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Young talented people do not want to come here because WD is failing to get rid of archaic, outdated and unnecessary practices.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
I am starting to hear this...is anyone else hearing that a reorg and layoffs are coming for Customer Support?
5% inflation in last year. 3% ACR increases..cannot afford to stay here. CEO $35M in compensation. I hope he can survive this inflationary times. Poor guy.
Every day it's more bad news. I went from worrying about layoffs a few times a year to layoffs being constantly on my mind. I'm getting tired of this, it's emotionally and mentally exhausting. I think it might be time for me to start looking for a... — read more
Only shareholders seem to matter. Have you noticed that customers are increasingly dissatisfied? I don't understand why leadership thinks it's ok if customers are ignored as well. Okay, we're all replaceable to them, but customers? They are... — read more
They should fire the CEO and all the executives. This company consistently underperforms
I came to WD to expand my knowledge, gain experience, grow a skillset. Now it just seems to me that I lost time here and what is worse, that the skills I came here with have atrophied. I've come to a conclusion that this is not a good place for... — read more
Something clicked for me this weekend. I realized Sunday how quickly my mood soured as soon as Monday came closer. This has been going on for a while now but I have been mostly ignoring it. Now I realized that Sunday night dread for Monday is... — read more
Any news on layoffs? How did quarter end? Worried.
Looks like there is a program going on where fake glass door reviews are being posted. Too positive and very vague. Looks like strategic communications team is working on something they think adds value.
Any one has more information?
In the past, HR used to be very eager to help and always worked hard to maintain a good work atmosphere, but recently I am having plenty of problems with them. They don't care about the company anymore and are just doing politics to cover their fat... — read more
Our leadership seems to me like they have lost their vision. As if there are no long-term plans for this company.
How long have you been trying to find a new job? - I ask this because I am very disappointed. It never looked for a job for more than three months without any results, and I sent out a ton of applications. I feel terrible here and I can't stand this... — read more
