I have been working at HGST full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

From a business perspective, they have very good people, transparent management style, and have a strategy, not just tactics. From a benefits perspective, San Jose employees have access to free on-site CrossFit classes, good cafeteria (but a little expensive), and decent bonus plan when the company hits its targets.

Cons

long-time employees overlooked for advancement opportunities,

Advice to Management

new blood is great, but don't overlook recognizing your long-time work horses.

    Pros

    Good work environment, excellent people, good drive to be the best

    Cons

    Small growth in regular compensation and growing dependence on bonuses. Also, company is becoming too invested on reusing or making marginal improvements to old technology in current products at the expense of developing new technologies to face future challenges and ensure long term growth

    Advice to Management

    Watch the future, keep an eye on emerging challenger technologies
