    I worked at Workday full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great culture, great people - really good sense of teamwork, people want to help out
    - Great modern office space
    - Great perks; shares, gym allowance, healthcare etc

    Cons

    - Company has grown so quickly that at times it can be a bit disorganised
    - Proprietary language that's used to build the product is very restrictive to building a great product
    - On the Product Management side, there was little room for innovation as the roadmap became an list of items built for customers who shouted the loudest rather than strategic priorities

    I have been working at Workday full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks, amazing colleagues, career path is clearly defined, great snacks.

    Cons

    There are none. This is the only place I have worked where I can honestly say there are no negatives. Some people complain about not having free food everyday but the feeling of self entitlement and being over privilaged is few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great company, extremely nice people, work on interesting projects and for strategic customers. Flexible working conditions and in general a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Expect to be paid between 30-40% less in Dublin than other Workday office and “work from home” locations in Europe. Annual salary reviews generally aligned with inflation, instead they focus on RSUs.

    I worked at Workday full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Facilities: snacks, showers, bike facilities and location. Market leading HR product. Massive success in implementing our product.

    Cons

    Pretentious. At times it feels the culture is only based on being "the opposite of other companies". Many old-timers stopped caring about integrating new blood and new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking you are the best. "Best company to work for" is not a good measure. Look at your retention rate.

    More focus on growth challenges, scaling

    I have been working at Workday full-time (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
