    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Seagate has some really cool new technology and are trying hard to increase market share. With some teams there is good flexibility and training.

    Cons

    The salary is fairly uncompetitive, the atmosphere is circa 1989, the management team struggles to adhere to an objective and seems to have challenges articulating their business goals.
    Titles and career paths are fairly opaque. With the exception of taking six to ten years for advancement, there really is not the opportunity for upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Certain projects take a bit of time to mature, trust the people you hire to give you accurate timelines instead of "pivoting" too quickly.

    Pros

    Interesting technical job, good compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Large company feel - too many policies and bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    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.
