I worked at Seagate Technology

Pros

Good salary and benefits. Work locations reasonable (although it gets _very_ cold in Minnesota). Interesting technical challenges and smart co-workers.

Cons

Management is typically focused on the current quarter's results. This is unavoidable in the current climate. However, this approach is lethal in the engineering area, leading to patching instead of progress.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

(1) Much more pushback against product line proliferation, leading to feature creep paralysis in hardware and firmware designs.
(2) Really stupid for a high-tech company with a thriving research center to break up that center and disperse the researchers to the engineering centers where they focus on today's issues instead of tomorrow's solutions.
