ProsGreat, plenty to do. Great goals from upper level management

ConsThe Mid Level Management needs to be replace in Branded - Operations and the Commodity director

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who know what they are doing at Mid Level management, instead being more concern with which supplier that are taking them out for lunch

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Traditional Organization

Senior Product Engineer (Current Employee)
Samut Prakan (Thailand)

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

Pros+Work Life Balance: Quite easy going slow pace routine job. Friendly working environment. No pushing.
+product/function based organization. For example, every product line have their own PM, engineer, manufacturing team, mechanic, QC, R&D, etc. Making every individual have clear view of their job response.

Cons-hierarchy too vertical, too complex, making the company difficult to improve policy, adapt new strategy, or even change some minor processes.
-traditional performance review, based upon politics and seniority.

Advice to Senior ManagementShorten the organization hierachy will make the company much more adaptive and agile

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
