Vice President Information Technology at a tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Feb 16 2017

What is most valuable?

The API’s have enabled us to really deliver reliable automation to the company. This isn’t just critical, because we can create ease of use, though that is really nice. Reliable, auditable integration has reduced the complexity and cost of... more»

How has it helped my organization?

If there was something to really point out here, it isn’t what Workday has done or offers, but what it hasn’t done that has been so powerful. We struggled to have successful implementations previously, partly because of our desire/need to... more»

What needs improvement?

There is too much of a one-at-a-time concept in the workflow. The system is designed with the object model in mind, which is brilliant. Transition from one thing to the next is a never-ending relationship experience. As a leader, however,... more»

Payroll Lead at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Jul 31 2018

What is most valuable?

It is quite user-friendly. We can store all the employee data information on it.

How has it helped my organization?

It stores everything for the employee. It has also been able to store the information that we use for our payroll demand.

What needs improvement?

I cannot really use Workday, because they don't have worker payroll in the product. We have to solve our payroll. I hope one day they will be able to have their own localized standard payrolls for all countries. In terms of reporting, we have... more»

Principal Integration Architect at a tech vendor with 11-50 employees
Jan 15 2018

What is most valuable?

The flexibility to integrate with the product. It has several tools, out-of-the-box, for integrations. It delivers pre-built interfaces for specific vendors, pre-built generic integrations to extract or push data into Workday through... more»

How has it helped my organization?

* By leveraging the business process framework that the product delivers, and the built-in workflow, it has forced individuals to be more accountable to their managers and employees. * It also enforces cleaner data; you cannot just push data... more»

What needs improvement?

Analytical tools have needed improvement. Workday has just released Prism Analytics, to replace the current analytical tools, so it’s in the early stages. Workday has great reporting capabilities today, but if we don’t have a fully... more»

Business Analyst, HR at Transamerica
Feb 08 2017

What is most valuable?

It has lots of built in reports. I can copy the report and modify it instead of spending time on studying which table is the one I need to use. Each field also has its description, although sometimes it may not be clear what it means. The GUI... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Employee Self-Service and Manager Self-Service are not additional products to implement and they can save time for HR operations. Workday also offers a lot of HR modules that facilitate us to do analysis in one place.

What needs improvement?

For reporting, Workday only allows users to select which table to join, and it defaults everything. It should allow users to specify the type of join table. The Payroll module is not usable for Asian countries. It is not possible to customize... more»

Senior Associate (Management Consulting) at a consultancy with 10,001+ employees
Sep 20 2016

What is most valuable?

I primarily used the report writer; have some experience with EIB integrations as well.

How has it helped my organization?

My personal organization does not use it. However, in my clients’ organizations, people really seemed to like the user interface, and the community has been extremely helpful. The regular releases are also very nice. Reporting is a bit of a... more»

What needs improvement?

It's great for operational / detailed reporting and some low-level analytics, but for heavy-duty analysis against large data sets, I find it's a bit lacking. For instance, the indexed data sources only work when using non-calculated fields.... more»
