I worked at Workday

ProsExceptional technology, helpful well intentioned but completely disempowered middle management.

Cons-Senior Executive leadership dictatorial approach is formula for failure.
-While claimed domain expertise is HR, HR systems are lacking, sub-par integration with benefit providers (I still get mail and email from benefit providers as if i work there!) and well below market benefits and compensation packages.
-HR and legal team way over their heads
-Middle management completely powerless and has no control over their domain.
-Culture is not as described. It is long workdays for low pay and no loyalty in return

Advice to Senior ManagementGood luck on your way to the scrap heap history with all the other companies with good technology, an outstanding founder who "let it get away" by entrusting the company to the wrong people. My advice is to make Sr. Leadership change NOW or all your great ideas will be for naught. Stretching the truth about customers and customer stories, about technology capabilities, about internal expertise only works for a while. Tell the truth! Practice what you preach regarding HR practices!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
