    Pros

    Good tech company with plenty to offer to engineering employees.
    Great work environment with state of the art building and technology.
    Good emphasis on improving and streamlining processes to be more efficient.

    Cons

    Lots of re-organization going on with mergers and acquisitions.
    Work life balance is good, and supported
    Opportunity for growth is limited once you reach the middle levels of management or technical fields.

    Current Employee - Technical Support Engineer in West Valley City, UT

    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management is very hands off. If you like a micro-management style or a "hand holding" style, this is not the type of environment for you. The plus side of this type of management is the fact that you are given the freedom to experiment with different projects to better your surroundings.

    The people on the staff are great and are willing to help. The culture of the support staff is laid back yet productive.

    The exposure you get in this position is very rewarding. You will be supporting all sorts of platforms and software. This is a great place to get a foot hold on all sorts of areas.

    Cons

    Being in the technical support staff with Evault is challenging in that there is a constant flow of tickets and there are not enough people staffed to meet the requirements of provided premier support. The average ticket count on one's plate will be 25 - 35 tickets.

    You might feel stretched thin and wish you could focus your skills in fewer areas. In the future, if more people are hired, this might be a possibility.

    Cool new technology to work with, great work life balance and lots of work for motivated individuals

    Very hard to grow within company, lots of bureaucracy to deal with and note many opportunities for talented individual contributors to grow into leadership positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen bureaucracy for mid level experienced individual contributors to grow within the company, reduce top heavy management.

    Pros

    Seagate is very flexible with work life balance. Everyone works hard to get products released and keep customers happy.

    Cons

    Work is always intense with long hours. Nothing great ever comes from easy work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always say thank you to employees for great work. Bonuses are always a great way to show appreciation, but at least saying thank means a lot.
