    - Social events and startup attitude seem forced for such a large company
    - App development platform is very slow and cumbersome to use

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I think they have created an excellent product and a great place to work, they are underutilizing their engineering staff. This obviously affects different people differently, but there is no real pressure to push yourself. Thsis is a severe mismanagment of the high-potential talent. At best, it leads to suboptimal performance; at worst, it leads to boredom and loss of talent.

    Also, the training is far too cushy and extensive. Research has demonstrated time and time again the superior effectiveness of on-the-job training, but Workday instead forces employees to attend

    Pros

    Super smart, engaged and fun people who are really passionate about the products and their customers

    Cons

    Growing very quickly so sometimes things seem a bit scattered. It's still a start up -- albeit a very sophisticated start up.
