Suggestions for improvement

  • 1. Get better executive management and refocus the company into SSDs 2. Restructure the executive mgmt in Content Solutions 3. Move Content Solutions back to southern California

I like about the employer

The work content was good but was not state of the art for a software developer

I dislike about the employer

1. Management and executive team lost focus the last three years
2. All jobs are moving from Irvine to Mountain View over the last three years because according to mgmt they have better engineers up there and its more cost effective than in so Cal (yeah right).
3. Hard disk drives is a dying technology like tape drives were 15 years ago and WD as whole is looking the other way
4. When your boss has a PHD in aerospace engineering doesn't make him qualified to be in mgmt over a software applications department
5. Their stock was $115 less than two years ago. Its lost 50% of it value. What does that tell you
