Executive Asst, Event Coordinator, Project Manager (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – December 16, 2017
I love that Western Digital is concerned about each employees health. They have a whole floor called Wellness Center, that provides Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, etc services to each employee.
They also have Biometric sessions to each employee and their spouse once a year, and also contribute money into your HSA medical card just for participating.
Last, they reimburse your monthly gym membership, of course with proof of receipts.
A lot of room to grow

Could be worse but could be better. Atmosphere is very political and many managers are self-seeking. Company has been performing well and seems to be well managed. Top management is stuffed with white males.
Failure Analysis Technician IV (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – November 9, 2017
Typical day at work was collecting data from several test beds for the returns products from customers. Transfer data to network servers to find the root cusses and supporting engineering analysis/evaluation activities.
SSD Firmware Engineer (Former Employee) – Longmont, CO – November 6, 2017
I was part of a team that was dismantled less than 6 months after I was hired. As there were no jobs available at the local site, the only option to stay with the company was to move to a different state.
Great job but when the company is slow they lay off a lot of people

Great job the schedule works with anything that you're doing with your in school or you're trying to get a second job the only downfall is it's a temp job so once the company slow it's a possible chance that you can get laid off
Staff Engineer (Current Employee) – Milpitas, CA – October 30, 2017
It is not a too bad place to work, but also not too good either. Just a fair place to work with, pretty stressful and fast pace environment. 3 big company combined together, a lot of things need to do.

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – October 20, 2017
I like to work at western digital although I have been through many sad and fun experiences such as too much pressure due to running many machines when my co-workers off or new products started on production lines.
senior leadership (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – October 16, 2017
As a Professional Services Consultant I enjoyed my tenure on this project. The Sales organization are true professionals with great work ethics. Location is great and working hours are geared towards work life balance.
Pros Good bonus and great team effort in the team. Also the amount of exposure that you get is great and I’m happy Cons The company does not provide any stocks or signing bonus which is the only disadvantage for this company. Also, since I’m in the rotation program, the yearly increase in salary is less Advice to Management Nothing
Technician, Level III (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – September 19, 2017
Here looking for a new job after layoff in April. Spent the last 3 years dodging other layoffs but now my time is up. All our jobs have been sent overseas but we did get to pack up most of our equipment and train the new workers.
PRODUCT DESIGN ENGINEER (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 8, 2017
Western Digital is a stable manufacturer with solid business. Work load and life balance are highly dependent on teams. Can be super busy and 24/7 on call if you are related to production line. It used to keep a start up style with fast moving attitude and less politics. However, after integration with HGST and San Disk, everything has changed.
