    Current Employee - Applications Engineer in Cupertino, CA

    I have been working at Seagate Technology as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best things about working here are the co-workers. People I've come into contact with have been down to earth, easy to get a long with and very approachable. You will work hard, but you'll like the team that you're working with and that will make the work enjoyable and rewarding. Each team, depending on the department you're working in will be a different experience. Depending on the team you're in you might have to work some extra hours but the work-life balance is definitely manageable and you'll be able to keep a healthy balance.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons at the moment as I am still going through the training and job interview process. I will update in the future if I have any cons or issues.
