    The salary, benefits, and bonus money were all terrific. I was very happy working for the company.

    Sometimes, there is an implication that you need to work the weekend and during off-hours.

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Good friends, reasonable pay, stock purchase program, dental, vision, 401k.

    Cons

    Horrible little perks like no employee purchase plan for drives (cheaper to get from newegg or Amazon). Cheating out with HD heal plans.

    Pros

    1) LEADERSHIP! I can't speak for every level, but I can say that my direct manager and his manager are very supportive, focusing on mentoring and building our skill set and acumen.
    2) Culture - again, this is based on department or organization, but we have a team mentality. It is truly a culture based on cooperation and collaboration. (Sales Org) This is a reflection on leadership, and the choices they have made in building a great team.
    3) Flexibility! This may roll under leadership again, but they are very accommodating, very understanding. This holds much more weight that any incremental raise, or frankly even a very large raise! I truly do enjoy what it is I do, and I always feel as if I am valued and part of something larger, greater.

    Cons

    1) Process - The way Sales must interact with collections / pricing. It is improving, but still has a long way to go. Ways to facilitate this are communication and other departments realizing that sales is driving revenue, and as a result, these departments must not just support sales, but work in conjunction with them and show a sense of urgency, pro activeness when approaching their daily routine / duties.
    2) Marketing - Channel Marketing is actually moving the needle, but the department that gets all the marketing funds, AKA Global Marketing is slow to react. When they do react, it is very REACTIONARY and not proactive. Too many politics and the aforementioned process slows down any sort of effort or momentum, if any. As a result, our growth, while evident, isn't fulfilling the potential it could.

    Advice to Management

    I can only say thank you to current leadership, again, director and senior director are the only ones I can vouch for, but thank you for making this a place where people want to be, for taking the time to lead and mentor, and for standing up and supporting your team, your people, which in turn makes them want to work and fight hard for you, the team, and Seagate.

    Pros

    - Seagate provides a competitive hourly pay compared to other tech companies.
    - Everyone is extremely nice
    - The work is not exhausting or boring. You learn a lot about your field of study while in a workplace setting.
    - Depending on the location, there are a lot of fun events and activities sponsored by Seagate like ping pong tournaments, ice cream socials, and company parties.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    I was not there long enough to notice anything that could need improvement.

    Pros

    Not a high stress environment, Seagate Way is a good idea

    Cons

    Upper management does not embrace the Seagate Way. Each year another benefit is taken away (Stock options, RSUs, earned vacation time, PPO). Is upper management trying to tell us something?

    Advice to Management

    Bring back RSUs and earned vacation time based on longevity if you value your employees.

    Pros

    Decent pay, low lighting was a plus.

    Cons

    Contract-to-hire for phone tech support is never fun, all the work without the benefits. The staffing company does not screen candidates well. Some of the contractors had questionable mental stability.

    Advice to Management

    Better documentation/communication from the people developing the backup software.

  11. Great place to spend the rest of my career.

    Very casual, laid back environment. Relaxed management. Team oriented environment. Work from home opportunities in some departments, incredible benefits, on site gym and cafe, Starbucks coffee, best place to work in IT in Oklahoma. Amazing work/life balance.

    Cons

    Only worked here for 6 months, but haven't found anything yet that would make me ever want to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Best management team I have worked for so far. Continue to share your path to the future with your teams providing outstanding vision.
