WD has a great culture with teamwork being a common goal here. At WD, you are encouraged to think outside the box. And, WD is making me smarter — as an employee, you will learn a lot. Entrepreneurship is a big draw — you get to take calculated risks. I’m proud to represent WD — when people realize where I work, their faces light up! They tell me, “I use a My Cloud” and they think it’s really cool.
