    I worked at Western Digital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. You may acquire good experience and knowledge in production FAB and R&D in process development; 2. Good ESPP, bonus is OK; 3. Good people to work with; 4. Probably still a good company for investment within 2 years. 5. Cost reduction is always #1 priority.

    Cons

    1. Company's culture - CHEAP. 2. Lack of creativity. The company copy almost every generation of head from Headway or Seagate; and the company names it as its own business model. 3. Hard disk drive industry is almost close to its end of life (5-10 years more?). 4. Worst benefit plan as per as I know in so many companies in bay area. 5. Promotion is very difficult. 6. The chance of salary increase is low, actually your salary is decrease every year because of inflation. 7. Cost reduction is always #1 priority.

    Advice to Management

    Your employee will treat his/her work in the same way as the company treats its employees. Once a googler told me privately, "I should work hard for the company because the company treats us so good"; what a WD employee would say?

    I have been working at Western Digital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, no crazy 12 hour days, good atmosphere if you have a great manager that i did.

    Cons

    Its a low cost leader so everyone is looking to cut costs. The employees are stuck at same position for years. No employee management

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees, pay them well and give them opportunities to grow within company.
