"Bait and Switch"

Corporate Sales Development (Former Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

ProsDisruptive 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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good break after graduating from UC Berkeley

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

    I have been working at Workday

    Pros: Laid back attitude, allowed to work from home sometimes, good work-life balance are all great parts of working at Workday. Also, the company is successful… Cons: Limited exposure to widely used frameworks and development tools--this is especially true for Application Developers. On the Tools team you get more exposure, but it's… Advice to Senior Management: Give your employees enough work to feel like they are productive. Don't be a nervous nanny, nobody… More
