    Cutting-edge technology, exciting products, plenty of new territory to exploit. Decent free benefits.

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy to do my job well. Great coworkers and very interesting products. Fabulous location with wonderful benefits, but the smart people are what really made it a great experience.

    Cons

    It ended too soon. The HR team was was laid-off with the HGST acquisition. So it goes.

    I worked at sTec full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They offer a good salary and also great benefits. It is easy to move from a team to another and learn a lot in a very agile environment.

    Cons

    Chaotic management. The projects get canceled and new projects become high priority very often! Hard to focus on one project/product. Also it does not have the best work environment. No game room, showers, rest area whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better managers!

    I have been working at sTec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The senior executive staff are all fantastic - some of the best bosses I have ever had. The CEO especially knows what he is talking about. He may not always say it the nicest way, but who cares - he is right! The products are great, executive and senior management are top notch, and there is a lot of opportunity here

    Cons

    hard to think of any - I guess the stock isn't doing so well, and maybe some of the procedures that the Malaysia facility use are different which can be confusing when we get their spreadsheets and reports.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing
