I worked at Seagate Technology as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The company has a tradition of their well designed intern program. The HR department planned a lot of events (almost every week~) especially for the interns to educate us about almost every aspects of the company, including their product, technology, general operation architecture, company culture, internal career path and so on. We've got quite a few opportunities to interact with people at all levels, especially the top management teams. Employees in the Minnesota site are generally very nice. Most of other interns said their intern projects are fun, including mine.

Cons

Many employees spend 2/3 of their time on meetings. Not sure if it is a good thing for productivity.

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to have a very good manager who made sure I had challenging projects, access to necessary resources, and who made sure I was introduced to those around the company that might help me farther down the line. Work-Life balance was also very good...until the off-shoring model, that is.

    Cons

    Recent company hiring changes have made it impossible to ever see a raise without changing jobs. Also, 'hiring from within' is no longer the custom. The company's openly stated hiring strategy is to hire the most inexperienced person (read: youngest) who might be able to handle the job as a way to keep salary costs down. In addition, international teams require late nights for US workers.
