    Pros

    Many smart people work together on challenging projects. Most people have worked for Seagate at least a decade, but there is room for upward movement as people transfer internally or retire. The leaders give employees room to experiment and have a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Employee reorganizations happen often, are sudden, and can be accompanied by layoffs. The reorgs are top-down with little input from the bulk of employees. Some upper level managers seem ignorant to rising technological disruptions.

    Advice to Management

    Share information freely with employees that concerns job security. Try to limit the number of meetings in the workplace to improve efficiency.
