    You say you value the employees, but there is a lay-off every year, for the past 5 years. Tell the truth, you don't have a clue how to turn the business around.

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and time off policy

    Cons

    Pay below market rate, pay based more on seniority than individual contributions

    Advice to Management

    Base pay more on performance and contributions and less on seniority. Paying younger employees less than their older counterparts for the same (or better) work is very demotivating. There is no reason to work hard if the only option for employees to increase their pay is wait around till their next scheduled promotion every 3 to 5 years.
