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
What's your prediction as it relates to the possiblity of Western Digital layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Or am I too optimistic?
We will Ship 20TB OptiNAND HDDs in November
WD management only cares about the bottom line and that's it. It couldn't care less about employees if it tried. Their entire strategy boils down to profit at any cost. That's it. it doesn't matter who gets hurt in the process, how many families lose... — read more
Just noticed WDC stock dropping like a stone. Looks like the CEO is not a good salesman and the market punished the stock.
I see people are leaving, but where? I've been looking at job openings and there isn't much available in our field. I'm yet to find something that's worth even considering quitting over. Am I looking at the wrong places? Where are all these jobs... — read more
Am I the only one? I was never as stressed out and worried about my job as in the past year. We've always had occasional layoffs but it feels like they've ramped them up recently and added small cuts in between major rounds just to keep us on our... — read more
I left 2 months ago and Ive never been happier! Out of that toxic, borderline racist, corrupt place where I "wasted" away over 10 years of my career (including sandisk). Like I say it to others - When in doubt- Get the F*** OUT Create a list of the... — read more
Can anyone tell me if WD has announced a vaccine mandate?
I don’t like how this company is changing. I’m not saying the company should stagnate and never change, but also, I don’t believe there are many who like the direction in which this company is changing?
No one who does their job well enough can stay here long. Either they leave on their own because they realize that at WD they can't reach their full potential, or WD gets rid of them very easily, because there isn't much room here for those who excel... — read more
Hope your career fly off in new company
I recently had a little discussion with a colleague about whether it's ever been harder to work for this company than it is now, i.e., did WD always squeeze people this much? I no longer have any life-work balance here. It seems to me that from... — read more
Judging by my experience, I would describe Western Digital as a place where it's hard to grow your career. It seems to me that there is fewer and fewer opportunities for growth here. That’s why I’ve been thinking about leaving lately. How satisfied... — read more
I told a few coworkers I was ready to quit even without a new job lined up (I'm having issues with my manager that HR was no help at all with) and nearly everybody called me crazy. I'm confident that in the current labor market I'll be able to find... — read more
WDC pay without LTI is below market. Wondering if WDC uses LTI to match market, meanwhile make employee feel special by telling them it only gets offered to very limited people
Recent email say WD strongly encourages us to get vaccinated. Says we are almost at 90% with daily questions to enter building. Sorry I think it’s BS heard many employees just saying they are so they don’t have answer daily emails. My body my choice... — read more
Western Digital has gotten rid of a lot of people in a way that made it go very unnoticed by the media. They fail to do anything to keep people’s jobs, but they manage to hide things from the public eye. Fortunately, the people I know who... — read more
Will the layoffs continue or are we done for now?
I heard there are some people got laid off today. Anyone know more detail?
Not the first time… Western Digital Caught Bait-and-Switching Customers With Slow SSDs Guess that was too much to hope for. According to a report from Chinese tech site Expreview, the WD SN550 Blue — which is currently one of the best-reviewed... — read more
Came here today and saw high upvote downvote counts generally in favor of. The C - level team. Looks like someone is aggressively up voting pro wd and downvoting anti wd. Get a life you sycophants. And as for the haters, get a life too. If you dint... — read more
So much for all the “praise” of Goeckeler strategy and leadership. He has been a horrific CEO who was booted from Cisco along with his tag a longs who have hurt peoples careers and devastated our culture. Never cared about the people of Weatern... — read more
Everyone is talking about how they got much better offers with better pay and benefits after they left WD. No one says how much harder they have to work now. At WD a lot things are not good, but it is not true that there are no people who would... — read more
I finally got a great offer, which means I’m now counting the days until the last day here. When summarizing my impressions, I would not recommend anyone to come and work here. The stress and pressure I had here was astronomical. I just wonder how... — read more
Well looks like Goeckeler is booting the one who brought him to WD and bringing in one of his minions from Cisco. Sundberg is out and Bastione is in. Word is she is as toxic and horrific as Lynne and the others who have been waging war against... — read more
Anybody else has more info?
I keep hearing that the job market is great right now, is this true? I'd like to move on from here, I'm tired of constant stressing over layoffs but I'd lie if I said I wasn't worried about what's available and where I would land. How is everybody... — read more
I don't regret leaving at all. Now that I remember how much I was hesitant and how unsure I was of leaving and accepting another offer... I shouldn't have hesitated at all. Not only am I paid more, that wasn’t even the primary reason I left, but I... — read more
I keep hearing that there was layoff today, unfortunately all I heard is that affected Milpitas and Irvine. Anyone has more details?
For years I’ve been happy and content at this company but very recently I feel as though I could leave today just to be happy again.
I have enjoyed my short time here at WD but I have heard horrible things that happened to multiple close colleagues and that made me think... how many other employees are affected by toxic work environments and are too afraid to speak up?
