Quality Assurance Engineer / QA Lead (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – October 10, 2018
I love working here, its great. Good compensation, great work life balance, stocks, good snacks, bagels, drinks, unlimited PTO, and career growth opportunities. On site gym and cafeteria but wish the food was free.
Senior Associate Accountant (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT 84111 – September 10, 2018
Currently the finance department is micro managed, and veers far from the standard Workday Culture. The culture found in Pleasanton (headquaters) is 180 Degrees different, and in a good way. There is favoritism, little room for change/growth, and many promotions come from outside the company.
Business Systems Analyst Intern (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – August 24, 2018
Workday is the spot to work if you are an undergrad or a new graduate. They really take care of their employees and are always willing to help others from different organizations on a variety of subjects.
Good culture, Proprietary language may make for lack of advancement
Associate Application Development Intern (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – May 10, 2018
I really enjoyed interning at workday. My team was collaborative and I felt like everyone was valued. We where fairly compensated, however the proprietary application development language makes it easy to feel trapped into staying in a single role and you have to work extra hard to keep skills sharp and remain versitile
Talent Business Analyst (contract) (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – April 16, 2018
Perhaps it was just the team that I worked with, but the management gave little to no guidance or feedback. Teams felt like we were siloed and didn't work well together. Cut-throat meetings. As a contract worker we were not able to participate in certain activities or events so it made for a sense of separation from the team I worked with.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – April 4, 2018
Had a great time working for Workday! It’s a great company if you drink the Kool-Aid and believe what they’re selling. For the most part, I enjoyed the challenges of my undefined position but what I mostly enjoyed was collaborating on projects with my co-workers (peers and managers). However, I disliked people in higher positions such as VPs and SVPs. Not all of them but the ones that I worked for or came in contact with were off-putting. They acted like they’re these “above everyone else” celebrities. Ugh, give me a break! That’s not leadership!
Workplace Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 26, 2018
As Workday continues to grow, it is a force to be reckoned with. I have enjoyed my 1.5 years here more than I ever thought I would fresh out of college. At Workday I have been able to work on all kinds of projects and become a voice that is heard, no matter how young or inexperienced I am. I would recommend Workday to any of my friends or family, there is a reason why it's always globally recognized as a great place to work.
Free lunches, great culture, endless snacks, wonderful coworkers, open management.
Senior Program Manager (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – February 17, 2018
I did have a good experience at Workday. The Director was trying to create a PMO organization, but did not have the experience to do so. In my attempts to provide my previous experience I was repeatedly ignored. PMO organization was never established.
Senior Performance Engineer (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – February 15, 2018
Mid management is really poor, lots of inexperienced managers who love to micro-manage and stress the employees. Work pressure is too much and unnecessary at times. Advise for management, do not micro-manage and focus on innovation and problem solving.
A grind with little variance from day-to-day tasks
Corporate Sales Development (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City – January 27, 2018
The benefits and pay were good. The job role was a grind in sales as a CSD. I could not escape the sports culture in the sales department. It's all anyone ever talked about. Sports sports sports sports. Sports. More sports. Hey...sports! Didn't like the drinking culture...lots of cantinas at work. Sort of weird. "Hey have some drinks and, you know...drive home!" Not good.
