Thread regarding Western Digital Corp. layoffs

Layoffs update?

I would love for someone to tell me that the post below about the layoffs is just a rumor and nothing more. I panicked when I saw the post, so I'm asking for more information. Where are the layoffs happening or about to happen?
I really don’t like the lack of transparency in this company. The uncertainty bothers me more than layoff would bother me.

I'm starting to see emails bounce to addresses that were working in january and february. You know what that means.

Get used to the layoffs. I have worked on and off for storage companies for 20 years, must have seen 20+ layoffs sometimes multiple in a year.

Working at a startup might have more security, paid more and have more upside. If the startup gets funding expect 2+ years of "stability" That's more then WD. However if you are "in good" and accept low pay at WD you could be there for life.

This forum is now a place for some unsecured management to unveil their struggle of not mixing well with the new upper management. However when those people thought they are in charge, they never considered career development of their engineers. To them, they had power and the engineers are just ants. Now they can feel they are just ants in new upper management's eye. What a joke. Lol.

It’s happening not in large groups to not trigger need to declare. It’s happening across the board.

Well, if the company starts shipping bricks like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MiniScribe, then you should worry.
