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

    Pros

    Manager's are engaged and value your feedback
    The company seems to go out of its way to show you they care from snack programs, to having a care packaged delivered to your house there seems to be a lot of thinking about employees.
    Senior Management are very focused on ensuring the culture remains in tact as the company grows.
    The product is fantastic and it is great to be able to sell it with integrity.

    Cons

    So times it is hard to get some genuine constructive feedback as everyone is so programmed to be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it, stay humble.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Workday full-time

    Pros

    Maybe the company is a great company overall, but the department I worked with was the worst I have ever been in my life.

    Cons

    They call Workday Education WE. There's no WE. There's only bossy managers and the worst mentoring program I've ever seen. If you are not able to learn by memory days and days of teaching scripts, don't risk!

    Advice to Management

    Management is too busy to cover each other's back instead of caring about people. Leaving that place is the only advice I can give.

    Pros

    A really positive, inclusive culture, with a leadership team that listen and an empowered HR team who are constantly driving to improve the employee experience.
    Great customer relationships, as our clients understand we are invested in the relationship and the product.
    Top-quality product with breadth and depth expertise in our development team.

    Cons

    With so much growth the organisation changes very quickly to adapt - which is a strength but can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the culture remains as good as it is now as we scale the business.

    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!

    Increase pay to keep best talent, especially when growth rates start slowing
