    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time

    Pros

    - Benefits
    - People that work there
    - Near home
    - GREAT receptionist

    The people that work here are great. They are overworked though and many are heading out the door as soon as the next VERP (Voluntary Employee Retirement Program) is offered.

    Cons

    - HR isn't much help
    - The benefits aren't going to be as good as they once were with ObamaCare now

    The two biggest issues this company has is that they will not hire anyone over 45 or if they don't have degrees even though they have more experience and knowledge than you could ever earn in a college.

    Advice to Management

    Management - first, get your heads out of your butts. Those people that have worked hard years for you? Appreciate them. Don't take their vacation days away from them like you are doing. The ones that you won't hire because of age and degrees - they may be JUST what you need! One of these days you may just get sued for your age discrimination. I hope so!

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

    Pros

    Great people, company treats them fairly.

    Cons

    The work is sometimes dry and monotonous; not a commitment to software excellence - just "get it done" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Better match skills and interests to positions.
