    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer 

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

    Pros

    Technology is good to learn

    Cons

    Management is not good decision-making

    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.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Bad management when it comes to promote people who deserve it. Managers do not take employee feedback seriously. If you are an app dev and using XO then good luck if you want . to find a new job somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Directors need to watch managers on how they treat their employees.

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

    Pros

    Management place importance on a good company culture, with an employee first approach that actually implement. 1-on1's with my manager were always constructive and open. Opportunities to move departments, and for career progression. Competitive salary and RSU's. Opportunity to work with new technologies and to contribute to the selection of stack for greenfield projects.

    Cons

    If you're in a role that is mostly Xpresso(WDay proprietary language), it can limit your career prospects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it employee first.

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

    Pros

    Fruits in the cafeteria. Clean and neat office space. Work life balance. IT help-desk is very helpful and efficient.

    Cons

    First of all "Great place to work" gimmick is mainly a BS. Company is not on par in terms of benefits with other large tech companies around (like Google, FB or MS). Culture and work conditions varies largely depending on the department and team you are working at. I've seen examples when the whole teams were leaving their jobs in a course of less than 1 year. It's just shows an example how extremely unhappy people can...

    Advice to Management

    1. Align to the core values, not just claim them. 2. Look at the attrition rates across departments (it's easily measurable metric) and start investigating what is happening in departments with high attrition rate. Based on that start taking actions. Some directors and managers would have to be fired I'm sure. 3. Technology wise: get rid of Xpresso. Yes I know a lot of things dependent on it but just like it makes...

    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...

    Advice to Management

    Terminate every 2nd level / Sr managers. They do nothing except politics.
