    I worked at Seagate Technology

    Pros

    Understanding and supportive management, Employees are encouraged to speak up and contribute. Management is pro-active to provide support to employees who're trying their best to contribute to the company positively.

    Cons

    Like every other companies, there are bound to be politics around and disagreement with some of the company's policies. I would say the working environment is quite good in comparison to other MNCs locally.

    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic culture. Management is fantastic, listens to employees and provides solutions. I would still be there if I didnt relocate for family reasons

    Cons

    Very few challenges that could not be overcome. A little difficulty with off shore locations being able to schedule meetings with appropriate people at convenient times for everyone involved.

    Pros

    Interesting technical job, good compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Large company feel - too many policies and bureaucracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seagate Way initiative does not work below director's level - it's a declaration with very little touch with reality. iMAP performance evaluation system is still a joke even after changes in FY15 and the reason for frustration for many good employees. Get rid of it and make something from the scratch.

    I have been working at Seagate Technology

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was eager to help me get started. They also spent extra time helping me and others. Enjoyable place to work

    Cons

    Will there be growth in HDD sales in 5 years or will it be flash? Questionable long term HDD opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Are they properly looking to the future and investing in flash? When flash gets to 0.20 cents per gig, HDDs are a tough sell.
