I recently got an offer from Workday, Pleasanton. I got a good vibe after attending onsite interview. But i'd like to learn more about work culture, worklife balance. Can someone share your experiences?

    Doesn’t workday pay super well also?

    I’ve heard nothing but good things about them yet feel like its a secret that 90% of tech doesn’t know or talk about

      Is this a sarcasm? We’re well known as a super low pay company. 😓

      I can say the compensation depends. If you join as a "Software Development Engineer" instead of "Software Application Engineer", the compensation is not bad. Not as high as FNG, but not too low as well. Good refereshers and stock has grown well last year.

      Your sales reps make 250k-300K+ before stock or signon, I’d say thats pretty good

    Workday definitely under pays, but the work life balance is verrrrry chill. If you are some super ambitious hardass, workday is probably not for you. If you are trying to raise a family and live an actual life on a good salary, workday is for you

    I interviewed and I have close friends who work there. Pets are allowed and work life balance they rave about! The culture is full of nice people and honestly quite jealous of you!

      ^ this is the info I was looking for. I did a Blind search for Workday and I did not see 1 bad comment about the company. It was almost too good to be true...

      HR and all promote the "Best Place to Work" as a heaven everyone is trying to get in but in reality, it's just another sweatshop many are trying to get out if they still have marketable skills to find a job outside.

      If it's too good to be true, IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!

      DM me if you want more details!

    I would say that work culture depends on the team you join. In general, workday is employee centric. People are real nice and way less politics than anywhere I have worked prior. Work life balance is great, but also depends on your direct VP and their style of execution. Comp varies big time across the company, depending on the value you and your experience brings to the company. I joined relatively recently and love it so far. Good luck!

    For one, people complain there are lots of bad managers. If your manager is bad, how good can your work life balance be???

    Regarding WLB, what you said is definitely not true across most of the company!

    Just curious - what would you say is the percentage of your given RSU in comparison to your annual salary?

    • Workday iaaV08hdjs
      10-25% rsu for first year up to 40% when you're there for 4 years

    Work life balance is verrrrry good at workday, makes up for their lower pay. It's also cause workday is in the East Bay, not expensive ass Sf/silicon valley
