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


    Best technology; great people who are in it for the ride, not the cash; huge growth; focus on customer happiness (not screwing them for short term profits); a joined-up and exciting narrative; very honest about flaws and getting better at solving them. Positive, enthusiastic, professional staff - walk the floor: everyone is friendly and you won't know who the VP's as everyone is so friendly - no ivory towers here!


    Not as aggressive as competition; growing pains can leave gaps in the organisation and its processes can be clumsy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep staff informed, continue engaging with as many people internally as you can - the informal 'brown bag' sessions are great to get the big picture.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Workday in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Spoke to Workday's recuriter in Ireland - disccused what I was asking for in Salary and agreed to forward my CV. Some weeks later when I enquired, was told (in writing) that the salary budget had been cut so the upper range was now GBR 15k less. I deceided not to pursue the job.
    The recruiter agreed it was unprofessional to advertise at one rate and then cut (especially by so much) but claimed it was down to Workday - who knows?
    I would have liked to work for them, but not at way less than I can earn elsewhere.
