Awesome Place to Work, Learn, Grow

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Cupertino, CA

I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people and environment at Seagate are amazing.
-Positive Environment
-Reasonable demands
-Spirit of growth, learning and innovation
-Realistic expectations of work hours
-Awesome management
-Great Learning opportunities

ConsSeagate is an old manufacturing company, it is still a bit slow to adapt.

It's tough to get contracts with vendors executed in a timely manner, making it a bit challenging to meet goals.

Leadership can be a bit harsh and occasionally unrealistic in their demands for speed to market for certain programs.

Every campus has different perks and benefits, so it's hard to speak for the company as a whole, but the Cupertino campus is limited as far as recreational (gym, cafeteria) options, and the locker room is seriously tiny and lacking in privacy.

Advice to Senior Managementtake away some of the red tape and allow us to be more agile

Internship - Great learning experience.

Intern (Former Employee)
Shakopee, MN

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

ProsI had a summer internship with Seagate. I was connected with a mentor who helped me during the summer. It was a wonderful learning experience and it greatly impacted my future career. I ended up continuing on to Grad school and working for a different company more closely aligned with my research field, but I still keep in touch with my Seagate mentor.

ConsMy experience was as a summer intern, so I'm not sure I got to know the work environment deep enough to find any flaws with it.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm very grateful for your internship program!
