    Work in a dynamic industry at a large company provides many opportunities to develop your skill set and connections. Challenging environment. Work with a lot of smart people.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is still finding its identity after acquisitions of Sandisk and HGST. Big company, takes a while to understand your role.

    Current Employee - Karnataka in Bangalore

    I have been working at Western Digital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Senior leadership makes effort to listen to your pain points. Decent compensation (again used to be good - to many headcounts in the recent past has hampered this).

    Cons

    Favouritism , politics , no flexibilty when it comes to work. No trust among employees and managers. Managers are forced to keep an attendance sheet for marking stand up attendance. Micro management.
