unfortunate. I did not see any other avenues
10% from Asia....any news from US?
F— Outlook. Just my two cents. I hope the CIO gets fired for this b—s— just like he got demoted from corporate strategy for his b—s—. You may have saved money moving us to office but the productivity is going to be lost in the millions... — read more

Dave Mosley and the Seagate leadership team for best adaptation of a functioning, successful company.
Good read and what we are seeing in the market. Of course very different from all hands meeting propaganda. https://blocksandfiles.com/2020/02/07/hard-disks-disappear-small-data-centres/
Where are all the HR people or execs pretending things have gotten better and there will be growth? The numbers speak for themselves. Without low interest rates, employee voluntary attrition, and threat of layoffs this company would be in bankruptcy... — read more
Having so many layoffs in the past, what happened to employees when they get laid off? Do they usually get a better job, a worse job or just retire? Considering also that the average age of seagaters are late 40’s to early 50’s.
Do you know what are top three locations in terms of employee count? Also, how many work at Dublin?
On the cards, list is getting ready
They can’t increase dividend anymore, as profit continue to decline. Debt is alarming. Need to cut 15% employees
Do you think it is a good signal? You people can whine here about how FUBAR Seagate is or get off your backsides and get a job in a better company. Hard drive market share is rapidly declining, and isn't coming back. Care to guess how that... — read more

Are we going to do better this earning or flunk? The stock has been trending up for quite some time!
Hiring freeze in my team even though we desperately need more people. Is it a bad signal?
There is no hope for promotion.
At some point they have to file for bankruptcy. Debt is too high.
I don't know when it happened but just realized this
I left a year ago when it became totally obvious that we were all being played with buzzwords and make believe new markets that will save HDD like IT 4.0, autonomous driving, 5g without consideration for loss of notebook, mission critical... — read more
Mark my words, they are only getting started with ridding this company of its best employees. The worst is yet to come.
I remember Ravi Naik rolled into town in February or March after the quarterly results reported in last January were less than stellar and he said something to the effect of "I know you may be nervous, but don't be because we've reduced IT spend (cut... — read more
List is out. Stx likely to increase dividend after the lay off. Dothill revenue is a concern.
Most of the talented people moved to other companies. People who stayed there useless people who can’t find another job, especially LCO. If they lose this job they are done. Lot of h1b slaves who graduated from level 2 universities have to go back.
What happened to our HAMR drives? Have we started mass production?
You know, at one time there must've been dozens of companies makin' buggy whips. And I'll bet the last company around was the one that made the best goddamn buggy whip you ever saw. Now how would you have liked to have been a stockholder in that... — read more
