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

    Pros

    From a business perspective, they have very good people, transparent management style, and have a strategy, not just tactics. From a benefits perspective, San Jose employees have access to free on-site CrossFit classes, good cafeteria (but a little expensive), and decent bonus plan when the company hits its targets.

    Cons

    long-time employees overlooked for advancement opportunities,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    new blood is great, but don't overlook recognizing your long-time work horses.
