"Western Digital is a good environment for developers because they put developers first. I never once had an issue where I felt that the higher-ups weren't treating us like "the talent". That's unique to Western Digital."

"I worked at Western Digital for 5 years in the Enterprise SSD department. The group lacked direction as there were too many internal groups doing the same thing."

"I've worked for Western Digital for 1.5 years. I love the company's laid-back culture and their understanding and accommodation for life circumstances outside of the work place. The base salary is less than other companies, but the total compensation package includes up to a percentage of your base salary (% depends on experience/level) in annual bonus potential. However, since I've been there, there have been no bonus payouts."

"Western Digital is a good place to work. Even a good place for a career. Its challenge for many is its size. With many large companies its hard to loose the perspective you are just part of the larger hole. As company focused on commodity hardware sales much of the focus is on cost reduction / avoidance. This is not bad in anyway however it can challenge those are more interested in doing big things. Why ? At a large company you will need to work the proper channels as well as the side channels to make big moves. 4 Stars? Its a large company its hard to move upward or outward. And again the focus is commodity hardware sales."
