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

    Pros

    There is work-life balance there.
    People there are generally nice.

    Cons

    Poor career advancement.
    Training provided is not well organised.
    Poor bonus payout.
    High turnover rate which leads to loss of technical knowledge and wastage of resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to pay the employees better and provide better benefits to attach them to stay in the company.
    The high turnover rate is not going to benefit the company if skilled employees leaves the company which results in loss of technical knowledge.
    Need to provide better training for new hires as current training is unorganised and uneffective.

    I worked at Seagate Technology as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful talented individuals working constantly to overcome highly political division management to deliver for the outstanding executive team and company as a whole. Creative, professional teams and strong peer support make environment worth the headaches.

    Cons

    Meetings, meetings, meetings, and taboo subjects due to multiple acquisitions create a two-tiered culture. Productivity and profitability, particularly for Branded Solutions, is hiding the enormous potential. Habitual dismissal and de-hiring of top performers to protect status quo is costly and impactful to morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives awarding positions based on past performance excellence may want to consider domain expertise, particularly with regard to B2B vs B2C and software. While margins are ok, they are unnecessarily lean, and at risk with each release due to the lack of integration of division management in the tangible decisions being made each day "around" those executives to save product P&L.
