    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move into other positions within Workday. Since this is a fast growing company, many positions open up every year.

    Cons

    With change comes movement of leaders within the company. So, who your manager is this year may not be the same person next year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote within and give opportunity to others that exceed expectations

  11. Don't believe anything they say!

    Pros

    Great Pay
    Travel Opportunities
    Fantastic product
    Great internal software eg; skype, salesforce etc

    Cons

    Terrible culture - they will go behind your back and lie to you. There is no transparency or honesty
    Global company - very confusing different rules in different locations
    No freedom or autonomy - you will be under the microscope and micro managed over pointless irrelevant things
    Lack of confidence in company brand - the company is petrified and does not trust their sales reps to sell their software
    No feedback ever given
    Does not care about sales results or performance - I did 200% of my quota and was still out on a performance improvement plan

    Advice to Management

    For starters I recommend to management that if they have a problem with somebody they do not fear confrontation. Management seem to throughly enjoying going behind others backs and nobody appreciates it and it solves nothing. Rather than offering employees stock bonuses I recommend creating a culture of honesty and integrity. Stop focusing on the little minor things like spelling mistakes in an email report and start focusing on driving results.
