    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.

    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    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.
