    don't like the management

    Pros

    Excellent Leadership
    Outstanding Product
    Customer and Employee Friendly
    Challenging Work
    Great colleagues and Teamwork

    Cons

    Growing super fast so need to be ready for change. Not sure this is a con but have to be ready to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture alive. Don't allow mid-level managers to create politics.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move into other positions within Workday. Since this is a fast growing company, many positions open up every year.

    Cons

    With change comes movement of leaders within the company. So, who your manager is this year may not be the same person next year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote within and give opportunity to others that exceed expectations

    Pros

    Technology is the best I have ever sold...WDAY backs up innovation, support, customer stories claims..they are real

    Cons

    Sales alignment, transitioning from those who benefited from the IPO to those who are new.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how you are engaging new employees, especially those who were not Employe #?..Not sure why everyone who was part of the IPO needs to tell me what number employee number they were.

    Pros

    I was proud to recruit for such a fast growing, disruptive, well respected company. The story was so fun and exciting to tell. My colleagues were fantastic.

    Cons

    Leadership in recruitment was weak, very little support from management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire stronger PEOPLE managers. A stronger Talent Acquisition leadership team, that treat their team with respect and support, is needed.

    Pros

    In 1 sentence, WAS AWESOME
    I was in app dev, after 6 week training, took on cases just like full time employees - so I wasn't just doing tedious work or anything, got to DO what a full time employee did everyday.
    housing included
    competitive wage

    Cons

    no cafeteria (but there's food nearby)
    no gym (but who uses company gyms anyways)

    Pros

    Good product team and expand rapidly. People there are very nice in general.

    Cons

    No career development. Manager doesn't appreciate hard working. Management is not professional. Inherited Peoplesoft culture although they don't want to label like that. Very fake. Low pay!
