I worked at Workday as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

There is a good reason Workday is voted the best company to work for in the Bay Area. The culture there makes working a great pleasure. Everyone is friendly and willing to help. Employees are fun and intelligent people. Additionally, they are doing some really cool work in the cloud. Great exposure for developers.

Cons

Working in Pleasanton is not exactly like working in SF.

    I have been working at Workday full-time

    Pros

    Much of the executive management are fantastic and have great ideas / experience. The company has lots of perks that make it an enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    Nearly zero opportunity for advancement regardless of what you do, how well you do it, or how long you've been there. Stock options are pretty much non-existent. Extremely frustrating on how little are shared with the employees in general when some folks consistently receive extra. Pay scale is below market standards and raises are non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a strong look at the employees and solicit feedback. Many are dissatisfied with lack of growth potential. Most importantly - share the options...... In what universe does it make sense that only VP's and higher get all the options. Some brand new employees have 5 times the number of options as employees who have been there for twice as long....
