Not a good place to work anymore
Senior Management (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJuly 4, 2018
Massive changes in Management and direction of company. RIFs are inevitable, stay away. Promotes work/life balance, but does not demonstrate. Used to be great place to work.

Great Place to Work
Account Management Specialist (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJune 22, 2018
Ex-employee, was a great place to work. Could not ask for a better group of peers to work with and had a great management group. Would still be there if not for being caught up in their recent layoffs.
Pros
Great people to work with. Made it easy to go to work every day.
Cons

Loved working at Seagate
Senior Technical Specialist, Firmware Development (Former Employee) –  Longmont, COJune 18, 2018
Internal management struggles tore it apart in 2008-2009. They couldn't decide on a single platform design, and then the recession hit. Just bad timing.

From a regular operator's point of view
Prototype Operator (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJune 18, 2018
As a regular employee operating tools, Seagate is just okay to work for.
Seagate goes by seniority, so a lazy person will get promoted before you just because they were hired on first, even though you work harder and faster.

Management are clueless to what goes on on the factory floor, and rarely discipline their "favorites" for abuse of policy and break time. This includes harassments.

Pay is mediocre when compared to other companies, especially when you factor in the grueling 12 hours night shift covered from head to toe in gowning while on your feet for that whole 12 hours. It gets hot and hard to breathe at times.

If you're new, you will be stuck on 12 hours night shift for YEARS.

Fun place to work
Technical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJune 14, 2018
Talking to customers about issues that they are having with their drive issues with their computer.

I learn different ways to resolve issues weather it is on a PC or Mac system .

Management is very helpful and understanding, always willing to help.

There is never a hard part of my job I love doing what I do.

Be able to help others with issues they do not understand and provide information to the Customer.
Pros
good work environment, Breaks in the day

Wouldn't work here
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJune 13, 2018

Pros
Good pay. Paid every week

IT is Layoff Happy

Continuous improvements is important to the company
SENIOR MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Longmont, COJune 7, 2018
The company really tries to continually elevate its culture. Unfortunately, like most large corporations, old habits die hard for some of the upper management. If you want change and have out of the box ideas, it will be tough to navigate through innovating.
Pros
Failures are necessary for success and are a learning opportunity
Cons
No internal technology innovation

Reducing cost was the primary mission, management structured and rigid.
R&D Staff Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJune 2, 2018
Pay is good, individual contributors get along well. There are some really good smart people employed. If tough challenges are your thing, these do exist, no award is given for doing your job.
Management is paid more than the workers. Everyone shows up to the office by 9:00am and looks at the calendar for the mandatory meetings.
Projects are doled out to in a interesting way, the shorter your name is the more likely it is you will land a more interesting project. The amount of effort in those extra-letters in your name can make the difference.
When looking for project help the phrase often heard was: "Good Luck with that." in a syndical sort of way. Everyone was stretched to there maximum productivity.
Pros
Good pay, Interesting problems
Cons
Job insecurity both in Management, and Individual contributors.

Time spent as technical support phone agent (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKMay 31, 2018
Started out great years ago now they just want all of the full time employees to leave. We are all about to be laid off but they will not tell us when. This is typical of our current management.

Account Manager (Former Employee) –  United StatesMay 29, 2018
My overall experience at Seagate has been a positive one, as I had the opportunity to move into various, challenging roles. As with any large company, one's experience will be based largely on the role of their direct management, and I was very lucky in that aspect.
