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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great stock and Employee purchase program. Great break room with free coffee, soda, juice, tons of difference snacks, food in the fridge and free Einsteins bagels every single morning.

    Cons

    Things change drastically, way too often and once you’ve been able to get a grip on those changes, they change again. The Corporate Sales Development department in particular is forcing its way to becoming a call center. It is no longer prospect driven it is now activity driven. It doesn’t matter if you’re hitting, or in my case, exceeding your quarterly quota within the first month of it. If you are not meeting the leadership placed requirements of calls during their “Power hours” you will not be recognized or recommended to get promoted or change roles. They purposely hire young kids fresh out of college with no prior job experience and pay them a decent base pay plus commission so that they can mold the kids to their way. They want “yes” people who say yes to any changes even if they are terrible ones. The minute you speak your mind about how wrong pushing these changes on people is they start treating you differently, and the difference is VERY evident and even uncomfortable. They will praise the person with 100 dials a day and 30% of quota and use them as an example of what is expected while the person with 20 dials a day and 130% of quota gets told they “are not performing.” Its truly sad because as a company is truly an amazing company. I would recommend working at Workday in any other department but CSD. They dont accept people who have their own style and experience in sales development that works. You won’t be appreciated.

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

    Pros

    Handling of Coronavirus outbreak extremely impressive and proactive.

    Cons

    - Arrogant workforce - Inability to handle payroll and taxation affairs appropriately - 0/10 Marketing Dept - 0/10 Business Development Dept - Extremely complicated, convoluted and inept approach to sales territories and execution - Tedious, cumbersome levels of bureaucracy at all levels - “Not My Job” syndrome is highly prevalent and is everywhere you look at Workday. This is the single biggest problem in this organisation - Sub-optimal sales teams - incompetence rife across sales organisation - Atrocious commission structure

    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, and it's a stable job Unlimited PTO, and in general you can take time off whenever you need it

    Cons

    The company is coming off a hyper-growth phase, and it seems like the company committed to too many things and didn't hire in the right spots, middle management seems really stretched, and so engineers are stretched as well
