    Pros

    The best thing about Workday, is that is combines all of the necessary HR functions of a company, along with the ability to input Organization Team Workflows for the ease of viewing. They also offer a smartphone app that allows you to access some of your organizations HR functions on the go.

    Cons

    The smartphone app is a little buggy at times, and sometimes you get stuck in a screen you can't get out of without ending the app and re-entering.

    I'm a huge fan of Workday - makes my job so much fun being able to support it!

    Pros

    The configurability throughout the system makes it easy for the functional folks to be able to primarily support it.

    Cons

    Sometimes with it being so easy to use it can be a little challenging for instance with the "google" search approach - it's easy when you can guess the right word(s) - and sometimes this is very simple but it can be frustrating if you don't know the key words to use.

    Once setup, it works well. Once you get used to the interface and the placement of functions you will feel better. Automated reports were set up in a jiffy.

    Cons

    Integration is a pain!
    Understanding the processes IS DIFFICULT. Too much documentation needed to be created for end users.

    Its been a frustrating experience overall. I'm sure it would work fine at a large company that can afford all the ancillary staff and consultants fees, but for a mid-sized company its too unwieldy to justify its cost

    Pros

    The settlement process includes automatically sending the ACH file to the bank as well as paying state and federal taxes. So that is convenient

    Cons

    Its very bulky, meaning it isn't built to be nimble or flexible. There are pretty severer limitations to how deductions can be set up (ex no deductions with goal amounts). Handling employees with multiple positions has been a problem area.

    Often the interface is oversimplified in such a way that makes it difficult to find the features you need. It requires a lot of clicking just to enter time.

    it is awesome.

    Pros

    I use workday as a end user in my orgination.In workday what i like most is helps to maintain transparency between management and lower employee.In workday any employee can see full hierarchy of his/her organization so their is no hide and seek between management and employee.Employee can see his all year performance,his role in organization detail ,his profile,training,skill everything in one single place.and for company also it is easy to track each single employee detail like performance,skills,work history.

    Cons

    I dont find any thing which I dont like in workday as it make transparency in organization so I will suggest to organization to use workday so it increase employee's trust on organization which is very necessary for any organization.

    Pros

    After my company switched to this tool it has been a positive experience since then.
    Pros:-
    1. UI - the user inteface is awesome and elegant
    2. Ease of use - It is extremely self explainatory. it has been very smartly differenciated into categories
    3. all the details can be easily accessed and manupulated
    4. Ease of editing information from phones as well
    5. Availability of fetching custom reports
    6. Can search for anyone in the organisation for their details and understand the hierachy of the company
    7. Goals are easily commentable for managers
    8. Lot of training can be included under learning

    Cons

    Cons:-
    Though workday has a very simple user interface some options are very difficult to find
    1. Hard to edit data, difficult find the edit address and other data option, could be made little easier
    2. Confusing sometimes which option is under which category if there could be a little summary under the categories on the home page that would help.
    3. Less training avalable on workday
    4. If anything need to be changed needs and approval from HR deparment or managers

    Value for Money
    Pros

    Workday makes it possible to do side-by-side comparisons of benefits and their coverage and costs so it helps our users in deciding which one will suit their needs best.
    It displays all the benefits that the company offers such as 401k, medical and dental in a clear and easily understandable format. It allows our company to deliver a large amount of information to our employees at their most convenient time so we can make sure they keep themselves informed without it taking too much of our HR resources.
    Third party system integrations were a breeze with excellent results in the delivered packaged integration.

    Cons

    It can feel a bit intimidating at first so we made sure proper training, leadership and resources were available internally so our employees did not have a hard time adapting to the system. Once they have though, feedback has been largely positive and any hiccups were easily addressed.

    I wish every organization used workday! It's by far one of the most intuitive and user friendly platforms I've used. It gives an easy to understand breakdown of everything from salary and benefits to vacation.

    Cons

    I haven't had any negative experiences on the user end. I imagine that one of the prohibitive features on an employer end (particular for non-profits) is the expense.

    This tool is head and shoulders above any other performance tracking tool that I have used. Setting goals and tracking your performance against them is very easy. The UI is extremely clean and pleasant to look at. A big upgrade from the system my company previously used.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons for this software. It has never caused me any headache. I have heard from my higher-ups that it is expensive, but I do not know the pricing details.

    It is a very dumb-downed version of your paycheck which allows users to understand the compensation. It includes everything needed for compensation as well as historical data.

    You cannot actually change any compensation deductions within workday, but you can view the history of all deductions, taxes, etc.

    Cons

    I really don't have any con with the software. I never had to contact customer service so I really cannot evaluate part of the software.

    Hi like Workday because it is user-friendly. Even the graphics are easy to identify, making navigating seemless.

    Cons

    Not too much I don't like. The new Duo feature to verify log in is a pain - you have to download the app and every two weeks, reinstate. If I had to do that every time I needed to access my timesheet (I don't, I'm exempt), I would be really frustrated.
