    Pros

    Competitive Pay
    Great people+++
    Great cafeteria & gym

    Cons

    Mediocre benefits
    Ongoing layoffs and site closures
    Misdirected C-level leadership

    Advice to Management

    Do something to pull this great company out of its death spiral. Ongoing layoffs and lack of direction have destroyed morale. There is a treasure trove of smart, technical people that are largely not appreciated or listened to. It is a shame what this once great employer has become.

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

    Pros

    Opportunities for the young / newly graduated to get started.

    Cons

    Many layoffs of people who were dedicated and contributing members of organization. Older employees are all at risk. And really, everyone in IT is at risk of having their jobs go to Asia.
    Executives only care about making money for themselves and stock holders. They forget it is their employees who make them successful.

    Advice to Management

    CARE about people... understand that just because someone is older that they do not have a lot to contribute. Do NOT keep transferring everything to Asia.

    Pros

    Company used to be people centric

    Cons

    Behind the times and now are scrambling to get it right. IT going away or overseas. Poisenous atmosphere at this time.

    Upper management needs to do their job and find the right path instead of reacting by dumping employees.
