Everyone is Super Nice

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

Pros-Friendly People
-Fun Culture
-Is growing rapidly
-wants to get better
- is killing the competition

ConsPeople who have been in management since the company started aren't up-to-date with the consumer app quality that Workday is aspiring for. It really holds it down.
Many of the new people hired come from places that Google and Facebook would not hire from.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should be making offers to people from everyday brands to come in and help pick up some of the drag. Recruiting from similar companies to Workday will only bring the product down. Which I know Workday does not want.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good Experience, But Not Perfect

Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
Pleasanton, CA (US)

I have been working at Workday as an intern for less than a year

ProsThey supply housing and the pay is pretty good. Very good company to work for and they really invest in your development/ education as a software engineer.

ConsIt is a big company and sometimes you get lost in the shuffle or get bogged down in the corporate structure. They weren't extremely prepared for the fall interns with projects so there was some sitting around and waiting at times.

Great company, CEOs, product and co-workers!

Product Manager (Current Employee)
Pleasanton, CA (US)

I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCEOs who believe in me and, unlike some others, are not weasels.
Everyone here is really smart and motivated.
Constant opportunities to innovate, as the kind of work we do has not been done before.
Satisfied customers.

ConsLong hours.
Not paid competitive to the market, but that is balanced by great stock options in my case.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed some kind of sabbatical program for those of us who have been running at full speed for quite a while.
