    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Good Working Environment
    2. Good employee benefit

    Cons

    1. Too much politics at work. Manager requested his staffs to frame, sabotage his competitors eg. the staffs / director / departmental manager.
    2. Need to pay manager's entertainment fee after office hours.
    3. IT manager without knowing IT technical knowledge.
    4. Company has further study sponsorship policy for employees. But manager rejected my application. I applied 4 years' for further study, but success neither.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Top management must be very careful of the working cultures. Don't tolerate manager playing too much politic game. Requests them to put more focus on work instead of politic game.
    2. Need to review manager's competency and working attitude.
    3. Most of the engineers dissatisfied with the performance of IT department.
    4. Need to put more regards pertaining to many senior staffs' leaving.

    - Super nice people, always lend you their hands when you need.

    Dont have anything to complaint about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotion should be given to whom who is most deserved (in case that person is very well deserved), not based on number of service years. Or else, we gonna lose a lot of "full of energy" young talented persons.
