Current Employee - Senior Director

I have been working at Workday full-time for less than a year

Pros

So many. The company has put people first during this pandemic. Quickly moved our global workforce to WFH (one of the first to do this); extension of childcare and elderly care benefits; one-time... bonus; extended leave and much more

Cons

Nothing to note at this stage

Advice to Management

Keep it up. So proud to work for a company that truly focuses on our workmates as the number one priority.
