    Pros

    Good salaries. Coworkers are friendly. Bonuses are nice.

    Cons

    The people who do not know what they are doing are the loudest. Forced vacations. Things can turn from calm to hectic in seconds.

    Advice to Management

    Do what is right technically instead of defending your mistake.

    Pros

    WD as a large company (100,000 empolyee) is effective. The top management team (CEO, COO...) is lean and good at marketing. WD gives decent bonus to engineers and technicians (15%-25% of your salary). On the contrary, in lots of other large companies, all the money goes to managers.

    Cons

    Hard disk demand is hard to increase a lot more. However, there are too many old people in this business. Young people have no room to be promoted.
