    I worked at Workday (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours
    Work from home option
    Office is in a good location and is very modern
    Smart employees
    Lots of opportunities to develop different skill sets
    Options to get involved in projects outside of day-to-day work
    Free snacks
    Frequent hackathons
    Plenty of company events
    Share options makes your contract very competitive
    Good experience working with U.S teams
    Very few managers micro manage (from what I've seen)

    Cons

    The more senior developers on the scrum team have very little time due to a large number of meetings
    It can be slow to get code committed to master

    Advice to Management

    Refine strategic initiatives among managers more before getting developers involved

    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

    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!
