Rough and tumble

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsScrappy little company. The people there work hard. The facilities at some locations are very good and include nice little benefits like excellent espresso machines and open space to sit and collaborate.

ConsThis company seems to be thrashing. Disk drives are a commodity, and they really seem to need to move into the next big thing.

Advice to Senior ManagementRamp up the commitment to employees. Clear out the deadwood, reward and recognize the ones you want to keep with benefits they see as motivating. Offer more learning and development opportunities for your people, and move your infrastructure at all sites into this decade.
