I have been working at Workday

Pros

Great Technology
Great Vision
Fun People to work with
Strive to do your best

Cons

Inexperience Management
Decisions come from one person with little room for feedback
No Career Path - after entry level - you are stuck in a path to no where
Internal fighting between development (engineering) and product management (business)
Everyone reports to one person -- that one person has no time to talk and eventually ignores you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you plan to keep good people and be the BEST, then you need to start to clean house from the TOP... the people you promote to management aren't really good managers -- You provide HR applications... it's about time you develop your own HR team and create solid careers paths in development and in other areas... right now, for example, your financial development team is headed by one person and everyone reports to one person... no growth for anyone on the team -- that one person has absolute control... not the best way to run your engineering team.

    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

    Team mentality; very positive working environment.

    Cons

    Onboarding was difficult - not a lot of structure/formality. Hard to meet/get to know coworkers. But, I think this has to do with the fact that they in such a big growth phase right now and they're trying to get procedures in place to handle this.
