    I have been working at Western Digital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally used to be a good software group and was growing but had some problems to go to next level. Had some very talented engineers and ideas. New mgmt. was hired to fix the problems.

    Cons

    - New mgmt. is inexperienced and a total disaster and has made the work environment hostile, toxic and ultimately a complete failure. - Large layoffs are a norm. One just happened last Friday - it is a one man show who is supposed to lead the engineering organization but pretty much runs product, marketing and even HR. The person has been given keys to the kingdom and it is very clear that he is neither qualified nor has the maturity to run large size organizations. - a lot of key positions are filled with new people who are from outside and buddies and neither have the track records nor experience to full fill the roles. It is solely based on buddy system. - snap judgements are made about employees by new mgmt. based on no substance technically. - questioning any decision means you get on layoff list unless you are in the inner buddy circle. - Mandatory 7 day work weeks are put in because releases were poorly planned , managed and doomed for failure to begin with. - layoffs are planned in advanced but Employees are intimidated to work at the Mountain View location mandatory 7 days a week and then laid off. Very unethical. Cannot believe this happens in USA.

    Advice to Management

    For C level of this company : The My Cloud solution software that was built by this group has a good technical base and can be revved up. The new mgmt. has made matters worse so fire them and start again. Still can be done if the right leadership which has real vision and proven execution background is hired. Get senior leaders with proven track records that also motivate people and who actually have the technical depth and substance. Do not fall for the hollow talk and bravado which clearly happened when the new mgmt was hired. Learn from your mistakes.
