    Advice to Management

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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...

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    • Decent salary, stock option, ESPP available • Peer-level colleagues are very good, friendly, open to new ideas • Good snack program • First, two year is really very exciting • Great company for college graduates

    Cons

    • Working days are very long, for a senior engineer position you can expect meetings with the USA till 7 pm (sometimes till 8). And day starts at 9 am. Too many meetings. • Career growth is very limited (if you have the ambition to grow in technical ladder, then this company is not for you) -- Some people already complained about favouritism (read other Glassdoor reviews). • Majority of the managers are good at talking...

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

    Pros

    - bagels every morning, telecommute, pet-friendly - store and restaurant discounts - near BART and mall

    Cons

    - Come here if you want to sink your engineering career. This place is filled with tech garbage no one really cares for like gerrit, openstack, and nagios. Their platform is built on proprietary language, xpresso, that is useless outside the company. - Many people come here from companies like SAP, DELL, and EMC to seek shelter and safe heaven under the illusion the Workday HR promotes as the company's "core values"....

    Advice to Management

    Give an opportunity for those who are bringing innovative tech and ideas to the company. Hire millennials with good education and embrace change that will help the company grow outside the box. You are doomed to fail if you continue like this.

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management and coworkers are friendly and excel at their jobs. I have the freedom to work remote when necessary and I am given a good work life balance.

    Cons

    Proprietary technology is a mixed bag. While I think it's a powerful programming language, I think it's hampered me in my learning. However, many people have made moves to other teams that do not use proprietary language so there is room to move within the company.
