    Internship - Great learning experience.

    Intern (Former Employee) Shakopee, MN

    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!

    Overall, great place to work.

    Senior Staff Engineer (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsGreat compensation, flexible hours and good work/life balance, plethora of challenging projects to work on. Good opportunities for lateral moves.

    ConsLittle opportunity for career advancement. Groups tend to work in silos. Some white collar positions now being farmed out to Asia.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps some consolidation or better collaboration among groups -- seems there are too many orgs and design centers to keep track of and support.
