      Great Company....

      Pros

      Great Company, great culture, best HCM technology on the market...

      Cons

      Worst (net new) sales job ever as very few reps make their number due to small account lists and poor planning by management. Despite constant churn, management continues to hire unsuspecting sales reps who inevitably leave. If you insist on joining Workday, make sure you are selling to the 'customer base' and NOT 'net new'. Pay split (base/variable) is not adequate given you might close 1 deal per year if you are lucky.

      Ask a lot of questions when you get interviewed..

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Free swag, free food, a lot of fun activities. Group activities - night outs...etc. A lot of great technology to work with. You'll get the support you need if you're lined up with a manager who's no lazy.

      Cons

      couple of slackers who seem to put on a show that they're busy but are really not. In competent ones can waste your time. During your interview, make sure you ask a lot of questions so you can weed out if it's for you. If you're looking to just get paid and be a sheep, then you'll slip on by.

      Interview process review

      Aug 31, 2021 - Customer Success Manager

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      None that I can think of

      Cons

      Went through four interviews and was ghosted. No follow up, no emails, no calls, nothing. I'm fine with not being a good fit but for an HR software company, your process leaves a lot to be desired

      Overall ok company, but some times it could be cheap

      Apr 21, 2021 - Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly working environment and colleagues Ok overall compensation and benefits Standing up on important social issues

      Cons

      Some times, it could be cheap. The performance stock is cut in half due to the stock price is more than doubled, this could be understandable to some degree. But compensation raise is so little (may not apply to all though), well, if the company really cares about its employees, why it doesn't give good (by reviews from managers and colleagues) employee a reasonable raise? Just to save a few stocks? With the company always achieves >20% growth, what can you say about it... Effectively, it is a cut, so we will see if we worth much else where...
