People are friendly. Good career advancement opportunities though the product has become very complex and difficult to keep up with given all of the recent acquisitions.

Pros

Fun culture

Cons

Learning the product can be a challenge given the size and complexity

Great job, but your mileage may vary if you're a contractor

Good place to work since there are so many nice people to meet, at least at the lower levels of the workplace totem pole. It's a little strange that coworkers are instead referred to as "workmates". Some people can be hard to work with when they refuse to follow the right protocols, but that's usually not too big an issue.Contract workers have a differently coloured badge from the "actual" employees, but no one outwardly discriminates based off of just that. However, management will not hesitate to get rid of you though without warning and there's not much you can do. If you can get them to actually hire you, you'll probably have a great time. If you're a contract worker, it's like playing minesweeper. You'll have a great time until management suddenly decides to rid of you.

Pros

Free snacks/drinks in the break room, people always have leftovers from catering, pretty much no one is a pain to work with

Cons

No job security if you're a contract worker; you can be terminated effective immediately

I don't see any downsides

It's an amazing company, you can grow, and you get to take ownership of the projects you're working on.

deal manager

Worst company ever nothing good, the people are so weird. The most uncomfortable environment I’ve ever been In. Limited training and a management had zero personality. Always wanted to talk about kids not training.

Career advancement is difficult

Getting promotion is difficult, they have advancement spreadsheet and they will use it to criticize left and right not to give promotion. However work you do it does not matter. You need to butter everyone in top level to get promotion.

Pros

workload

Cons

No Promotion, No Job Satisfaction, No Technology learning

Management déplorable

J'ai subis un désequilibre de traitement par une manager incompétente et incapable de s'ouvrir à la contradictionDes accords sur mes reponsabilités de postes qui n'ont pas étés tenus.Un machination à base de tissus de mensonges pour pouvoir m'évincer.

great

A good review includes enough detail to give others a feel for what happened. Explain which factors contributed to your positive, negative or just so-so experience. You might also offer your view on what the company is doing well, and how they can improve. But keep things friendly and courteous!

Pros

great

Cons

none

Cares about employees and customers

After 2 years, I'm still pretty happy. The only reason I'd consider moving is for a better location. The Bay Area can suck. Coworkers are great, work is interesting, but need more investment in dev tools.

Pros

Great people

Cons

Office locations are in expensive locations

Great culture, but be patient!

Great culture but too many moving parts within management that can result in restarting body of work with process. Room for advancement can be slim which means you’ll need to be extremely patient.

Pros

Wonderful culture

Cons

Patience will be tested

Fun place but proprietary language

Everything is good but you have to live with proprietary language called Xpresso. This is not a normal programming language you have to code on web browser.

Pros

Stability

Cons

Great company

Still a great company despite their rapid growth. I have been fortunate to work here for the past few years. I find the work challenging and also feel my efforts are appreciated.

Employee Centric Culture, Weak Leadership

The culture is real at Workday, and new hires experience this from day one. However, the company is very insular, and leadership can behave as if their teams are fiefdoms to be ruled over. There is almost no curiosity regarding operational best practices in the industry, so there are many core processes that are immature. Workday has found itself in the same position as its predecessor, PeopleSoft - The company has been successful in the early years, but doesn't have the right leadership and humility to grow the business.

Cons

Talks the talk, doesn't always walk the walk
