    I worked at Seagate Technology

    Pros

    Understanding and supportive management, Employees are encouraged to speak up and contribute. Management is pro-active to provide support to employees who're trying their best to contribute to the company positively.

    Cons

    Like every other companies, there are bound to be politics around and disagreement with some of the company's policies. I would say the working environment is quite good in comparison to other MNCs locally.

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    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.

    8 hours a day in a cubicle. At least there are some breaks though.
