  • Allows managers and employees to provide feedback to one another
  • Workday [Human Capital Management] is a great storage of payroll and paystub information
  • [It] allows companies to upload mandatory training modules
  • Some of its interface is not very intuitive
  • It takes several clicks and digging to get to some basic info
  • Its layout is outdated compared to other internal websites

  • Makes it easy to charge specific work orders when tracking time.
  • Accurately creates report for year-end reviews and goal tracking.
  • Allows users to comment on ongoing work tasks that can be seen by management.
  • Can use software to see how much time is left in vacation or sick banks.
  • Allows users to quickly elect benefits for the next calendar year, with controls to prevent inadvertent benefit selection. Summarizes total premium cost.
  • Sometimes time charge errors are hard to uncover, particularly when multiple hour submittals have not been saved.
  • Adding, editing and deleting performance tasks can be difficult to manage.
  • The mobile app can be easier to use than the web browser version.

  • Workday is easy-to-use for end-users due to its simple interface.
  • Workday can be unlimitely configure by the Workday team in order to meet the critical business needs (e.g. approval flows, business rules, validations, etc.)
  • Easily and accurately track and maintain employee data.
  • Easily allow the HR team to pull data and information through report writer.
  • Workday Studio allows Workday to be integrated with other platforms, leading to automation and time-savings using Workday as the main source of truth.
  • Even though Workday is easy-to-use for end-user, negative feedback on Workday generally revolve around the interface that doesn't look modern.
  • Even through Workday allows unlimited configuration, learning one Workday module can take up to 2 years. Workday configuration is not as simple as other HCM softwares.
  • Even though Workday provides learning course, it is extremely expensive.
  • Even though Workday has Workday Support to support errors, issues, and bugs on Workday, Workda Supports tend to be kind of slow when compared to other softwares support.
  • Workday is extremely expensive when compared to other HCM softwares.

  • Manage Time Off requests.
  • Requisitions for new hires.
  • Promotions and pay increase.
  • The requisition and candidate flow can take a bit to get used to, there are some arrows to go to the next candidate that aren't in the best place for workflow.
  • For our hourly employees that work in multi-departments where a rate change is required, there isn't a way to make that change in the inbox module. It would be great if this functionality was added for a more productive flow.

  • Instant access to information, such as PTO, performance, role, etc.
  • Can access reports filtered for specific data points or fields.
  • Easy to use.
  • One central database location for all personnel information.
  • Secure and limited access is given on a need to know basis.
  • Certain information can not be accessed and/or updated by the own individual. For example, for a name change, an individual would need to contact HR directly for updates or changes to information.
  • Lack of notification emails when updates are done or if pending items are awaiting responses. The employee needs to log in to find out if anything is pending or not. It would ideal if automatic email notifications go out if anything is still pending updates or changes have been made.
  • Effective dating not available for all changes in generates reports. For example, if a change was made to a certain field, the report generated does not display the effective date of the change.

  • Groups employees in management hierarchies and creates Org Charts that are easy to navigate and allow for visualizing management chains regardless of employee locations
  • Intuitive and easy to use. The Workday search functionality works very much like Google; one can search for anything that they have access to in the database and drill down into the various details. All information is connected through hyperlinks and users can easily keep digging into the details for as far as their security access would take them.
  • Tasks such as to do, review or approve items are sent to the user's Workday Inbox, very much resembling email. Notifications about outstanding "to do" items are also sent to each the user's work email address on a daily basis.
  • Language translations of custom data fields and business processes across different modules are not available and each client has to maintain these on their own. This can significantly challenge system adoption and utilization, in countries where English is a second language.
  • Limited ability to customize system generated error messages (often heavy of technical jargon) leads to inability for the end user to self-service in resolving simple transactional issues and causes a high volume of escalations to the system support team.
  • Inability for the system to handle multiple transactions with the same effective date and determine what would be the most up to date information based on the timestamp of each transaction. This creates a constant need for data corrections, cancellations or rescinding of transactions to accommodate entry of additional information effective dated on the same day or users have to future date transactions to avoid conflict.

  • Reporting. There seems to be a virtually limitless way to report on hundreds of different data points
  • Performance Management capabilities have gone from manual pen and paper to online and fully automated with built-in routing and workflows
  • Payroll services have been enhanced and pay changes have been streamlined and made more efficient
  • Reporting. Can be very messy if the user does not know what they're doing
  • Roles in Workday need more configuration capabilities

  • Mobile app is pretty good
  • Less emails, more notifications are good, especially the way it bundles the notifications
  • The web interface is awful
  • Terrible, terrible, UI. No modern features like auto-save. I can't count the times I have lost work.
  • Their UX team (if it even exists) must be aliens, because I can't see how humans would have come up with the UI conventions they have.
  • Who creates a website application where you can't open stuff in multiple browser windows and tabs easily?

  • Performance Tracking
  • Compensation
  • Time Off
  • User Friendly
  • Clean Design
  • Seamless
  • It's only useful if your manager and other co-workers adopt it too, otherwise, it'll be lacking data/functionality.
  • Sometimes some forms or information isn't where you'd think it is, intuitively, so you have to go on a bit of a hunt for it.
  • I frequently get errors or have access issues with small things that are frustrating. You might reload the page and it'll work which is a bit annoying.

  • Flexibility in building Business Processes.
  • Highly configurable.
  • Always on and available anywhere from cloud.
  • More easy, it is almost too good at what it does, that it is sometimes cumbersome to do actions.
  • Less downtime, already great, but would be nice to have zero downtime.
  • Better implementation of client's brainstorm ideas into the product releases.

  • It's really easy to see my pay and how much I have been paid over time and where the different parts of my paycheck are going in regards to taxes, social security, 401k, etc.
  • Easy to give feedback to colleagues within the platform.
  • The search functionality is pretty bad. I'd love to be able to search for specific documents and have the search functionality bring them up (W2, April 2020 payslips). But it doesn't currently seem to recognize almost any search query
  • Its really hard to tell how the categories were created. For example if I want to find my W2 why is it hidden under Pay -> Tax documents but its not hidden under personal information -> worker documents. If your search functionality worked this would be less annoying.
  • The way you choose to collapse certain items is odd. Like in "personal information" there are 5 items shown up front and then it says "More (2)." The items are small, there is no reason to cut them off after only 5.

  • Workday HCM has come a LONG WAY, it used to be terrible!

  • PTO requests and viewing is very quick and easy.
  • Useful to see where people sit in our organization and to find someone's manager if necessary,
  • Workday also contains useful contact info like cell phone if you need that in an emergency.
  • We use separate systems for pay stubs / benefit allocation as well as managing HR plans. Would be great if Workday could handle all of these things well.
  • This may be our setup, but I am unable to pull useful reports which I want to use to analyze headcount & capacity. This may be just how we set up access.

  • Massive scale. Uber is huge and being able to access Uber employee information across teams and regions is super helpful.
  • Easy-to-use interface. I really like the ability to easily pull user information needed to provide insight into my programming.
  • Trusted source. I've never been let down by the partnership and consistency across the board!
  • Access to all user information. Sometimes I've found some inconsistencies in reports I've pulled through Workday. This could be bad data or the system, unsure of the origin.

  • Onboarding.
  • Promotions and increases.
  • Tracking of the employee life cycle.
  • Tax forms - want to be able to house state tax forms for employees to fill out at the same time as FWT - W4, without having to purchase the payroll module.
  • PTO - ability to grant time over 10 months and prorate time-based on hire date.
  • Be more user-friendly. Example direct deposit set up is extremely burdensome. The system is not intuitive.
  • PTO - be able to see your entire direct reports and their reports time for the year at a glance!
