    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

    I worked at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some really nice people. HCM product set is great.

    Cons

    Seriously where to start. Easily the worst company I have ever worked for in my life. Workday has employed a management layer of people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. You will be micromanaged to the nth degree, and even though you have been completely dis-empowered you will still be blamed when things don't work out based on decisions you didn't even make. Avoid this toxic company.

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

    Pros

    The best company I've ever worked for with a very humble, understated and intelligent CEO. Amazing autonomy and trust which is a great way to foster loyalty and hard work. Very capable, passionate and fun team members.

    Cons

    Employees don't always feel they can express their ideas. There can also be limited investment in, and limited scope for, growth. There are also some amazingly skilled team members that would love to be doing more, but are pigeon holed and/or not supported to grow.

    I worked at Workday full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great product supported by a great team of people. Continuous innovation means that you are always at the cutting edge of technology. Everyone works as a team with a common objective of earning customer satisfaction and building the business.

    Cons

    Growing very quickly and very focussed on numbers, sometimes at the expense of core values. Operates in a hyper competitive environment. Frequent change of territories can be disruptive and unsettling.

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

    Pros

    Workday is growing fast in the markets outside the US and providing good career opportunities in many new geographies markets. Good opportunities in sales, services and support in the field operation. Teams in new markets get to work across multiple functional areas.

    Cons

    Working in offices outside of the corporate headquarters can be a challenge, but the management team does make the effort to communicate to and visit remote offices.

    I have been working at Workday full-time

    Pros

    Workday has been a great place to work for many years. Dave and Aneel have done a tremendous job creating a culture of high customer satisfaction, beating our competition, and making Workday a fun and rewarding place to work.

    Cons

    Workday does still seem to lag the market in compensation. I wouldn't go so far so as to say Workday has become "too bureaucratic" but it is experiencing the changes that come with rapid and successful growth that make it sometimes seem less nimble than it used to be.
