Application Development Intern (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – September 21, 2017
Great place to work at, but applications development in general uses proprietary language. This creates a lack of mobility later on, as the skills learned and used here are not always transferable to another company or workplace.
IT Analyst (Intern) (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – June 14, 2017
Spent most of the day imaging laptops, or managing IT inventory Great work environment with many perks (free snack rooms and unlimited beverages) Very friendly Management Always looking for ways to move you up in the company!
Sourcing Specialist (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – May 2, 2017
I enjoyed working for Workday and all it stood for. The company in general is wonderful. My previous manager was supportive and tried to encourage growth, team was very united. Current lead not very supportive or available. Current atmosphere in HR is very stressed and secretive, everyone out for themselves not like before. The company itself is wonderful.
I are able to be as productive as possible under own dirction

Workday offers a fun environment where people are passionate about what they are doing and who really believe in the product. You are constantly learning, each day is different and the culture is really what makes Workday such a great place to work.
Application Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – February 28, 2017
Culture is employee orientated and is a great place to work if you're in the right team with the right manager. Quality of management has been watered down since the enormous growth the last year or two.
Software Application Engineer (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – February 21, 2017
Great company with amazing workplace culture, great work/life balance and very enjoyable. Most of the people are willing to drop whatever it is that they're doing and to turn around and help you out when you're facing difficulties.
I've worked for other software giants, and no one compares to Workday! Their comp and onboarding for sales rep is like nothing I've ever seen. The benefits dept is also making huge strides in the family leave policy for 2017. Can't say enough great things about Workday!!
Manager (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – July 13, 2016
Hiring spree has resulted in the standards falling especially for the way middle level managers have been hired. Many of the junior level managers to mid-level managers do not deserve to be managers in the company. This is fast becoming another Oracle.
Product Management (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – January 20, 2016
I was recruited by Workday and ended up relocating to Pleasanton from the east coast. I had hoped Workday a place where i could stay for quite a while but ultimately this was not a good fit for me. As an SME with over 20 years experience in my industry I was very anxious to develop and delivery best of breed functionality into my product area. Although the developers, qa and documentation people were great, I found to be the middle and upper management inflexible and stuck in their old "ERP" ways given most or previous Peoplesoft or Oracle employees. If you have background from a best of breed solution and want to work for Workday make sure you get a demo of the product before accepting a position at Workday.
Use of Agile development methodology, DEV/QA team members
Account Executive Large Enterprise (Former Employee) – Atlanta – October 13, 2015
Working at Workday was complete go to market strategy for a subsection of prospects. This required multiple marketing strategies and specific communication cadences to help deliver the Workday message.
