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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great stock and Employee purchase program. Great break room with free coffee, soda, juice, tons of difference snacks, food in the fridge and free Einsteins bagels every single morning.

    Cons

    Things change drastically, way too often and once you’ve been able to get a grip on those changes, they change again. The Corporate Sales Development department in particular is forcing its way to becoming a call center. It is no longer prospect driven it is now activity driven. It doesn’t matter if you’re hitting, or in my case, exceeding your quarterly quota within the first month of it. If you are not meeting the leadership placed requirements of calls during their “Power hours” you will not be recognized or recommended to get promoted or change roles. They purposely hire young kids fresh out of college with no prior job experience and pay them a decent base pay plus commission so that they can mold the kids to their way. They want “yes” people who say yes to any changes even if they are terrible ones. The minute you speak your mind about how wrong pushing these changes on people is they start treating you differently, and the difference is VERY evident and even uncomfortable. They will praise the person with 100 dials a day and 30% of quota and use them as an example of what is expected while the person with 20 dials a day and 130% of quota gets told they “are not performing.” Its truly sad because as a company is truly an amazing company. I would recommend working at Workday in any other department but CSD. They dont accept people who have their own style and experience in sales development that works. You won’t be appreciated.

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

    Pros

    During my time here I had the opportunity to travel to my area and work with some great people on my team. The regional sales team I worked with were always super helpful and willing to talk to me and help me get comfortable in the role. All of the people I met outside of CSD were amazing and really showed a passion for what they do and the company. The company itself is really well run and has tremendous benefits and snack program that was great when you're pinching pennies and trying to save some money. Overall a great company

    Cons

    Buckle up gang... As you can infer from my title the management staff seems to be better trained in lifting heavy weights and flexing their so-called "muscles" than they are in the area of leading. There is this false hope that there will definitely be a spot for you after your 2 years, but not even the management can get a job anywhere else in the company. Like any good sales staff, you are a bunch of trained monkeys who make dials dials dials! Have fun with the power hour!!! Nothing motivates you more than a bunch of gym bros yelling power hour via slack. Additionally, there seemed to be very little constructive criticism until things get so bad that you are put on a performance plan. In summary, this place is filled with false promises that no one in there can keep and they are just looking to trap you for as long as they can until you get smart enough to bail. With all the tech companies in the area, I would highly recommend looking somewhere that may be able to back up their claims of having great success at moving up in the company after your time here. If you are unlucky enough to get a job there at least fight for some equal pay. Chances are that chump next to you is making 15 K more than you.

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

    Pros

    Workday is an amazing company. The culture of the company as a whole is remarkable. Compensation for this role is very strong.

    Cons

    Workday is an amazing company, however this department is a black hole. They have no real plan to get CSDs (even the great ones) out of this department into other sales roles. The management team is more like a gossiping high school girl click rather than a leadership group.

    Pros

    If you hit your numbers you will not be micromanaged. You have to earn the trust from your manager to work your own schedule. If you work hard you will be taken care of.

    Cons

    Some managers can micromanage... just the luck of the draw.
