Thread regarding Western Digital Corp. layoffs

So, are we safe for now?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not naive to think that layoffs are over at WD, but are we at least safe for the time being? In other words, have they achieved what they wanted wit cuts to this point?

Wd MediaPenang 1st wave layoff (right sizing)

It starting now one plant will shutdown by 29March . All exempt staff will be forced to take retrenchment package.

Most NE staff immediate transfer to do operator job in another Media Plant . Look like forcing them to resign due to unfavourable working conditions.

UNIONS is friendly management. No Memo or email on the retrenchment package ..

Need help to save our job,hope the TOP management changed.

Actually, NO ONE is safe. It doesn't matter where you're employed, there's simply no loyalty anymore between employer and the employee(s). Update your resume and keep a portfolio of your work, so that you have proof of your abilities and competence. Keep both your soft and hard skills up to date.

You should have an exit strategy, which includes at least one (1) year's salary in a savings account (you can't count on your severance package to tide you over until the next job). Sorry, but given the current company leadership (or gross lack thereof) things are only going to get worse (especially at WD), instead of better.

I really wish everyone, especially my former co-workers, colleagues, and friends, the best of luck. Get out now while you still can.
