Co-workers great, executives not.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The co-workers in the company were hard working, genuine and team players. It was enjoyable from that standpoint. There was a lot of innovation within the ranks. However, executive management was very narrow minded and did not know how to take the company into the future. They also had absolutely no loyalty to long-term employees. Thinking that they could survive on lower grade, lower paid employees.

Ok place to work

Good work-life balance. Lots of new technology. Lots of support in technical aspects. Lay offs every 6 months have been common in past 2 years. Good management with some bad apples. Communication and team work can be improved

Wouldn't want to work anywhere else

Such a great place to work. Cutting edge technology and tools to work with. Close to home, great benefits and great people to work with every day. I also love the employee discount on products.

Highly advanced, on the cutting edge of data storage technology, Very interesting, strong R&D culture.

Seagate is a leader in data storage technology. The systems are incredibly complex with a drive to secure new process technology. The US is home for much of the R&D. Once processes a mature they are transferred to off-shore manufacturing facilities. Likewise, Seagate follows a trend in the high tech arena, it ebbs and flows with economic needs. The current trend is for much of the technology to be taken off shore. Hence a decline in the US engagement. The most exciting part of employment was the engagement with incredibly talented people of all kinds.


Engagement with incredibly talented people of all kinds.


The frequent market condition rollercoaster. Will there be a position for me tomorrow.

Ok to work at.

Working as an operator is hard. They treat you very low. But I have some friendly co-workers. I wouldn't recommend you work as an operator. Unless you are going to school at the same time.

Great work environment. Scary future

Coworkers and the work itself are great. Lots of flexibility as long as work is getting done. Interesting projects. However top management has made some poor choices. Multiple layoffs in recent months with more likely coming.

Good overall

Company in general seems to care about its employees. Big company with many sub divisions which will determine what your work life looks like. Lack of prioritization/direction from high up seems to create competition among the various small groups. A bit chaotic at times. Probably not too different of an experience from another company doing similar work. Few engineers who do the actual work (and hence overworked/stressed). Many managers who report on what others do.


Benefits, flex time off, bonuses, generous maternity/paternity leaves, creativity is encouraged and hard work is rewarded


Frequent layoffs

Great culture, but the pay and job security are major problems

Great place to go to work; the culture at the lower levels is very laid back while still being helpful and productive. However, the pay scales are far from competitive and the threat of losing your job when the stock drops is always there, no matter how experienced you are.

Excellent team and learning curve

Extremely kind and understanding managers. Great place to learn. Good pay and great interview experience. They take great care of interns. Great work opportunity.

Great people, relaxed atmosphere

Great people, relaxed atmosphere. Salary is low for younger engineers, but in context of the flexibility and benefits it's still pretty good. Interesting product, but a lot of older, complex systems and often a lot of seagate specific knowledge is needed to get anything done.

Best Place I've worked at

Friendly team full of knowledgeable people to learn from and work with. The team trust their workers, and in turn everyone are very motivated to put out our best work to meet Seagate's high standards. I've learned a lot during my time at Seagate. Definitely would love to work here again!

Not enough resources: Do more with less

I don't recommend Seagate to others anymore. While working on high requirement drives can be enticing, the company makes it increasingly difficult to want to participate in the effort. Turnover has been out of control over thr past 4 years, multiple years of company wide salary/promotion freezes, and severe layoffs. Most teams don't have enough resources to meet program requirements.


Good rec center, Espp


Salary freezes during most of my 10 year tenure, not enough engineering resources, lack of promotions, bad IT/HR departments, indecisive leadership, no proper training for new engineers

Good place

Good work life balance. Need strong self-motivation. Several rounds of layoffs recently, I guess maybe due to some previously wrong business decisions.

Three years ago it was a great employer. I would not work for them again under the current management. The push WOKE idealogy.

What is the best part of working at the company?The Co workers I worked with excellent. At one time Seagate had one of the best engineering teams around. That is no longer true due to all the lay offs.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Constant lay offs. Never knowing if you would be laid off next.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?3 years ago the culture was excellent. Current management has been sucking cash out of the company to pay their stock bonuses. No investments have been made to find new meaningful markets. What is a typical day like for you at the company?No typical day. sometimes lab work, sometimes meetings.
