Me: worked at NRM > 20 yrs. You: who the fukc knows. So listen up, cuz I know stuff. Hammer: bad idea. Way overdue. It won't work. Think about it... you can't put a hammer in a disc drive. It's too big and won't fit. Hammer s are like a... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Seagate Technology Inc.
Building's buyer backed out, leased back to STX for 2 more years?
New Troubles brewing....Time to rethink N.Ireland ?
Now that the Severance Package policy has disappeared from the internal web site any thoughts on what the new one will be? Capped at one month like IBM?
More and more great people are leaving. Whoever has any marketable skill is already gone. It never ceases to amaze me that they are completely indifferent to it, as if they actually want to get rid of the best ones. Totally insane. Can they do... — read more
That’s why we’re here. Spill it.
I’m starting to hate this company. Those at the top just don’t care about us, and it seems to me that there’s no interest at all to stop the sinking of this ship. Seagate has long since become a paradox company. For example, someone has made a good... — read more
I’m well paid here and there aren’t many places where I would be paid that much for the same job as here, but honestly, I would gladly give up part of the salary just to make the atmosphere a little better. It's become unbearable for me to work... — read more
I think those defending HAMR here, are probably the big reason why it’s been such a disaster for years and continues to be. (...) It will work at some point in the future, it will be horribly late though and prevented the company from doing many... — read more
Seagate has always been unstable. I worked there for 8 years and even as my training was ending, we had a layoff and just about every 6 months during my entire time there they had layoffs. Always be prepared to be walked out the door at any given... — read more
The head is leaving. Rumours of large scale cutdowns too.
Seagate Springtown and the underwhelming "Our Future Together" initiative. This bright idea came to the fore because of the behaviours of the Management and the HR department.Seagate Springtown spent a lot of money on this initiative, OFT has been in... — read more
Yeah, they have no idea what people do / need. They think software engineers are “typists”. This continues the trend that’s obvious. We are to be more like contractors and mercenaries for hire. That means you provide your own tools, office, and... — read more
What really bugs me as an employee is how cheap this company has become when it comes to work essentials. Just prior to the pandemic, they instituted some weird policy that we could no longer purchase 24" monitors for our office. I guess they feel... — read more
For the life of me I can't understand how there're still colleagues of mine who think they're safe from layoffs. Come on, rally? Nobody is safe here, unless you’re part of the executive leadership. Last year I saw coworkers with valuable experience... — read more
Here’s my thought: Seagate has been a lay-off machine at any ill wind. They can do what they want when offering severance. But if they make it too low, people will say “Stuff this, I’ll find a better place that values employees better.” In some... — read more
Someone mentioned something about diversity in one of the posts (Does the Business Excellence dept make STX better?). It's a joke. You realize there is a huge lack of diversity at that company. There are less that 4% Latino and 4% black employees and... — read more
Any comments on this LVP that replacing the VEEP :(
This is not a perfect job by far but it's something that's providing me with a steady pay and at least some benefits when so many around me are not that lucky. Those of you who keep complaining about the company should really think about that once in... — read more
I thought a poster was joking that seagate had this department but looked it up and appears real and has an svp running it. What does it do? Have they improved what you do?
Year over year drops can mean only one thing. LAYOFFS
Since this is a anonymous platform, not sure if its 20, 200 or 2000 .. lets try replies ... do this ONCE. if you are current employee say C followed by the next number from the previous reply .. so C1, C2, C3, C4 ... etc If you are an ex... — read more
Rumour of second covid payment but different set of criteria this time . Anyone heard ?
I expect small lay offs, then bigger one about 20% in second week of May. Outsourcing already started.

Just read this and it resonated with me and some of the managers I had at stx. According to Alan Downs, corporate narcissism occurs when a narcissist becomes the chief executive officer (CEO) or other leadership roles within the senior management... — read more
HDD will have price pressure from above as SSD price decreases and pressure from below as Tape makes a comeback. What is our plan as the company gets squeezed?
Seagate is strangled by their incessant need to maintain the dividend. There cannot be any investing with this strategy. Exactly! When the company is focused on the wrong thing it's no wonder we are lagging behind. This affects everything -... — read more
It’s a well known story that acquisitions that Seagate has made have been less than stellar - dot hill, xyratex, SSDs. Seagate seems to continue to struggle in putting the money on the right horses externally. And internally, it’s shambolic outside... — read more
Make a prediction and tell us what you think about Seagate Technology Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
I am hearing important people are jumping ship. Is this true?
Just curious if anyone has heard if a VEEP might be offered next year?
Revenue at $2.3b, down 10% YoY 26% gross margin Riffed an SVP. Unfortunately not SVP business excellence. Any other results? When will q revenue be below $2b?
Rumours that there's going to be a second payment of £700 made to on site workers who've worked through the Pandemic . Different set of criteria this time
A lot of fear in Seagate Springtown over the rising numbers of Covid positive employees.Management seem to be downplaying the numbers involved.The thermal imaging cameras are redundant in the fact that employees with covid can easily pass the thermal... — read more
Could be next month or last week of January. I got this reliable info on Saturday, yes Saturday.
Any insight into why this was done? And what to expect next ?
