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

    Pros

    Excellent culture and benefits, very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere

    Cons

    It can feel like you are stuck in Application Development using a proprietary language The language makes development slower than it could be for Apps teams Pay is OK, they put a lot of emphasis on stock-based compensation, which doesn't vest until the year after you receive it Tendency to reinvent the wheel with internal tools

    Advice to Management

    Give teams more scope to use the right tools for the job

    "Past its prime"

    I worked at Workday

    Pros

    Good products, but bloated code base is making it harder to deliver new features. Generally happy and patient customers who seem invested in our success. Lower stress environment than other companies like us despite growth. Good place for early career people to get a few years at a reputable company.

    Cons

    ‘Great Place to Work” is more religion than fact. Mediocre comp and advancement potential, too much old PeopleSoft deadwood in senior management with no real vision. New hires are not the quality needed, just people who live in the East Bay willing to take a pay cut for a shorter commute. 97% customer sat is a myth, based on selective sampling.

    Advice to Management

    Get some leaders in who know what it takes to run a large company and deal with the challenges of scale.
