    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun, informal, ambitious, friendly, just a great place to work. Loads of opportunities and really smart people.

    Cons

    Hours can be long (by choice to get things done) but there is a lot of flexibility if you want to work from home, start earlier/later etc.

    I have been working at Workday as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Had such a great summer due to this internship. They housed us, and had events for us all the time. The employees here are mostly all really nice, and the other interns were cool. Working wasn't ever really stressful, and felt laid back.

    Cons

    If you're in app dev, working in their proprietary language somewhat limits your learning experience for the internship. I felt like I didn't have time to really learn it that well, and therefore didn't do as much through the summer.

    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.

    Pros

    The opportunity to direct your own work and manage your own career is excellent. The technology is fun to work with. The product looks great!

    Cons

    Often times its up to you to get your work done, so you must be able to perform and deliver without someone breathing down your neck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything looks good!

    I have been working at Workday full-time for 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.

    Pros

    work-life balance is great, they give you reimbursements for fitness so they want you to go work out. Also great outings with your team, excellent managers, and coworkers are all awesome. Plus I can bring my dog to work. Exciting, fast paced, environment, and growing company. Great culture too and good pay.

    Cons

    Needs more bathrooms in the building I'm in. Didn't get a raise in my salary yet...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just make us happy and you are doing a good job!
