    Best place to work, ever

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

    ProsStarted paying super competitively as of November 2013 due to the IPO.
    Management cares about you, and the work place is friendly.
    It has an upbeat college atmosphere where you're expected to be extremely social.

    ConsSome people spend all their time here. But that may be simply because they like it, not because they have to.
    People are often loud, joking, and jolly, which is mostly a pro but sometimes is distracting from work. You'll need some noise cancelling headphones if you want to concentrate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHelp new hires understand what is expected of them.

    Great Company with a Culture to Match

    Applications Developer (Current Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

    ProsTraining here is long but very helpful to get you situated, flexibility in schedule, smart and amazing people to work with and everyone you see is excited to be at work.

    ConsFor App Developers you need to keep other programming languages in your back pocket because you won't get to practice them here

    Innovative, Fun, Inspiring place to work

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

    ProsYou know what you are working will have a large contribution to the company and to the overall benefit of our customers. With the new continuous development model we see our impact in as little as 2 weeks from when we developed it.

    ConsThe company is growing so quickly and we are constantly trying to make our products better so sometimes the technology might change faster than we know how to adapt to it.

    Fast paced, innovation filled, collaborative environment

    Professional Services (Current Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

    ProsWorkday has been on a growth trajectory but has not changed in its basic outlook towards employees and customers. It's a fun place to work, where you get opportunities to work on exciting new projects. Work life balance is great - there may be some ups and downs in terms of work load, but overall a good balance is maintained. Management is very supportive and encourages innovative thinking. Decisions are made fast and emphasis is on trying, starting small and getting things done.

    ConsCan't think of any.

    Excellent Employer

    Senior Engagement Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsWorkday has innovative technology, highly intelligent and motivated co-workers and offers you the ability to manage your work arrangement for flexibility and balance. We work hard and achieve excellent results.

    ConsWorkday is still a young company and suffers from immature corporate processes. For those who work outside of the Pleasanton corporate offices, communication can be blurred and opportunities are not as clear. In addition, unclear career paths seem to be the norm.

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