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

    Pros

    Genuinely some amazing people Great place for graduates to get on the ladder Shares are a great investment plan Good benefits Ok Salary Internal mobility to get away from the proprietary language Agile coaches to advance teams

    Cons

    Ruinous middle management in some teams. Policy of 'owning your own career' while well intended at the top, is get out of jail free card for middle management to not do their job. While there are some amazing people, rapid growth led to the original culture becoming diluted. Poor work / life balance. Proprietary language limits external career opportunities. Incidents of bullying and bad managerial conduct are...

    Advice to Management

    Middle management: Work hard to make your teams lives easier, don't make your team work hard to make your life easier. Be honest. Stop giving yourself excuses and be better. Senior Management: Cast a cold eye on the reality of things, take action and drop the enforced positivity policy.

    I worked at Workday full-time for more than 3 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....

    I worked at Workday full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Workday RSU, ESPP, 401k , Salary is above industry standard

    Cons

    Worst managers, too much politics. Too many worthless people from Oracle who brings their friends even they can't do the job. Blame game is all over. Too many levels of managers. Company is still not profitable! Managers talk/ criticizes about employees looks in their own language which is non English. No HR or HR is a joke. This whole company is a joke. They hire HR for QA Engineers work. Now you understand the standard...
