Driving Operating Costs Down

The writing is on the wall for all of us at Seagate - if you live in a high cost location you will at some point be eliminated. It's so obvious that they want to aggressively reduce costs and folks in China, Malaysia and India are so much cheaper... read more

Pay freeze!
