I worked at Seagate Technology full-time (More than 10 years)
1) Incredibly smart, dedicated, principled and operationally effective colleagues. 2) One of the most truly "global" companies on the planet due to the way work gets done in this vertically integrated and globally distributed organization. Stay here and you'll see the world. 3) Though the market leader "big dog" for many years, this is a company that NEVER rests on its laurels. 4) The company's ability to plan and implement is truly remarkable. This includes internal programs like "Business Excellence" (Six Sigma, Lean, etc.), as well as technology innovations. 5) Very few tech companies provide the convergence of so many technical disciplines to innovate at such a high level. Seagate employs hundreds of PhDs and is one of the leading filers of patents in the US.
1) The need to interface with teams around the globe (and around the clock), and meet/beat deadlines can oftentimes have an impact on work-life balance. Some roles are especially challenging in this regard. 2) All products have a very short window of opportunity for market share and margins, so the pressure to innovate and optimize those opportunities is intense. This has gone on so long that it seems normal, but other companies build their strategy around "annuities" and have less pressure of this sort.
