Who continues to makes these stupid choices? Tweets and Instagram posts that get under 50 people engaged and now we have this translucent logo? What is brand thinking?
Topics regarding layoffs at Western Digital Corp.
Joined WD last year from Cisco. My director just showed me a 2.5% pay raise. Is this too low? With everything getting more expensive, including housing and food, shouldn't the pay raise be higher? What are other people getting?
Just learned from my manager that I have to return to the office as an 'early volunteer'. EVERYONE will have to be back in JUNE! WD is the only company that does this. All others let people work from home at least for the rest of the year. No one... — read more
I accepted a job at a much smaller company that seems to have a lot of potential. I also accepted a much lower salary, it was that important to me to get out of here. I couldn’t stand this atmosphere anymore. I procrastinated with leaving and... — read more
The neighboring Seagate layoff info is updated every week or so. Does it mean WD is having good days?
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... — read more
Is WD too far gone to get back on its feet? Some of my coworkers believe that it will although it’s got a very long road ahead, but others insist we should just stick a fork in it because the company is done for. With the way leadership hasn’t had a... — read more
This place just gets worse and worse. More layoffs and clearly HR is asleep at the wheel. The level of politics and toxicity is off the charts. Not sure how we won an award of most ethical when employees have been screwed over this year by Goeckeler... — read more
So while we aren’t getting funded properly for STI after we performed someone is spending money on a stupid Instagram campaign that says ZERO about WDC? Someone please help these amateurs
Clearly out STI is being funded low because money is being redirected elsewhere. Perhaps to pay for all the new Cisco elitists?
I think many people received email like this recently:" This is a test of the Western Digital Emergency Communication tool. It is only a test. In the event of an emergency, critical information will be communicated to you via the contact information... — read more
Any update on ACR that got postponed in September. Is it cancelled altogether?
Lots of weird hiring and firing happening. Clear strategy other than it’s all about Goeckeleker and the team he brought it to create chaos. We are supposed to be innovating and instead losing engineering talent with the game playing and politics. ... — read more
Don't know the full scope yet, but two layoffs that I know of at our tiny site and the last minute notice all-hands suggest a lot more. Sorry to those boned again by WD. Unfortunately it will never stop.
In my opinion, HR should be the voice of compassion, reason and ethics, but that is not the case in this company. They should, of course, be the link between the company and employees to protect us, but they are not. They should help, but they don’t... — read more
Interesting that employees are laid of, forced out only to be replaced by more Cisco people. Makes you wonder if HR is asleep at the wheel or doesn’t care that starting at executive levels across and down it’s happening. Crazy how we have our own... — read more
What are your thoughts about potential Western Digital Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Once again we have a company meeting with no substance and details that employees need. All information across company is drying up as we are living and working with Covid. New EVP Rob slams existing leadership while thumping his chest. Ashley was... — read more
Yes or no?
So glad to see the Cordano Crown crew gone! Our company is in a terrible shape due to many years of terrible management. DG needs time to get the house in order. There are still way too many mid-level management to get rid of. It's going to be worse... — read more
Good news is there are jobs and we don’t need to watch our out of touch CEO in a golf cart video (which clearly had $$$$ spent), plus the weird obsession making all things on our homepage about Goeckeler yet he is so quiet publicly. Bad news is our... — read more
Looks like massive reorg announcement from Goeckler.
Doesnt look like there have been any, not sure why the frequent questions
First there was the fictional MAMR claims. Then that morphed into 'MAMR variant' or so-called ePMR. ePMR has nothing to do with MAMR. It also appears to be a great way to degrade the write head over time. Is WD really going to continue the... — read more
Are there any layoffs planned for this September? Which locations will be impacted? San Jose? Milpitas? Irvine? Colorado?
Two key leaders at WD are leaving. Message from CEO was a joke. Hack job couldn’t even say anything about them and what they did for WD. Misspelled last name of one of the leaders. Total joke. People are bailing and word is Goeckeler is bringing in... — read more
Five years in, was buying Sandisk a good idea?

Thoughts? Any Western Digital Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
What is your opinon about what needs to be done next?
Hi guys, I am about to join WD at end of May when my school is done. I am going to work on HDD R&D San Jose office. With the Coronavirus and the new CEO, should I fear that I would lose the job before even starting it?? How are things over... — read more
New CEO is MIA for employees and in the press. Doesnt seem he gets Operations and our business. More layoffs, leadership seems paralyzed by guessing what is happening. Lots of chaos and seems like leaders are trying to keep jobs and that CEO doesnt... — read more
Anyone has more infirmation?
Goeckeler needs to be better prepped. Needs a technologist in room with him to address questions. He doesn’t know how to deliver a clear and compelling responses. Does not seem to understand business.
This is a lay-off site. But my attitude has changed a lot with the Corona Outbreak. Usually I think more what will happen, if I loose my job. Now I am just very grateful that I am working at WDC and doing something useful. Hopefully a long time!
Or will there be even more layoffs today and next week?
I'm hearing raises/promos have been delayed again from September to December/January again this year even though it was supposed to be a on time temporary thing last year. Can anyone confirm or have any additional info?
Hi, I am joining WD as staff engineer and with the current stock prices and coronavirus situation, i am worried if layoffs are coming and it can affect me. Would like to know if its a good time to join
