    I have been working at Western Digital full-time

    Pros

    The company is in a Stable financial situation currently. The co-workers are enjoyable to work with but that would probably be the case at any job. The location of the Irvine office is in a nice and safe area.

    Cons

    Employees are treated as commodities by upper management where all are considered to have the same skill level and talent. There are no real employee perks. The medical benefis are very poor. The on-site cafeteria is light on selection and a ripoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enhance work environment to ensure continued success of company. WD is competing with other companies that offer better work environments and better job satisfaction.
