    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fast paced environment (in SSD). Campus encouraged fun workplace culture. Down time at some points in the year to counter the high-intensity points otherwise.

    Cons

    Frequent Layoffs. Decisions made at a high level that don't necessarily react to the future based off of current engineering trends. Feast or Famine style development, bouncing between bored and working weekends.

  7. "Decent starter company"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Firmware Engineer II in Longmont, CO

    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work life balance Embedded feature development Good culture-- helpful people. Talented people at engineering management positions. Longmont facility has a gym, and cafeteria offers food at subsidized rates

    Cons

    With the SSD division: Cancelled programs Restructuring We just had a huge reduction in work force-- this poses a risk for the more senior employees. New grads are likely to be moved on another project. Bonuses aren't that great, especially for new grads. This depends on how the company has been performing and your performance.

  8. "Analyst"

    5.0
    Former Employee - Total Customer Experience Analyst in Cupertino, CA

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best part of my job is the people and the environment. I am so fortunate to be part of a team that has wonderful people who are transparent, coaching, learning, and pushing each other to the best of their ability. Demanding your best every day.

    Cons

    I will say the onboarding package is something that I will change, so people can be able to know more about Seagate and their products not only just the description of the position they are hiring for.
