    Pros

    Company as a whole is good. Lots of fun events to make employees happy.

    Cons

    Middle management in sales operations (deal management) is horrible. Management is mediocre and promoted to their level of incompetence who abuses power and destroys team morale. Even after several members of the team have left the company because of the this terrible middle management, the company has done nothing to remediate this behavior. Other parts of the company is great, just beware of joining their deal management...

    Culture , they really care. Also Tier One HCM & Finance product, incredible technology and inspiring leadership make it a great place to work and learn.

    Cons

    Long sales cycles for large accounts. Need to be patient.

    I have been working at Workday for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - great focus on customer satisfaction, not just lip service - company bends over backwards for the employees with great culture, continuous dialogue, mentoring, free snack programme - the executives are some of the nicest bunch I’ve ever worked for - always have time for you - genuinely focus on employee satisfaction

    Cons

    - we all work VERY hard - but that’s to expect I guess - as we are growing, there is increasing focus on more sales more focus more customer sat more more more more.... but that’s to be expected of course!

    Advice to Management

    Please don’t let this place become an SAP or an Oracle. PLEASE!

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

    Pros

    During my time here I had the opportunity to travel to my area and work with some great people on my team. The regional sales team I worked with were always super helpful and willing to talk to me and help me get comfortable in the role. All of the people I met outside of CSD were amazing and really showed a passion for what they do and the company. The company itself is really well run and has tremendous benefits...

    Cons

    Buckle up gang... As you can infer from my title the management staff seems to be better trained in lifting heavy weights and flexing their so-called "muscles" than they are in the area of leading. There is this false hope that there will definitely be a spot for you after your 2 years, but not even the management can get a job anywhere else in the company. Like any good sales staff, you are a bunch of trained monkeys...

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

    Pros

    Market leader in HCM, catching up in FINS and tons of referenceable customers. Great product to sell. You can make great money here IF you have a good territory and take advantage of company-run SPIFF promotions. Great systems and enablement in place to aid in your success as a rep. Decent work/life balance. Innovative technology makes selling fun here. You will compete against free or heavily discounted vendors so your...

    Cons

    Culture has been diluted due to explosive growth, frequent (and chaotic) sales re-orgs and lower than average market compensation for sales. Less than 20% of AEs make their number at Workday. Although to management’s credit, quotas were finally reduced in some market segments to right-size this issue. No 360° feedback and lots of incompetent RSDs. Overhired reps in most territories so patch shrinks every year or shifts...

    Advice to Management

    I genuinely love this company but there is room for improvement. For an HR company, we suck at HR. Expecting employees to go through an e-ticketing system for help (and not ever being told who is our HR business partner) is amateur hour. Stop making us pay for parking. Revamp your maternity leave policy for women in sales; it’s truly punitive and awful. Would love to see more women in sales management. P.S. Bring Dave...

    Company strategy is spot on and the work environment is great.
