    I have been working at Workday (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - great focus on customer satisfaction, not just lip service
    - company bends over backwards for the employees with great culture, continuous dialogue, mentoring, free snack programme
    - the executives are some of the nicest bunch I’ve ever worked for - always have time for you
    - genuinely focus on employee satisfaction

    Cons

    - we all work VERY hard - but that’s to expect I guess
    - as we are growing, there is increasing focus on more sales more focus more customer sat more more more more.... but that’s to be expected of course!

    Advice to Management

    Please don’t let this place become an SAP or an Oracle. PLEASE!
