    I have been working at Seagate Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not a high stress environment, Seagate Way is a good idea

    Cons

    Upper management does not embrace the Seagate Way. Each year another benefit is taken away (Stock options, RSUs, earned vacation time, PPO). Is upper management trying to tell us something?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back RSUs and earned vacation time based on longevity if you value your employees.

    I worked at Seagate Technology

    Pros

    Decent pay, low lighting was a plus.

    Cons

    Contract-to-hire for phone tech support is never fun, all the work without the benefits. The staffing company does not screen candidates well. Some of the contractors had questionable mental stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better documentation/communication from the people developing the backup software.
