    I worked at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stock, company events, breakfast, easy-going.

    Cons

    Zero innovation, extremely boring, a group of toxic people, degrading over time, no lunch, software does not scale, leaders are narrow-minded - block any initiatives, a few confirmed racist managers, they exist only because of no competition on the market.

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

    Pros

    Money Was Good But Don't Let This Tempt You, it just isn't worth it.

    Cons

    My previous review was removed Probably due to a complaint because my review was initially reviewed but the truth always hurts. I will write another review because I want People to be aware of what it's like working for Workday in the Dublin Data Centre. I worked in the Dublin Data Centre and if you are thinking of working here then don't let money tempt you because it's not a good working environment. I was victimised by other members of staff and they go around sneakily behind your back telling lies to management, delighted with the fact that I was completely powerless to do anything about it because as you know you have 0 rights as an employee in this 6 month probationary period and I think it's absolutely disgusting to be treated like this under those circumstances that people can take delight in potentially destroying someone's life knowing during probation there's absolutely nothing you can do about it and a month before Christmas, tossed out like a piece of dirt after breaking my back in those 6 months trying to make a good impression but that didn't matter to management because they took the word of those that were there longer and rather than trying to sort things out he took the decision to toss me out like a piece of trash fired and marched out of the building, humiliated and then all he could say was that he was sorry it didn't work out. The work itself was decent but they are very behind the times as regards ticketing system, it's just not suited to Data Centre work and it's frustrating, there's far too much admin to do before you get near a server for instance having to chase people in endless slack channels to get server down time. Their logistics is an absolute joke, (you are logistics ) you have to order parts and send them back, arrange courier etc, Parts come in and not asset tagged and no location entered into the system because they have absolutely no logistics system, yes, you wouldn't believe it but this company has no logistics system other than a spreadsheet!!!!! the spreadsheet that's supposed to reflect the parts in stock but half the time it's wrong, sometimes they haven't a clue where the likes of Networking equipment is for instance then there's panic. Yes they are very very backward. They have 2 buildings on site and deliveries usually some to one site and you are made drag heavy items to the other site, they have no Forklift or any other means of transporting heavy items throughout the site and are not happy when you request basic equipment like this. I have been left severely depressed after the way I was treated in this Workday Dublin Data Centre, it could have been different, it should have been different but it wasn't so think very carefully before applying for a job here my advice is to look elsewhere. Workday Preach about Workday Employees coming first but this is complete nonsense you are treated just like any other employee anywhere else.
