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

Pros

Workday is truly re-inventing how ERP systems work. Having been in ERP for 10 years, there is the opportunity to make business processes more efficient utilizing object modeling. That coupled with being SAAS makes for some interesting work.

Workday is really telecommuter friendly; they don't care where you work as long as you are available and you meet your deadlines.

I do believe the founders of the company want people to enjoy where they work. Lots of company events, a couple of game rooms, and people joking around make for a good environment even with the high workload. (The CEO does expect you to work). Certain departments are more stressful than others.

Cons

Health care and 401K options are disappointing; I've had better at other companies this size. Also the corporate culture can wear on you over time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-examine the health care benefits. I feel strongly that we are not getting the best value for what we pay.

    Pros

    The company does a great job of making all new hires feel welcome. However, they're hiring so many, so fast, that some new hires are waiting a long time to get access to file for their benefits and other resources. The training for consultants is quite arduous but you learn a lot in a short time.

    Cons

    I think the IT staff could use some supplementing to help keep up with the new hires.

    Pros

    With more than 15 years experience in enterprise sales, I can say Workday bests all previous experiences. Although growing at light speed, this company is very methodical and intentional around strategy and execution, keeping the focus on cust sat rate at 99% (yes 99% is the current cust sat rate!).

    Cons

    This pace of growth will inevitable have its pains along the way, but this leadership team and team member base is made up of the best of the best in the industry and it shows.
