YoE: 4 years
I’m vastly underpaid, and I haven’t learned anything valuable (thanks Workday!). I’ve been grinding out LC and I’m pretty decent at it, but I absolutely fold once they start asking about System Design or like real engineering challenges on the job (Workday uses a GUI based programming language that abstracts away 80% of development). I just haven’t learned anything enough to be considered for senior roles.
It’s so incredibly frustrating and demoralizing. I don’t hate coding, but it feels like a chore when I’m starting from the bottom when I should know much more by now.
- Amadeus Trick2gStart from the basics. Buy the course grokking the system design interview at educative.io. Study slowly and keep an even pace and you should feel more confident after 2-3 months.
- Workday f56zh5Are you in the right team ? Join the OMS, ML, Data or other Tools team and there is so much to learn at Workday.
- Micro Focus pqx9I just had an onsite at workday for an SDE position, and am wondering why you didn’t learn anything there? I heard they’re trying to move away from the propriety tech stack, is this true?
- Oracle / Eng donedealI would suggest read how workday system is designed. Then start reading about how they handle server side cashing, paging, load balancing. That will give you confidence by knowing how things work in your company. Then do system design course on educative.io totally worth of $80.
Also, know this competitive programming is totally different than what you do at the job on daily basis. So, don’t feel like you know nothing, look towards leetcode like you want to learn and be good at competitive programming.
