Pros

Overall experience with Workday Financial Management has been fantastic. Great capabilities that can integrate very well with other Workday modules.
I love how user friendly it is. You can find anything and everything with ease.
I think it will be a great benefit to our employees once we get everything set up as it should be.

Pros

This product is great for providing schedules, but it's also engaging to the employees, allows for colleagues to commend each other, and provides a lot of additional benefits.
It was nice that there were PPP reports created to help with the application as well as the forgiveness. They were very helpful while going through those processes.
Our of the 4 payroll companies that we have used over the last 10 yrs, Paylocity is my favorite. The program is the easiest to use and the employees like it the best.

Cons

Hard to learn at first- errors pop up at times.
My overall experience with Workday is sometimes frustrating since I cannot get the reports I need to do my job.
Employees will accept having to use Workday to manage their taxes, etc. I'm not aware of an alternative for large companies. It will, however, be a perpetual pain point for employees.

Cons

If it weren't a hassle to switch systems, I would switch in a heartbeat. This is a terrible platform and I am unimpressed with the company as a whole.
It is hard to give negative feedback about a product that does more than one can fully comprehend. The report writer can be tricky if you are not familiar with how to use it.
The interface is terrible and they are making changes all the time. I have a rotating door of "account managers" and never get ahold of the same person twice.
