Pros

Salary and benefits package are competitive. Vacation time is highly respected and seldom refused nor interrupted. There is a high degree of respect among employees and managers.

Cons

There are fewer opportunities for those who are not educated, technical, and innovative. The industry is one that is often vulnerable to highs and lows in the demand cycle, thus there are more regular layoffs than other industries.

Advice to Management

Offer truthful feedback about the industry. Do not "sugar-coat" current conditions and performance. Reduce the length of all employee communications meetings.

    Pros

    Seagate has a very fast paced environment. General compensation is all right. People are very smart and easy to work together with.

    Cons

    There are very little career growth opportunities within Seagate. Overall working environment is depressing. New ideas are not given enough room to grow

    Advice to Management

    Top management needs to give new ideas more room to prosper and not kill them prematurely.


  2. Not a bad place to work for but not a company that demands excellence.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work life balance is good if you are in the right group.

    Cons

    Very up and down or mostly pessimistic outlook from wall street. Big compamy but does'nt control market or destiny.

    Advice to Management

    Hire executives that can make a difference and are competent in their field. Dynamic executives don't let Seagate be second.
