Network Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJune 19, 2017
Seagate is a good place to work at. The pay rate is reasonable as well. However, there is no job security and there has been several layoffs within the past months.

Typical big corporation
Manager (Former Employee) –  Cupertino, CAJune 16, 2017
Advancement depends a bit on politics and being part of the old boys club. You can get a lot out of it depending on your motivation and aspirations. Some people were drowning in work, while others got away with a lot less workload. They pay lip service to the concept of worklife balance.

Seagate is a typical established global technology company
Senior Marketing Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Cupertino, CAJune 5, 2017
One of 2 leading companies (the other is WD) in hard drive technologies. Located in Silicon Valley but not comparable with the other high tech companies. Hard working people and had a couple of round of layoffs in the past year.

Great place to grow, advance and learn new things. unfortunately, the job there did not reflect stability.

Engineer (Current Employee) –  Longmont, COMay 9, 2017
Great 9-5 career. If you are motivated and hard working there will always be a place for you at Seagate. Typical boom and bust tech cycles can be stressful.

A great place to grow
Managing Principal Engineer (Former Employee) –  Longmont, COMay 1, 2017
I see Seagate sometimes getting a bad rap about management and direction. I really think the management does the best it can with prioritizing under a very ambitious work load. Seagate can an extremely collaborative, supportive, and rewarding place to work. Great people, very good lab equipment, and lots of fun challenges.

This company's right hand didn't know what the left was doing as it was too large and this was just a small piece of it. The job was fun and kept me very busy and entertained

Extremely bureaucratic, constant reorgs and downsizings
HR (Former Employee) –  NormandaleApril 18, 2017
Extremely bureaucratic, constant reorgs and downsizings, as the industry is shifting from rotating magnetic drives to Solid State. Due to the many layers of management, the decision-making process is slow.
Pros
Good commute
Cons
Bureaucracy and uncertainty

Internship
Electrical Supplier Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Longmont, COApril 10, 2017
Seagate was my first internship. I worked a typical 8/40 schedule. The work I was assigned wasn't necessarily related to my major. I also seemed to lack enough work to keep me busy despite offering to take on more work on numerous occasions. With all the free time, I was able to learn about many different topics and see what kind of work the experienced engineers in the group did. Pay was really good for my amount of experience.
Pros
pay, manager, co-workers
Cons
low work load

Good Company
Engineering Services Intern V - Full Time (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNApril 7, 2017
Streamlined business structure. A good relationship with Google helps the company to stay cutting edge. Most of the employees are very nice and intelligent. The only real downfalls of the company were that demand for hard drives have fallen and a large round of layoffs always seems to be looming. The location isn't ideal for me since it is located in Minnesota and can get extremely cold. If you like the cold, Minneapolis is a very nice city and Seagate would be a great career.
Pros
Gym, Wellness Programs, Good Work Life Balance
Cons
Layoffs, Location, Can Sometimes be boring
