Pros

Stable company in a good business. Employees are treated well but moral isn't great due to general big company atmosphere, IMHO.

Cons

Processes, code, etc are more complicated than they should be so much time is spent on trivial problems that don't add any value to the final product. Ownership of key technologies is closely held so innovation often doesn't pay.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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