    I have been working at Workday full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Workday is a fun company that means business! We know how to make getting it done satisfying for both employees and customers which means that we have a lot of happy employees and customers. Workday has a workforce that is diverse and well rounded, and I believe that this shows in its products!

    Cons

    Workday needs to invest in better chairs. We sit in those things for the majority of our waking hours, they need to be comfortable and ergonomic, and are worth an investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    place an appropriate value on facilities rather than pinching pennies there.

    Put the interns to dorm in SF or the bay area.

    I worked at Workday as an intern

    Pros

    The culture is amazing. Everyone really loves being here, loves each other, or (usually) both. Lots of company sponsored activities which make every week exciting. Management cares about you. You become inspired to work harder. Good pay, free housing (for interns and some positions).

    Cons

    Not many training courses offered for those that like learning from courses. Lots of people still stay after 5, so there is pressure to work longer hours. At times, hard to concentrate because people are always talking and laughing with each other, but a good pair of headphones will help.

    I have been working at Workday full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great product, well-managed at the higher levels, expanding, very positive and flexible work environment. Some of the best people you'll ever work with.

    Cons

    Infrequent raises, even for long-time employees. One or two departments treat their employees badly. And there really aren't enough bathrooms on each floor anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for employees to transfer internally. Other than that, keep up the good work.

    The work environment

    Upper management seems to abuse their power a bit much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't believe that because you are in a higher position, you will receive everything your heart desires.

    Pros

    Working here is a great time. Lots of company parties, team outings, great culture and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not very competitive with pay, raises, RSU's, or bonuses. I've been here 2 years and I just received my first raise. It would have been a good first year raise, but after 2 years I was expecting much more. They also only give raises/promotions twice a year during performance reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better compensation
