Topics regarding layoffs at Seagate Technology Inc.
I’ve been working at NRM for more than a decade. What I am seeing is people in management from a certain ethnic group support their group to move them to next levels, to management and during layoffs. In the last 6-7 layoffs, I’ve not seen many or... read more

Do I get paid for unused vacation days if I'm laid off?
Dropped revenue of 25 percent from 2 quarters ago, 700 million decrease. Resulted in 83 cents per share of earnings. Gave 63 cents per share to the investors, laid off a lot of great people to get there. Is the loyalty to this company worth it when... read more
I heard lay off coming in DH, LCO in a month or two. They are working lay off plan from this week. About 10 people are expected to go.
We have cut so many worker bees over the years yet doubled the content they need to monitor and keep working (despite some of it not being manufacturable without planned rework) but we have just as many managers. Everything seems down to a pissing... read more
As a relatively new professional should I contemplate moving to a different domain say mobile networking AI etc. Is storage a good place for a long career
Does anybody else still working at Seagate trust our current leadership? Believes they can turn us around? If there is somebody who believes this, I'll be mildly put shocked. Hopefully, everybody has seen through them by now, and knows that the only... read more
You have to vacate the the cihntry within 45 days as if new rules or else DHS will send FBI to arrest you. Happened to one-off my friend at Cupertino.
I was laid off from Longmont last year and it took more than 6 months to find a job in what people call a great job market for job seekers. Here is what I learned: Seagate is considered old tech and not a great name on your resume unless looking for... read more
I've been sending out my resumes for the past several months, testing out the water, and what I'm finding is really not good. There don't seem to be that many available jobs - no matter what the economy numbers are saying. And even when I was able to... read more

They escorting at least 2-3 people. What’s happening?
What happened to all the supposed big layoffs? Why didn't they happen? Can't wait for more rumours and lies.
I've noticed people are being fired lately much more often than it was the case before. I know of two guys who were shown the door in the past two weeks - and in both cases the reason given is mildly put ridiculous, something that usually would... read more
April it is
Remember this, people. Severance is not something dictated by law. It's literally on the company to decide if it does or doesn't want to give a package to laid off employees. Don't wait for something that might not be coming just to find yourself in... read more
I overheard a discussion about the Cupertino office closing and moving people to Fremont building. The discussion sounded as it would be a transition and not just an overnight switch. Any truth to this? Anyone know more of these details?
I've survived Seagate for more than 15 years, letter received, only to get a mere 3 months package.. should have move on earlier to others
Now need to force take AL, so retrenchme t soon? Rumours around that pay 2weeks for 1 year
I really wish we were told what's going on - just waiting, guessing and worrying is mentally exhausting. I think I'd handle it better if we new layoffs were tomorrow - at least I'd know it'd be all over after that, one way or another. Having to wait... read more
Why are people talking about layoffs at Seagate in March as if they were a sure thing? All I saw so far were a few rumors here and there, nothing concrete. Did I miss something? An announcement or even a hint from an official source that something is... read more
With more layoffs looming sometime next month, I've become more tempted than ever to just leave on my own. Wait for layoffs, if I'm not on the list, leave anyhow. I'm so tired of having no semblance of job security. I was wondering, those who have... read more
