Current Employee - Senior Engineer in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Senior Engineer in San Jose, CA

I have been working at HGST full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good work environment, excellent people, good drive to be the best

Cons

Small growth in regular compensation and growing dependence on bonuses. Also, company is becoming too invested on reusing or making marginal improvements to old technology in current products at the expense of developing new technologies to face future challenges and ensure long term growth

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch the future, keep an eye on emerging challenger technologies

    Current Employee - Senior Manufacturing Engineer in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Manufacturing Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at HGST full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong technology company with good values. Fun place to work for a process engineer - the read/write head fabrication is challenging and involves complex integration. Most of the decision making is data driven.

    Cons

    Few opportunities to grow - the company is full of long time employees (from IBM days) making it difficult for a new engineer to grow. Lacks a strong training department or rotation policy to expand technical skills.
