    Pros

    Genuinely some amazing people Great place for graduates to get on the ladder Shares are a great investment plan Good benefits Ok Salary Internal mobility to get away from the proprietary language Agile coaches to advance teams

    Cons

    Ruinous middle management in some teams. Policy of 'owning your own career' while well intended at the top, is get out of jail free card for middle management to not do their job. While there are some amazing people, rapid growth led to the original culture becoming diluted. Poor work / life balance. Proprietary language limits external career opportunities. Incidents of bullying and bad managerial conduct are...

    Advice to Management

    Middle management: Work hard to make your teams lives easier, don't make your team work hard to make your life easier. Be honest. Stop giving yourself excuses and be better. Senior Management: Cast a cold eye on the reality of things, take action and drop the enforced positivity policy.

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Credible senior leaders, true customer focus, stock, snack programme. Supposedly the number one place to work in Ireland - I'm sure it is for many. Exciting revenue/stock growth story.

    Cons

    The employee experience is completely dependent on the team - examples of terrible middle management are increasingly and openly visible. There is a pretty solid ceiling to career progression for many teams in Dublin, and there is a lot of talk around internal mobility but I have observed managers work actively against employee movement. A lot of lip-service around employee led career experiences - for a bad manager this...

    Pros

    They treat the employee as best as they can, really good work-life balance, and amazing benefits!

    Cons

    Working on a proprietary technology that is technically a "mess": not easy to maintain, not easy to develop with.

    Advice to Management

    Dedicate more time to let developers improve the existing codebase!

    Pros

    There 4 years The company crazy growth in Ireland has only brought more benefits and dedication to culture and employees. Pushing on candidate experience and diversity, but not in a tick the box way- more like: let's make it even better because cause we're proud of the company. The interns get a full program with a dedicated team in charge, and are hired after graduation. Grads have career dev program. Experienced...

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good snack program, drinks and pizza gatherings, other company parties. Nice modern office easily accessible by public transport. Option to work remotely once in a while (but not full-time remote.) People aren't too strict about time so you can be flexible to a degree. There are some genuinely good people who work here and they embody the "Workday culture" the hype is all about. Mostly they're older employees. New...

    Cons

    Pay is lower than comparable jobs in other companies. Compensation includes stocks up to a cap each year, but they're more trouble than it's worth. Some roles have 100% remote management which means people who are far removed from the Workday Dublin realities make all the decisions. Not all of these decisions are good. No possibility to work remotely full-time. No commute stipend, extremely limited parking facilities...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback and start pruning the bad people at the top. They're making bad decisions, demoralizing or bullying the people who work under them and promote their buddies instead of merit-based promotions. One of our core values is "employees", That means more than parties and snacks. Otherwise these people will run your company into the ground.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits. Ok salary. Bunch of smart colleagues. Relaxed environment. Good opportunity to learn corporation's trick and tips.

    Cons

    Proprietary language, lot's of fake promises on career progress or side projects using common languages and tools. Easy to quickly forget what you learned during your career, I ensure you will spend the last 6 months of your employment there studying during the nights/weekends in order to get ready for the coming interview. Catastrophic middle management, I'is a corrupted club, if you are well connected your life...

    Advice to Management

    Don't look at people as just a way to get your next promotion. Main reason why you were hired was not just to get the big stock and travel a lot but concretely believe to be a real servant leader, care about people, engage them maximizing their productivity. All this in the interest of the company.
