      Unbelievable Work Environment

      Pros

      Great support from everyone on my team. Since you learn Workday's proprietary languages (XO and YP) everyone on your team can help you and understand what it's like having to learn it. I thought it was going to be another "fake" American tech giant company, but I really feel like everyone here is happy and genuine. My first day I was set up completely without any issues gaining access to anything. Meetings are only held when it makes sense, and we use our videos so you actually see the people you are working with. You get meaningful messages and gifts from the company (extra days off, food & sweets, high quality backpacks, tech equipment, gym memberships, events..) I'll honestly never leave.

      Cons

      XO and YP are Workday's proprietary languages and if you plan on jumping ship in the future without having kept up to date on the other languages you know, you may feel lacking in experience. But they make it very clear to you what you're signing up for.

      Pros

      The response to the pandemic was to stop, breath and think about employees and their families first. Company is very transparent and share a surprising amount of strategic info with all employees. Interns and grads are part of the team like anyone else and receive a dedicated programmes. Everyone also received extra days off this summer...

      Cons

      The rapid growth makes everybody busy with their work and interviewing future colleagues.
