Cool Employee Tracking Tool

Pros

Great for tracking employee's time, payroll, benefits and recruiting. It also has mobile access. Employees can manage and track their own issues.

Cons

Not always easy to use. Generating reports. A smaller business would not find it cost effective. Mosy might find it easier to manage on their own.

An OK Time Tracking System

Pros

I like the fact you have different applications all on your home screen. It makes getting access to your time card, benefits, and time off simple. If your company chooses to have different applications on the home screen they are able to do so.

Cons

Entering your time for the week is a bit tedious. You have to search for the "time type" and then enter your hours. If you don't choose the correct time type then it will not accept your time.

Confusing interface/design

Pros

Aesthetically pleasing, let’s you start and stop self reviews easily, easy to find inbox from the home screen (I found myself treating the inbox like a hub)

Cons

I often found myself confused about where to go to complete tasks or find documents. I found myself clicking in a circle, ending back at the home screen , and ultimately using my inbox as the way to find anything. Maybe I just wasn’t paying enough attention, but it seems like it shouldn’t be so hard for the occasional user to find what they need

Love the Software, Want the Old Design Back

Pros

I like having all of my pay, benefits, leave time, etc. info in one central place. Workday makes it easy to find exactly what I'm looking for very quickly.

Cons

They recently refreshed the interface and it's not as intuitive as the old one. I also think the old one just looked better overall. In the new design, it's not as easy to find what I'm looking for because everything is nested under a few overall categories that don't necessarily make sense for each item under it.

Good UI, Easy to use

Pros

Once you logged in successfully it is really easy to use. Their new graphical user interface also is very modern and mobile friendly.

Cons

The biggest issue of this software is the authentication part. If you have multiple emails it would be a headache to have one account with all of them. Also, on mobile app I experienced lots of failures.

So easy to use!

Pros

Workday makes it so easy to change my benefits, request time off, make changes to my pay and find other employees.

Cons

When employees quit, it takes a while to update, but I think that's more a company problem than a Workday problem.

Workday is the perfect platform for our organization.

An excellent platform for tracking employees and developing a globally manageable company structure.

Pros

The reports we need to run and easy and quick, and the supported hierarchies allow for easy tracking and global workforce management. Our key LMS and CRM softwares integrate flawlessly, allowing for pinpoint reporting and actual time data capture. The graphics and user experience are excellent.

Cons

It can be slow and difficult when accessing from phones/tablets. Our field service techs and sales reps often report issues when working abroad. This may have more to do with their connection/service issues, however it is still a headache I thought worth mentioning.

User friendly and Efficient

Pros

This software makes it easy to access things benefits, pay, on-boarding and training. It's a one stop shop.

Cons

The only con I could see happening would be if your company or employer don't maximize this software to its full potential.

Better

Overall though, I have had a positive experience with workday. I like that I can log in with my fingerprint and I can easily clock in and out and view paystubs.

Pros

I am a designer and I can really appreciate when a company spends a little time and money on making an app aesthetic pleasing and usable. I log in and clearly know what i'm looking for.

Cons

Another app...I realize the beauty of capitalism is that anybody can compete with other companies. This isn't a knock on workday at all only that I wish I didn't have an app or payroll, a different app for benefits, a different app for this and that.

Workday HCM Review

Pros

Easy to use and makes it easy to find all the details related to work and paychecks. It helps to update documents show time off available.

Cons

Sometimes it takes a while to figure out how to navigate between pages as there are plenty of options available. which can be a boon and bane at times.

Less-painful-than-average HCM software

Pros

I love that I can look up my vacation bank at any future date before requesting time off, and it also takes into account any existing approved vacation requests in the interim. It makes it quite easy to securely plan your vacations. Time entry is easier than our previous platform, as well

Cons

When copying time blocks from previous time periods, the interface is a bit clunky, and it doesn't copy fields and notes by default when doing so. If you accidentally import time from a previous week without checking that box, it's impossible to delete those bad time blocks without going into each one and selecting a bunch of required fields. It's a real pain the butt when you click wrong.

Powerful HRIS system

Workday has made it simple to centralize the HR information of an employee and the whole organization and male it accessible to anyone at any time.

Pros

The UI is so simple and clean. It is super easy to navigate and work your way around the platform. We mainly used this to retrieve our payroll advice, track our leaves, accomplish our annual performance, goal improvements and even access correspondences. It also allows ease of use when viewing the full hierarchy of the organization chart.

Cons

The software performance can be improved. I also think the workflow is too restrictive.

Workday - Very good but steep learning curve

We are aligning company goals with personnel objectives, we can keep track of all objectives and level of reach, and are able to introduce corrective measures when deviations are detected.

Pros

Very good UI, great at reporting and in communication with employees

Cons

A little cumbersome, when not implemented correctly it can be excrutiating to work with.

Great UI & Easy to use

Overall I really enjoy using Workday maybe one of the best systems I've used for payroll.

Pros

Workday is a great experience with a super friendly and easy to use UI. It's pretty straightforward to use and I've never had any issues with using it.

Cons

One feature in particular that I didn't like was with cancelling time off requests. You basically have to submit a new request to counteract the request. If you just need to edit something it's a very mundane task to complete.

Workday: Useful, but Difficult to Navigate

Pros

It's a modern day way to handle compensation communication and changes.

Cons

As a user it was difficult to figure out how to navigate to certain features. In the case of finding where the compensation information was a series of 4-5 clicks were needed clicking on hyperlinks not obviously related.

AMAZING TIMESHEET FEATURE

Pros

Workday has been amazing with the time in and off. With Workday, timesheets are very organized, errors are little to none. Filtering of information is also possible and works so well. Our office has been using this for a while and found little to no problem with the software.

Cons

Most times, the software does not run smoothly even with a great internet connection. Often crashes. My team and I are hoping that this issue will be fixed in the incoming updates.
