    Some great hires, you really do work with the best in this industry when it comes to your colleagues
    Product is so far beyond anything anyone else has to offer and its a joy to work with
    CEO and Product leaders are very inspirational

    The great WD culture is not replicated in the UK
    Need better leadership in the UK, they are not terrible but not good enough compared to their US colleagues. All it needs is one or two inspirational leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better leaders that share your values, ambition and attitude in the UK
