    I worked at Workday full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great software. Easy to present and a new way of doing business. Good culture at the US Head Office Campus in Pleasanton. Great group of talent.

    Cons

    The power of one is an overwhelm tag line. The Workday solutions bring other management transactional challenges. Does not live up to its reputation as a top employer. On-boarding experience was horrible and didn't provide the tools and knowledge to deliver efficiently in the first year ! originally, workday was a much better employer than Oracle and SAP. But they were corrupted by the arrival of manager from their competitors. And they wanted to bring their old employees.

    I have been working at Workday full-time

    Pros

    Workday(outside of Victoria office; outside of Mediacore acquisition) on its own is a phenomenal company! QA is taken very seriously by the rest of the company!

    Cons

    1) The Victoria office still operates as a small startup (Mediacore), while they reap the rewards of Workday. Sad! 2) They have no priorities in implementing QA into their workflow, unlike the rest of Workday. The Victoria office has over 60+ Devs and no QA.

    I have been working at Workday full-time

    Pros

    Kitchen, bagels, drinks, snacks, swags

    Cons

    It is a pseudo propriety software that is good at some HR areas, a lot of young kids are recruited to be exploited and brain washed in the name of culture. The power of one is a tag line but look any average implementation has over 15 integrations/interfaces to get simple tasks done and a crazy amount of manual work the customers take on, it is enough to put a dent on the power the software claim; built for the future is really true, because at some point in the future the customers might get a usable piece of software; the work environment is high on politics, if you on good terms with the management, there is no limits to mistakes or errors you can make;promotions are not on merits based, but who you are buddy with. This all sounds untrue if you are less than or a year into your career
