Approves of CEO

I have been working at Western Digital full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Lean, well-run company. Get exposed to and work with technologies from many different fields.

Cons

Somewhat of a sweatshop... more so nowadays than in years past. A reflection of the brutal PC industry.

Advice to Management

"The No A**hole Rule" should be required reading for upper mgmt. There are a lot of 'em at this company and in this business.
