    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Is a World wide company with vast resources and many different opportunities relating to all things data storage. They are currently are positioning themselves to continue to be an industry leader in a changing storage media environment.
    The benefits are fairly industry standard, which is to say they are good. There are always opportunities for internal career movement and they do a good job of allowing for a good work life balance.

    Cons

    It is a very large company and can make one feel small especially when decisions come down from on high that seem arbitrary. Recently they have been downsizing and expecting more from fewer employees creating opportunities for challenge but also high levels of pressure/stress.

    Pros

    Good camaraderie. Everyone willing to help each other.

    Cons

    As a contract worker, I didn't get any benefits (health insurance, paid time off, etc). Seagate didn't want to hire contracts full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Show your commitment to retaining talented people by hiring them full-time.
