    I have been working at Workday full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great executive team, focus on employees - Nice people - Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Inexperience middle management treat team members poorly but turn around with poker faces when upper management. Employees are not your kids that you can scold whenever your mood tells you to. Drive workload and blame team members when things go wrong. Refuse to take any responsibilities themselves. Weekly Best Workday Pulse Survey won't work when you have a small team. That means easy identification and... retribution, either you leave or suck it up. Some group have high turnovers. Tough to see Workday is going this way.

    Advice to Management

    Management training needs to be every year, not once a few years. Some people just forgot how they suppose to treat people.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free snacks. Health Benefits. Unlimited PTO.

    Cons

    High turnover. Favoritism. Nepotism. Toxic culture. Constant and multiple reorgs in a quarterly basis to get rid of people. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Aneel and Dave you need to dedicate some time to investigate what is really happening in Workday. Employees are being threatened and forced to quit or shuffled to other roles they were not hired for. Managers steals knowledge and ideas and then take the credit. Constant reorgs are only decreasing the morale of the team, causing them to lose focus and at the end most of them will leave. The culture and values you... promote constantly are not really reflected in the fabric of the organization. Some toxic managers are untouchable and the good people are being let go consistently. It would be great if you start evaluating to have a bonus structure and compensate more with base vs equity. Your company is becoming to gain a really bad reputation. Was this company not created to be different than Oracle?
