    Pros

    Technical and academic advancement is highly valued here. Seagate has the best tuition program of any company in the area

    Cons

    Of late, raises have diminished and been largely replaced with bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the performance review system and tie bonuses and raises with performance.

    Pros

    People are friendly, job is challenging, planning personal/professional growth is expected. Flexibility for work life balance is encouraged. I really like my management team.

    Cons

    Getting to know your personal resources can be a challenge with a Global company. Sometimes communication gets lost when trying to work through issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep solid communication between teams. It saves a lot of problems on big projects that unknowningly cross paths.

    Pros

    I had a summer internship with Seagate. I was connected with a mentor who helped me during the summer. It was a wonderful learning experience and it greatly impacted my future career. I ended up continuing on to Grad school and working for a different company more closely aligned with my research field, but I still keep in touch with my Seagate mentor.

    Cons

    My experience was as a summer intern, so I'm not sure I got to know the work environment deep enough to find any flaws with it.

    Advice to Management

    I'm very grateful for your internship program!
