Pros

One of the best reasons to work for Seagate is that it is a fairly big company with plenty of work to do. The colleagues I work with a very driven and intelligent and I enjoy working alongside them. There is a lllllottt of work and so the sluggish economy does not have any effect on the morale of the people because there is no fear about no work = layoffs.

Cons

The disc drive business is cut-throat, and most of the time the leads are stressed out, which reflects on their behavior towards their coworkers.

Advice to Management

Senior management need to pull themselves together without ego and politics coming in the way.

    Pros

    Good corporate culture for such a large company. Everyone seemed to work together very well together, and the Shrewsbury office seemed like a small family. The knowledge base of the Shrewsbury office is extraordinary. The wealth of knowledge from the people that have worked there since the Digital days is extremely beneficial.

    Cons

    The major downside, for myself, a college student, is the high average age of the company. There are hardly any employees under 30, and the knowledge from experience in the industry is lacking for anyone starting out. Besides this there are not too many downsides to the corporate culture of Seagate.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to give to the Senior Management is to continue promoting youthfulness inside the company. Begin to hire recent college graduates in order to transfer the knowledge base to a new generation of workers.
