Pros: It's easy to use and it's so easy to navigate through the mobile site. It's so beneficial to be able to check my time card and look at my payroll information in the palm of my hands.

Cons: I don't like that I have to use my token app just to gain access to the site that links to my work account for payroll purposes. Not sure if it's maybe because of my company or if it's something that everyone has to do. Nonetheless it's inconvenient when I'm in a rush.

Overall: I use it almost all the time so I always know exactly what's going on when it comes to my payroll or time cards.

Pros: Workday is fairly easy to use. I do like the ability to login with your fingerprint on new cellular devices.

Cons: Workday gets overcomplicated very easily. I feel like there is too much going on in one place. Sometimes it moves slow and I have personally had frequent issues with check ins.

Comments: Great software and a decent price point. Good for non profits as well!

Pros: Workday has a lot of features and uses. We ran almost everything through it from personnel data, time tracking, reviews, forms and more. The possibilities are endless.

Cons: The backend of setting up certain features can be a bit cumbersome. Takes several people long hours to maintain and manage system.

Workday is one of the easiest and most user friendly human capital managements software.

Pros: It's very intuitive to use. A lot of human capital management softwares are not that easy to use. This one is very to the point and you can find things easily. It takes the guessing game out of the picture

Cons: There are a lot of clicks involved to get to certain places. It might not be that easy to use for someone who isn't technically savvy. If that's the case, having a simple walk through with a coworker on how to use it would be sufficient enough.

Pros: Allows you to pick up where you left off if you have to use it multiple times before being able to finalize goal updates for submission. Doesn't start you back up at the beginning where you would have to page forward to where you left off.

Cons: Had some minor quirks to get used to with indicating a goal was completed or still in progress, but nothing I didn't like about it specifically.

Overall: Made it easy to finalize the performance management goals at end of fiscal year.

Pros: I like the most about this is you can send the feedback request through same. Further it provides you to enter your career goals in the same along with it you can fill all you information of yourself and your dependents for availing benefits at one place. I also like the time off feature in it which is in hours, it gives an advantage to put half day leave.

Cons: There is nothing so far that I didn't like about the software. However, there should be a notification pop up system instead of mail which I think would be more interesting.

Overall: I get many benefits like sending feedbacks, requesting time off, know your pay scale and many more.

Comments: Workday's implementation of Service delivery feature/functionality related to Call Center's will help organization lower their cost by moving away from Salesforce CRM.

Pros: Workday is the leading cloud based ERP. Oracle and SAP have been late to the market when looking at the Higher Education Market.

Cons: Student Module needs additional features and functionality. Workday is about 2 years away from providing a complete SIS environment for the Higher Ed segment.

Pros: As an employee, I use Workday mostly to manage my goals and benefits elections. Workday makes these processes pretty simple for the most part and certainly streamlines them, giving me inbox reminders, etc.

Cons: While Workday does streamline certain activities, the software itself can be quite cumbersome. Sometimes the options are unintuitive, and the site can be difficult to navigate. That said, I haven't worked with competitor software, so I'm not certain how it stacks up next to those.

Comments: I have only been using Workday for a few months. After taking all of the integration courses and starting to build integrations I am reasonably comfortable with the back end but no front end knowledge which is required to test at least the inbound integrations. Be prepared to spend days researching certain topics before coming up with answers. I recommend hiring a consultant to help in house developers learn the tools and functionality if you decide to go with Workday.

Pros: -Basic functionality for end users is intuitive and easy to use. -Lots of options for integration with third parties -Easy to use, custom, report capability with the option to expose reports as services (RaaS). -Fairly easy to learn and use add-in for Eclipse for complicated integrations (Workday Studio).

Cons: -Training is expensive and is basically required to do an implementation due to lack of available reference material. Recording the online training for future reference is not permitted -The workday community site is cumbersome (searches are not ranked according to relevancy and it can take many hours to find what you are looking for). Some workday studio components don't seem to be documented at all on the site. -Certain functionality and community information is only provided to "Workday Implementation partners" which makes it nearly impossible to implement in-house without paying to outsource some of the work to a workday partner. -Workday doesn't seem to have been built with performance in mind. Even with server side paging, reports and integrations are very slow. -Lots of "hidden features." This would normally be a bonus but more advanced tasks require the user to know exactly what to search for from the application's search feature. Most of the functionality of workday is hidden in search results and isn't intuitively exposed in the UI.

Pros: Ease of use and the quality look of the whole software--Simplistic looks allow for ease of use but these layouts and scheme are exactly what is needed for any person to use and understand the product. I highly appreciate how easy it is for employees to have a part in viewing/changing their own benefits, beneficiaries, and dependents.

Cons: The only suggestion I would make is to increase the height of the viewing boxes. Currently, they are cut off directly after the last line, appearing cramped. However, this is aesthetics.

Overall: I use it quite often to review or change my benefits, beneficiaries, or dependents.

Pros: We moved onto Workday when we did not have a system in place previously. So there was a lot to consider and much work that needed to be done to set up system with our historical data (this was the biggest effort). However once we were set up on Workday, life was so much simpler for our HR department. Processes were followed, employees were more informed about their vacation and benefits information and we finally build the reports we needed to support our growing company!

Cons: I think all of the effort and consultancy hours we spent on delivering workday made this a very costly implementation. The processes of inputting our historical data was a bit chaotic, however Workday was with us all along the process and made sure we had a successful implementation and launch.

Comments: Inadequate training, lack of internal SME resources, and an absence of a true guided vision/direction by leadership will result in an expensive and poorly received system. As such, an organization will be reliant on implementation partners or independents as consultants, supporting or re-implementing a failed system, which will be even more expensive.

Pros: Workday is leading edge technology and highly configurable.The UI is best in class. Integrations with most 3rd party systems are easy to configure and the delivered packaged integrations are superb.

Cons: An organization needs to ensure proper internal support for the system to function smoothly. Training and user adoption/communication is also key for acceptance. An organization must have the SME talent in-house to be successful.

Overall: Workday is used as our company's tool for performance management as well as compensation. It's extremely easy to use and very user-friendly. Anything you're looking for can be accessed within 2-4 clicks and the page is never crowded with too much information. In 2015, our company moved to Workday to house employee performance goals and reviews. This tool has the option to conduct reviews of direct reports and also has the ability to collect reviews from direct reports about their direct managers. There's an awesome audit trail as well as approval process. All changes are tracked and it's good that this tool allows the option for dual acknowledgement of year-end reviews (from the employee and their direct manager). Would highly recommend for companies of all sizes.

Comments: This software flat out stinks. It's cumbersome, too many buttons and many of them lead you astray to a place you do not want to go, reporting is terrible, and the worst part is the offer stage is the hardest thing, it's like threading a needle multiple times. As a recruiter for ten years the last thing you want to struggle on is getting an offer letter to a candidate, you work hard enough just to get them there and now you have to deal with software issues? I had to ask several candidates to reapply after getting the offer cause they have all these ass backwards rules. Trust me I've implemented and worked on better ones ten years ago than this one.

Stay far away from this software, one of the three reasons why I quit a place I worked at was because of this software. It's a big fat complicated beast that spoils recruiting. It's not hard to find something better, there are hundreds just pick anyone than this.

Pros: Once it is up and running it is sophisticated.

Cons: Too expensive for smaller company and too difficult to understand at first.

Overall: Workday is a big system and not for a small Company. They are also expensive and use a ticketing customer service model so you can't just pick up the phone and call when you have an issue. Once you do put in a ticket it is a 24-72 hour turnaround before they even call back. They also charge by the hour for the service. If you want to make any changes to it, you have to be able to code at a certain level and then again, they charge you for everything. Including setting up Open Enrollment for Benefits to setting up Performance Management.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure to really inquire about the total cost of the product from implementation to customer service.

Cons: Not flexible for customization

Recommendations to other buyers: None at this point. I have to use the software more to make any recommendations.

Workday helps ensure that everything is not only documented, but easy organized, accessible and up to date. I would recommend this to any beginners with help easing into Performance Management systems.

Recommendations to other buyers: Helpful when training beginners on how to implement Performance Management into their routine.

Overall: I am an employee user of Workday, my company administrates our benefits through this tool. Our previous tools were very difficult and I needed instruction sheets to interact with them. But with Workday it is considerably simpler and I can often intuitively find what I need. We do vacation time,paychecks, health benefits and more through Workday.

Comments: Workday has been easy to learn, and easy to communicate or teach managers how it works. There are a few improvements that I would like to see happen, but it may be just because we as a company haven't customized it to match expectations yet.

Pros: Documentation of steps, up next tasks, approvals pending easily viewable and easy to find.

Cons: Identification of requisitions ID and integration with our ATS Jobvite. Not so easy to find and match to ATS.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great product to learn, easy to understand, but make sure the right teams in place to customize it for each HR team involved.

Comments: My company utilizes Workday for Performance Management. After being at the company almost 9 years, at least the last 3 years, we've been utilizing Workday. I like how well the software is customizable to the needs and the functionalities support our company's needs. For instance, we have quarterly reviews and the Workday system sends out automated reminders, then there are reminders in the Inbox until specific tasks are completed. Also, when I'm using the tool to write feedback, there are tools built in for spell check, bullet-formatting and other simple, yet important tools to make it easy to use. I like that you can "Submit Now" or "Save for Later" too. Overall, I do like the tool and it is easier to use than previous tools used by my company!

Pros: The user interface is simple and clean - from a non-admin/HR user perspective it's relatively easy to find/take action on things in the system. The 'Workday Community' is an interesting idea & good way for companies with various levels of experience with the product to connect on ideas/problem solve.

Cons: There's much to be desired from a recruiting perspective; this is NOT an ATS. Having had to build numerous custom processes for what would seem like routine/basic processes or actions within a recruiting function may cause frustration for users expecting a more robust ATS to be delivered.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you evaluate what your actual needs are/will be from Day 1. Many HRIS systems/packages show themselves as being able to deliver/cover all of your needs and that might not really be the case.
