      Pros

      Cafe' food is good Some travel is nice. Nice employee groups that do good in the community

      Cons

      The legal department needs to be gutted. Supervisors/Management are so inefficient and unethical. The department reporting system causes so many issues. If you are not in the CA office you are treated like trash. There is no team work. Just a cut throat environment. They do not provide ADA accommodations. Even when asked for. In March of 2020 staff without children were told they still had to report to work, while staff with children were told they could work from home. This was deplorable. Even though it's been over 12 month you still owe each and every employee an apology for telling them their lives weren't important. Non-attorney staff are told that being harassed by internal clients is part of the job. And that we are not allowed to defend ourselves with out getting in trouble. They claim to support diversity and inclusion, but that is not the case. Females are not treated equally. They have policies that do not allow fellow employees to give references. This is horrible for past employees trying to get new jobs. A reference is not the same as an employment verification.

      Pros

      Great coworkers, uncapped flexible time off (although technically "at manager's discretion"), on-site gym with fitness instructors

      Cons

      Upper management seems out of touch with employees. Certain business decisions don't always seem to be well thought out before trying to execute. Us vs Them mentality between design centers.

      Pros

      There is a kind and supportive culture, many employees have been at Seagate for the majority of their careers and have not left because they have been well supported and encouraged to grow. The company is flexible and mindful, with good off-time and holiday policies.

      Cons

      The office is outdated and some projects move very slowly. The compensation is adequate but not exceptional

      Inclusive Employee Focused and Ethical Company

      Mar 9, 2021 - Senior Director in Longmont, CO
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Walks the talk when it comes to caring about its employees. Offers employees the opportunity to seek out new career opportunities. Works with employees to retrain them for new growth areas Vs the typical hire and fire process used by most other high-tech companies. The Seagate culture is to focus on long term shareholder growth and to do it ethically. I have worked for 8 fortune 500 high tech companies in my three decades of high-tech employment and this is the only company that comes close to doing it right. Seagate has proved to me that a corporation can make money (a lot of it) without black mailing their customers, trashing their suppliers and treating their employees and the local communities as a disposable asset. If you are feed up with working in that kind of environment, you might want to look at Seagate.

      Cons

      For the most part everyone at Seagate works hard. Perhaps too hard. Seagate is a worldwide corporation and depending on your assignment you may find yourself working at all hours of the day. With team members in China, India Colo and Cal the sun never sets on Seagate. Managing work life balance can be challenging.
