    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting technical job, good compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Large company feel - too many policies and bureaucracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seagate Way initiative does not work below director's level - it's a declaration with very little touch with reality. iMAP performance evaluation system is still a joke even after changes in FY15 and the reason for frustration for many good employees. Get rid of it and make something from the scratch.

    Pros

    Fantastic culture. Management is fantastic, listens to employees and provides solutions. I would still be there if I didnt relocate for family reasons

    Cons

    Very few challenges that could not be overcome. A little difficulty with off shore locations being able to schedule meetings with appropriate people at convenient times for everyone involved.

    I have been working at Seagate Technology

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was eager to help me get started. They also spent extra time helping me and others. Enjoyable place to work

    Cons

    Will there be growth in HDD sales in 5 years or will it be flash? Questionable long term HDD opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Are they properly looking to the future and investing in flash? When flash gets to 0.20 cents per gig, HDDs are a tough sell.

    Pros

    - Super nice people, always lend you their hands when you need.
    - Work/Life balance = excellent

    Cons

    Dont have anything to complaint about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotion should be given to whom who is most deserved (in case that person is very well deserved), not based on number of service years. Or else, we gonna lose a lot of "full of energy" young talented persons.
