No opinion of CEO

I worked at HGST as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people overall to work with, very smart. Variety of work is interesting. Definite work-life balance.

Cons

Staffing in some groups are done quickly without consideration for actually staffing the best people for the job. The group interaction because of this is strained and there is high turnover. Also, there seems to be an unprofessional interaction between employees who have been with the company for a number of years to new employees, making it difficult to fit in.

Advice to Management

Instill a one-team mentality where employees interact positively and respect each other.
