do a big shake up of how services is managed I say go for it and leave no stone unturned. They would be shocked at what people are getting away with and what customers are having to deal with. Meanwhile I hope what I describe is just limited to my own org and not other teams in services.

        Pros

        Amazing culture, they really care about their employees and don't overwork you. They're also doing very well and growing

        Cons

        Some of the tech stack is proprietary so you won't have transferable experience
