    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual environment
    Great people to work with for the most part
    Exposure to other cultures around the globe
    Middle management is sold as they come
    Pays well
    Family first is not only preached, but practiced. That's been the biggest positive by far. I don't miss kids games or events, none.

    Cons

    Executive Mngt seems to have zero clue where the industry is going and no idea how a company actually runs anymore. They're seriously out of touch. They have have made some absolutely terribly mergers and mistakes and have yet to be held accountable. Top brass makes a buddy deal to acquire a company, loses $160M on it 2 years later, and they get bonuses while the worker bees are left to fend for themselves or get laid off. Yay.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. If you're going to preach accountability, you need to start living it. The same people are making bad decision after bad decision and you're all laughing to the bank.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Denver, CO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone Interview. I applied several weeks ago and the recruiter and I emailed back and forth about positions. Then she sent me a request from a group for a phone interview. I scheduled the phone interview, and the man called right on time. I answered questions. I am still waiting to hear back from the recruiter if they want an in person interview, but I should be hearing soon.
