Workday's reputation in the tech industry?

Its HR software is debatably mediocre. But as a post-IPO success with a notoriety for amazing culture, Workday doesn't seem to be mentioned here that often.

Does it still have a strong engineering reputation? If I decide to pursue other opportunities, will Workday be well known enough as a brand name to other employers?

    If you think our HR software is mediocre, you should see the competition.

      not that i disagree with you, but i wouldn’t say “everybody else sucks” is going to inspire confidence in people who already have doubts about the product

    They have a good work culture, mediocre work, average pay, easy interview. The folks are very cool and they are not crooked geeks who ask DP problems in interviews. If you are looking for a good work life balance and culture, this is one of the good place. May be a good place to retire :)

    I had an offer from them which did not even match to what i get right now. I don’t think they are aggressive on the offer or even trying hard to negotiate with you.

      I really like the phrase 'crooked geeks' 😀

    Offers you get depend on what group you interview with and how well you do. A few groups here have top of the line engineers that came here from Netflix, Apple, Uber, etc - but Workday is big enough that there are also pockets of people doing less impressive work.

    The interview was laughably easy and the offer was pretty bad

    It’s alright. Not big money, but chill culture except student. Tier 2 and rising.

    I know a few folks who jumped ship and make 170-180k plus sizeable RSUs plus sign on. Sr Software Engineer role.
    Don't know about their tech or engineering reputation but they seem pretty cutting edge, but at least in the cloud group their interview seems a bit tougher than what others said above. Again, was told 2nd hand.
