    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.

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
