"I have worked with Western Digital for the past 4 years. It has been a challenging position and has taught me skills in construction with zero impact to a 24 hour/365 day a year manufacturing facility. I have been able to sharpen my management training with company educational course in management. I have received numerous acclimation awards from customers and management for the successful execution of the project and my ability to manage cost control."

"I worked in the SMB QA department. This has been one of the best positions that I've had in my career and I have had some great ones. The only think that I think WD should do is to keep on a solid track of work process. Switching gears too much isn't good for business, employee relations or the reputation of a well oiled company."

"WD is very big. A lot depenends on manager of your particular team. I was very lucky. My manager was exceptional person and lead. People from other teams in the same departament wanted to move to our team (and some did). It seems like one common thing for Western Digital software is: very difficult to get raise/promotion. I consistently received good (Above Target or Significantly Above Target) marks during performance reviews, but only thanks to my manager's big efforts got raises (and not too impressive). WD has been economically solid and consistently paid insreased profit sharing during last 5 years."
