    Pros

    Technology is the best I have ever sold...WDAY backs up innovation, support, customer stories claims..they are real

    Cons

    Sales alignment, transitioning from those who benefited from the IPO to those who are new.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how you are engaging new employees, especially those who were not Employe #?..Not sure why everyone who was part of the IPO needs to tell me what number employee number they were.

    Pros

    I was proud to recruit for such a fast growing, disruptive, well respected company. The story was so fun and exciting to tell. My colleagues were fantastic.

    Cons

    Leadership in recruitment was weak, very little support from management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire stronger PEOPLE managers. A stronger Talent Acquisition leadership team, that treat their team with respect and support, is needed.

    Pros

    Great internship opportunity for computer science students - other departments not as much. They do a great job taking care of their employees, with great pay, complimentary housing, free seminars, and tons of fun details that create a fun office environment.

    Cons

    Not much growth or many learning opportunities outside the areas of computer science.

  10. Great people

    Pros

    Workday is a fun company that means business! We know how to make getting it done satisfying for both employees and customers which means that we have a lot of happy employees and customers. Workday has a workforce that is diverse and well rounded, and I believe that this shows in its products!

    Cons

    Workday needs to invest in better chairs. We sit in those things for the majority of our waking hours, they need to be comfortable and ergonomic, and are worth an investment.

    Advice to Management

    place an appropriate value on facilities rather than pinching pennies there.
