    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!

    I worked at Workday full-time

    Pros

    I had an excellent manager who became a mentor and coach to me Amazing sales & presales conferences that showed Workday leaders really care Encouraging culture, colleagues always willing to share their knowledge and help each other grow. Great compensation, generous stock awards We really cared about our customers

    Cons

    As with a constantly growing public company, it can be very demanding - regular late nights and weekends worked. Always had PTO approved, but didn't feel comfortable taking it (sometimes canceled it) because so many demos with a short amount of time to prepare

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. More great hires to reduce night/weekend work.
