      Don’t accept a role from Professional Services Consulting in Ireland

      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.

      Good company but no growth option and long working days

      Mar 29, 2018 - Senior Software Engineer in Dublin, Dublin

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      • Decent salary, stock option, ESPP available • Peer-level colleagues are very good, friendly, open to new ideas • Good snack program • First, two year is really very exciting • Great company for college graduates

      Cons

      • Working days are very long, for a senior engineer position you can expect meetings with the USA till 7 pm (sometimes till 8). And day starts at 9 am. Too many meetings. • Career growth is very limited (if you have the ambition to grow in technical ladder, then this company is not for you) -- Some people already complained about favouritism (read other Glassdoor reviews). • Majority of the managers are good at talking and has less technical knowledge. As this company grows rapidly, this becomes a major issue. Management value people who is a good story teller. • With the growth of the company, they are becoming more process oriented. This is too much sometimes. • Dublin App dev team depends heavily on the USA. Dublin team don't have enough freedom for a technical decision (this is one of the reasons to have so many late night meetings). • After two years working as an application developer, your learning scope is very limited. Once you have worked in (almost) all xpresso frameworks, there is not much to learn and the job becomes less challenging. • Technical interview processes are very easy this is one of the reason lots of candidates (who are not so good technically) got offers.

      Culture is everything, an office full of friendly faces and few ego's

      Pros

      They trust their employees, from day one they trust you to do your job and do the right thing. They are giving me a huge amount of opportunity and trust me to stay with them, which I have every intention of doing. Really heavily investing in my training and education with no contract commitments required from me. Really rigorous interview process for aptitude and cultural fit, it would be easy for a company growing so fast to drop their standards but they don't. Great company strategy, I really feel like our executive management have strategy down to a tee and and the work we are doing is well directed and making the company very profitable. With generous share options you feel like you are part of the company's massive success. Amazing offices, everything you could want. The snack program is just the best with a huge range of fruit delivered every day from the markets. Company parties and cultural events occur all the time. Their on-boarding process is top notch. I feel like I had the tools needed to start providing value right out of the door. Very quickly fit into my team. Such a great office location in Smithfield. Loads of opportunity to travel, generous number of holidays. Which as a young professional wanting to see the world is great. Great support system, multiple points of contact in the company for support, guidance and advice. Very little / no politics. It is just so refreshing to see a company with such strong morals, and good intentions to do so well competitively. Workday is on to a winning formula.

      Cons

      Salary isn't the most competitive & There is a lot of technical debt as a result of having to scale so quickly, every rule has multiple exceptions. (This isn't necessarily a con as it is what the work is.)

      Pros

      Great company which focuses on core value of customers, employees, fun and integrity.

      Cons

      As the company grows, there are more structure and new processes which eroded some of the value with new blood introduced.
