    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Quality work - Great Learning - Good work opportunities - Flexible working hours - Friendly staff and local Indian management

    Cons

    - Highly political U. S. (SAS SSD) directors. They are only interested in cutting down Indian sites and people by projecting some fancy and convenient data analysis figures to the upper management. None of them are actually worried about the Product. - No visionary and solid SSD architecture team. They always evolve with the requirements even when there is no time to deliver product and blame engineers for their implementation to hide architectural shortcomings. - U.S. engineers working on SSD Firmware Development are immature, arrogant, rude and full of show offs only. They are good at fooling the management. - VPs are biased towards their community people and sites. - Absence of salary hike and annual bonus is an every year story. - Always a threat of U.S. people scrapping the quality work carried out by Indian engineers and rewriting the same with their so called strong and modular code. - Always a threat of layoffs and site closures.

    I worked at Seagate Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed work atmosphere, no pressure and no tracking of every of your move. This works well for responsible employees, but not good for those needed "control" and it blasts the overall discipline.

    Cons

    1. Layoffs in one department push people in other departments to look for another job. Company starts losing resources, which is consequently causing many issues (deadline shifts, need to train new hires, work overtime requests making things even worse). It happens again and again, leaving no resources/experts to support previous product issues, few of experts who decided to stay have to jump back and forth between 3 gen of products... 2. Career advancement can be hard, since the upper management may not recognize your contribution and without their approval no promotions take place. Even when your direct manager does approve. 3. The way company measures your efforts and contribution doesn't work well. They tried to improve it, but... Some talented people always get average score. No matter what you do - you work hard, overtime and finish everything in time, or not putting too much effort.. they get the same score all the time. And at some point leave to company...

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is excellent. Pay and variable comp are good-great depending on job grade. Exposure to semiconductor processing tools can be interesting & technically challenging. Coworkers & culture are great.

    Cons

    Wafer Equipment is staffed by great engineers handicapped by their management structure. Due to negative perception, micromanagement and, or misalignment of stated priorities vs job description and what is best for Seagate, turnover to other groups and outside the company in this group is high. Your success at the job is measured in metrics that you don't have direct control over. Upper management literally sleeps through the mandatory project reviews that are allegedly valued so highly. There is no disciplinary action or consequences for poorly performing technicians & shift placement is seniority based, not on merit. ~4 hours of mandatory, no value add meetings, every single week.

    Pros

    Great people, lots of long time people but that is changing.

    Cons

    Management is out of control. They no longer care about the people. Only money. The company looks good on paper but after you work there a while you see it is all smoke and mirrors. Consistent lay offs and upper management do not listen to SMEs. They keep taking away from the employees yet keep asking them to do more. No work from home which is silly in this day and age. Slow sinking ship. Upper management keep hiring their friends who end up costing the company money. Also the new CIO Ravi is hatcheting away at IT without thought to the consequences. I honestly feel sorry for the over worked people who are left and now waiting to get the hatchets during the next round of rifs.

    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Starting salary and position are good, challenging work

    Cons

    Lack of direction from upper management in SAS SSD and an overall lack of pay increases or promotions for 3-4 years. It seems that major changes in the organization come every 6 months or so and there's no real sense that anyone knows what's going on beyond political maneuvering.
