    Pros

    Gym and cafeteria. Most of the people are nice.

    Cons

    No appreciation by departmental managers for the amount of hours spent working

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees more. Don't pit employees against each other by favoring one over the other. Also have HR check to make sure that salaries are in line with what was talked about in the last company meeting as well as in line with employees review. I think you will be surprised at what you see.

    Pros

    I have an awesome manager who really cares about developing his team.
    My team is high performing and collaborative.
    The campus has great amenities, it is a very comfortable place to work.
    Great work/life balance.
    Hard Drives are an interesting product in a fascinating industry, and it's exciting right now because we have the best technology and the best products.

    Cons

    Seems like enjoyment at Seagate is contingent on which manager you have.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people into management who are passionate about development and communication, not just good engineers.

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and time flexibility are good compared to similar height tech storage companies.

    Cons

    While HDD products are leaders in their class, SSDs are another story. The management on the flash side seems to come from a different mold and are not able to deliver competitive, quality products in a timely manner. This lack of execution then permeates through the ranks and results in a repeating cycle of lackluster engineering, which further results in low morale, layoffs, and the best folks leaving for greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    It’s unlikely that the current management is truly open to any advice, meaning .... (the obvious)

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time

    Pros

    Excellent pay but not much else

    Cons

    Worst job I've had in my career. Management obviously have their 'boys' and go out of their way to sabotage you if you don't play along. Other departments may not be this way but from what I observed it was pretty much suck up to the boss or he'll make your life miserable. I absolutely hated my time at Seagate.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your narcissistic managers. I've observed and heard them literally cussing out their customers, co-workers from other depts, and preaching that the only group in the company that knew what was going on was their on.
