    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time

    Pros

    I had the chance to work with cutting edge storage technology and introduce new ways of bringing our products to market. Some of the management there was great.

    Cons

    Made some TERRIBLE management decisions that cost a lot of people their jobs. This was pre-Mosley, but they were always prone to hiring senior people who were arrogant know-it-alls and impossible to work with.

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with some incredible people while at Seagate. The environment was laid back, yet professional. I felt like my ideas were respected and the PTO was generous.

    Cons

    The biggest downside by far was the constant layoffs. It's never fun to worry everyday if your job will be there the next.

    Advice to Management

    Keep advancing and diversifying beyond just traditional hard disk drives. Also, don't jump so quickly to layoffs as a solution.
