A great company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I have been working at HGST full-time for more than 8 years

Pros1) Due to more than 2/3 and almost dev sites and mfg sites were ex-IBM SSD (Hitachi acquired IBM SSD's HDD business since 2003), basically it still has IBM culture, one of keys is to respect individual. As long as you can contribute, no matter where you come from, you will be respected.
2) Multi-cutures and harmony working environment.

ConsSometimes commonality not so satsifactory due to two dev sites although majority of the items are commonized.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore efforts on HDD robustness in design to maintain the Quality leadership.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
