Featured Review

Current Employee - Project Manager

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

Pros

Supportive and familial atmosphere within teams and organization. Generally, leadership is strong and wants to look out for employees first and foremost. Great independence at work and in projects.... Benefits, pay and rewards are outstanding.

Cons

Some of the leadership appears to have gotten there simply due to tenure, rather than alignment with company values (employee's first). Has been a recent shift to more bottom line focus, but hasn't... been to the detriment of employee experience (yet).

Advice to Management

Escalate those that are truly deserving and show the right leadership qualities that align with the organization, not just those that have been around a long time.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

Pros

Workday is an amazing company and has really invested in their employees. There are lots of benefits such as exercise studio, free snacks, fitness expenses etc. but that isn't really what makes the... place great. There are more than 1200 employees now, but it still feels like a small company as everyone is so friendly. The senior leadership in the Dublin office is great, and you really feel like they care. This is the least hierarchal place I've ever worked - managers and directors are amazing and usually great craic. They make a real effort at diversity and inclusion, and there are always tonnes of charity events and programmes to help the local community. There's a lot of fun in the office, with lots of opportunities to make friends by joining book clubs, running clubs etc. Workday is killing it this year - #1 Best Place to Work in Ireland, #3 in Europe, winner of Best Graduate Employer in Ireland.

Cons

Workday is an American tech company so it's unsurprising that a lot of colleagues are based in the US, but there is the usual feeling of the US team looking at Dublin like it is a bit of a backwater.... Accommodations are made for meetings etc with the West Coast, but a lot of the VPs seem totally culturally unaware about international people in the team, and it feels like recognition and promotion often go to colleagues based in the HQ in California rather than in EMEA.

Advice to Management

Amazing place to work, but better cultural awareness around the EMEA team would create a more solid team environment. European people don't usually ask a lot of questions in meeting. That's not... through a lack of engagement, but because we understand presentations just fine without additional explanations. At a recent summit a C-suite leader referred to the EMEA team as the 'offshore team' - that's not how we see ourselves!
