Current Employee - Staff Engineer in Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)

I have been working at Western Digital full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Basic MNC benefits which is slightly above local company standard

Cons

Subpar to other MNC benchmark in terms of benefits & worklife balance.
Uncertainty in work security demotivates working level & career path in certain department or under some supervisors are discouraging.
No culture enrichment, losing corporate identity & pride as an employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting more people biasedly in certain department & review necessity of the balanced management to working levels.
Enhanced back-to-basic training instead of introducing old methodology (5-why's?), correct the outdated standards (CA=PA? ISO9000:1994 standard?) & unnecessary human soft skill which the technical know-how is more important to strive for innovation.
Stop introducing inconsistent coercive-less software/apps in manufacturing & revamp manufacturing backbone structure over the ever demanding traceability using the outdated decoding method.
Refocus marketing in local market, e.g. missing so much in M'sian transition into satellite broadcast HD recording.
