    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I could gush about how much I love working at Workday, but the simple fact is I will look back (in 30 years) at my time and say it was the single best work experience of my life!

    Cons

    Do I really need one?

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

    Pros

    Great senior leadership, fun company events. All employees are invited to company meetings. Workday is leading provider of ERP in the cloud, stock is performing well, keep it up.

    Cons

    Many of the old reviews regarding the CSD environment from 2012 remain true well past their date. Senior management may not have any idea how bad it really became, or just didn't care; bait and switch. Limited career advancement from CSD, most after their CSD tenure end up in positions filled with recent graduates. Some have made it into very interesting roles, the majority went into other support roles not related to prospecting for new customers. Long story short: Your CSD skills have little value in other areas of the company. (Not worth it for all the grunt work that you're enslaved to do.) Especially if you have to do it in SLC. If you're interested in 2+ years of cold calling, only to find yourself rotating around to a somewhat related support role, be my guest. If you're passionate about sales, and you want a much more linear and logical career path, salesforce.com might be a better choice.

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management and senior employees take a genuine interest in your success and future, as well as your current job satisfaction. Company culture is unparalleled. Free bagels every day, plus fruit twice/week. The people at Workday are laid back, genuine people, who are ambitious and driven to see the company succeed. We are led by Dave Duffield, whose down-to-earth nature and core values resonate throughout the company.

    Cons

    So much fast-paced growth creates a lot of shifts within the organization. Particularly within my department, there are shifts on a quarterly basis. Some people respond well to these shifts and others would prefer more continuity. Also, no employer match for the 401k (at this time)

    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.

    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.

    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
