What type of company is this one? I joined 4 years ago and stock has always been a let down
Does anybody have an insight into the split? Also, what happened during the last flash cycle?
I hope there won't be any big cuts around the corner. Any insights?
Leaders are preparing to do layoffs next week. With any luck, you will get a package. Right now we are all on the Titanic!
Loved article by Google. This is exactly what the HGST people are doing inside of WD. RESTING AND VESTING! You know who you are. get to the 4 year mark..now 3 and you are in the cash cow machine. Funny that it is such an open discussion at VP level... — read more
we.care but they.dont
well..folks based on all that is going on or not going on in BUs makes me think we are headed for the split. WD ki---d SD. Clueless HGST leadership could not fight way out of a paper bag. I'm talking to you JK. No sales kickoff, but a political... — read more
Earnings are out and revenue fell short of expectations, down 8% year-over-year. Cloud revenue increased 5% but client revenue declined 14% and consumer revenue declined 23% year-over-year. The stock lost 6.17% in pre-market trade following the... — read more
In any case, no matter how many of us are affected, it is bad. However, I still hope that the layoffs that everyone is talking about now will not be huge. Anyone with a bit more detailed information? How many people could be affected? Who could be... — read more
Rumors have been flying over the past week and a half about the potential for a layoff this year. Nothing from official channels, but the rumor is that they will be announced this summer and will be MASSIVE!!!! Stay tuned!! I have heard that a... — read more
That's the company pay ratio between the CEO and the median worker pay at Western Digital. Look at that number and tell me there's not something monumentally wrong there. We are having layoffs all the time when just halving the CEO's pay could save... — read more
We would get so many COVID emails every day and then they move it all to a bulletin board online. I feel it was in order to hide the rising cases of COVID to keep employees coming to work without freaking us out. I wish they would actually care about... — read more
It would be interesting to do a survey about stress levels at WD. Have you ever experienced more stress than you do now? Personally, I have never been under a greater load and stress. I have already started looking for other options.
It’s so sudden to hear his announcement to leave, also suspicious.
How will recession impact WDC?
It would have been better than the mountains of work I am expected to do now. Those who were laid off are the lucky ones, they just don't know that.
"Create what's next" that's our new tag line, which is pretty good, but the LA 28 Olympics has "Creating what's next" so now looks a bit of a sc--w up. la28.org
When my health became compromised due to stress, I decided it was high time to resign. The biggest issue for me was that everything was always very urgent, but in the end, when I finished all the work, it would turn out that it was not urgent at... — read more
What a disaster and waste of money. The only thing investors care about is splitting up the company. More vanity projects by Goeckeler and his playmates.
This is a rethorical question.
This is borderline gossip but here it goes anyway. What do you think, who will be replacing Goeckeler in the CEO chair?
People are talking about cuts next month, does anybody know where is this coming from?
Today is my last day. It is shocking how many people in IT have resigned in the past month. The wheels are coming off this company.
I am often shocked at which positions are given to those who are not at all qualified to be in such positions. Is it really possible that the standards have dropped this much? How do those who are really knowledgeable feel when someone who is far... — read more
How many times do we have to hear “Do you know who [my boss] is” just to get their way. Have you ever thought of asking politely and or actually going through proper channels to execute jobs properly and the right way? Employees starting to sound... — read more
The logo is a little science project once again conceived by Goeckeler and his wannabe SVP of Comms. Seriously nothing about Ukraine talented people leaving, compensation and stock down. What are they doing besides making pretty pics and weird... — read more
Young talented people do not want to come here because WD is failing to get rid of archaic, outdated and unnecessary practices. In my opinion, WD is stuck in the past, and leadership is doing nothing to change that. Isn’t it high time for change... — read more
I have sent resignation email to my boss almost 2 weeks ago. My boss just had a simple chat with me to show he is acknowledged. He might try to be polite to say he will see if can get a counter offer. Since then we have no interaction at all, no... — read more
I feel like we should have some sort of events to appreciate the employees. I’ve been invited to other company appreciation events within the last couple months and it has me wondering why are we not having anything especially now that we have to... — read more
There are too many useless managers here. Bad ratio of managers to employees. Anyone else finding this very frustrating?
So what is the response by WD to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Does WD continue to operate as normal in Russia? Or does follow WD other Tech companies to stop selling or operating in Russia? How is the Supply chain doing? sourcing raw materials... — read more
It’s hard to work and in general everything is very hard when you don’t trust the manager. I'm thinking of leaving because of that. My manager doesn't walk his talk at all. I absolutely don't trust him. In addition to making empty promises several... — read more
Back to office 3 days a week. Let the turnover begin...or continue. DG the dinosaur. What a corporate disaster. BOD... JOKE.
I wouldn't leave for a slightly better pay and benefits because, for now, it is still not so urgent for me to leave. However, I am not happy with the offers I'm receiving. I wonder how much better compensation and benefits have been offered to... — read more
I know of several companies that have reduced their severance and used COVID-19 as a handy excuse. It's low and immoral in my opinion but it's been happening. Does anybody know if something similar happened or will soon happen at WD? Is there any way... — read more
