Which one to choose Workflow or process builder ?

Suppose we have Status field in Account object with dropdown values as 
  • Open
  • Working
  • Close
My requirement is whenever I create a Account record bydefault Status should take value as Open And if Status is Open then three more fields in the same Account object should be updated with some particular values say 30, 45 and 69.

For the above mentioned scenario what shall I choose, Workflow or Process builder.

Dear Ankit,
I think we can do with process builder.

Hi Ajay,
That is my question here which one and why ?

You can able to do it using the workflow or process builder and both will work 

the reason as you are not referring the any cross objects
Hi Ankit, you can use either Process builder or the workflow, if there is already Proces builder configured on the Account object you can leverage it else you can go for the workflow since you are updating the records on the single object
refer this for more info
