    I worked at Workday

    Pros

    Disruptive technology Impressive brand name customers Top leadership well respected in the industry IPO on the horizon Chance to make a mark on a promising new company

    Cons

    The term "bait and switch" comes to mind when thinking about my experience at Workday. I was sold on the idea of joining up with a hot company that values building and grooming talent. That is the whole premise of what Workday's very own product is supposed to provide...isn't it? I was promised that there would be ample opportunities to explore different areas within the organization and grow my career. Soon after... joining the team, I came to the harsh realization that was not the case. The leadership of the sales development team quickly proved that they make empty promises. The idea of "talent management" and helping employees to grow is nothing more than a feel-good slogan on the front page of the website. Employees are not treated in a respectful and adult manner, and are openly criticized in front of peers. Team morale only continues to decrease, and there is no improvement in sight.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to continue to attract top talent, you better start taking a look at how well the current talent gets treated by those you put in management positions.

    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    Workday is a great company, has a phenomenal product, and is for the most part very well managed. It also has very good values that it tries to embody in every aspect of their business and how they treat employees

    Cons

    The values I just mentioned don't seem to be equally carried out in every department. The inside sales department is run in a fashion that doesn't represent the values the owners work so hard at implementing, which is a shame. Also, there seems to be rampant nepotism going on.

    I have been working at Workday

    Pros

    Great core values Company is striving to be the best Leader in technology innovation The software helps our customers save time and money Top executives truly care about employees IPO

    Cons

    Interview process focuses on next steps after CSD, this rarely occurs Marketing takes all the credit for pipeline development which is very inaccurate Hit your goals quick or you're gone No true career path into outside sales "Fun" place to work

    Advice to Management

    Workday is a talent management solution which allows top performers to excel in the organization. Maybe Workday should start using our own software to manage the sales group.
