      Not a Best Place to Work

      5 Oct 2021 - Senior Product Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits were good. Work/life balance is good. Compensation is good. Office and amenities are good.

      Cons

      Despite the core values on the front page of their website and talked about openly nearly every day you are an employee, I found Workday to be lacking in Integrity and putting Employees First. From the integrity standpoint, in our office there was an individual who was clearly bullying and intimidating others on the team. This individual was reported to management and HR multiple times by multiple people and absolutely no changes were made. In fact, on more than one occasion, when reports were made the reporters were intimidated by management and it was made clear that these reports were not welcome. As for employees first, this is a top down management organization. Despite the talk of collaboration and inclusivity, the day to day is not in the team's hands. It is dictated by management. Finally, there is a severe lack of Human Resources support compared to other organizations I've been in. Finding someone to talk to about HR-related matters was difficult and is clearly a part of the problem.

      Pros

      Very friendly, open culture. I really appreciate the fact that Workday takes such care of protecting one of their greatest assets.

      Cons

      With all that being said about Workday being so great about maintaining their culture, there's a bit of an undertone of decisions are driven by a few at the top and the rest follow.

      Pros

      Great Company, great culture, best HCM technology on the market...

      Cons

      Worst (net new) sales job ever as very few reps make their number due to small account lists and poor planning by management. Despite constant churn, management continues to hire unsuspecting sales reps who inevitably leave. If you insist on joining Workday, make sure you are selling to the 'customer base' and NOT 'net new'. Pay split (base/variable) is not adequate given you might close 1 deal per year if you are lucky.

      Losing the Magic

      9 Aug 2021 - Sales Ops Manager in Pleasanton, CA

      Pros

      Workday is very employee centric, and supportive of all people; embracing the variety of ethnicities, cultures, and backgrounds that a global workforce brings. It is refreshing to work for a company that is socially responsible. Workday also has a number of perks, that while are becoming a standard in the Tech industry, are still nice to have. Things like an enhanced snack program, matching charitable contributions, and decent health insurance keep Workday a competitive employer.

      Cons

      A lot has changed over the years, and it hasn’t really been for the better. In Workday’s growth it has struggled to keep the experience the same for all employees. Managers have so much control over their subordinate’s Workday experience that many rule like they’re kings of tiny hills. In my time here I’ve witnessed managers cut salaries when subordinates moved 50miles away (but still within the Bay Area), managers insist that subordinates checkin on slack before going to the restroom, and managers creating jobs and hiring their friends to fill them. This type of behavior is just plain sad, Workday is supposed to be better than this.
