Did you lie on your micro-survey? Vote up for yes.

Did you mark your micro-survey all positive just so you wouldn't have to listen and put up with the angst, discomfort, and worry about your boss fretting over the results and trying to find out who posted a negative response?

Top storage companies of 2018

We are number 4! With the worst year over year growth of the top companies listed except for IBM. Surprised? https://www.storagenewsletter.com/2019/01/31/top-storage-companies-in-2018/

Clueless engineering staff

Many replacements were hired but with only new grads. Now you have a double whammy of clueless engineering staff who need hand holding from the Sr staff. That only drags down productivity more. I agree with the cutting back on tools. In their... read more

Lost faith in management

There has been no communication to deal with all of the talk of the big RIFs coming up with the major downtrend that occurred last quarter and at least the next few quarters, and all the good people that are suddenly targeted and laid off. The people... read more

Seagate sales declining

Why Costco is selling seagate storage drives 1/3 of the price? New product coming or lay off coming? I saw some orders for pink color paper sheets last month. Still I did not see card board boxes. Not looking good though especially for LCO location.

Analyst Day

Seriously, when is that Analyst day? When does the cast of over aged, under experienced white male executives articulate the non existent strategy of how customers are stupid and investors don't get it. Oh, and don't forget the continued perjury on... read more

WD sounds in worse shape

"TrendFocus said Seagate was the quarter champion, pumping out 36.75 million drives, down 8 per cent annually. The research house said rival Western Digital had shipped 30.5 million, down 28 per cent on the year and an 11 per cent quarterly decline... read more

We are looking at a bloodbath

Dividend cut as revenue takes a "pause"? If they can't hold the dividend and still be cash positive, and/or severe guidance cut then it'll be a bloodbath. This hits the nail on the head. Judging by everything said so far, the only way for Seagate to... read more

The Privileged at Seagate

How many execs jammed the Seagate Luxury box at Levi Stadium last night. Im sure the upcoming Rif weighed heavy on all of them.

Dark future for 2.5 HDD

Western Digital shipped 21.2 million notebook drives in 2FQ15, a figure declining regularly to reach only 9.6 million in 4FQ18. For the same periods, enterprise devices were down from 8.0 million to 6.6 million and global units sold diminish from 61... read more

Wrong priorities

The reality is that most VPs at Seagate do not drive the priorities necessary for the success of the company, instead the focus is on the shiny object of the moment while the storage industry moves forward. Billions of dollars in wasted money on the... read more

Choose Your Boss, Not Your Job

Quite possibly the best advice I’ve ever heard about selecting your next career is to pick your boss, not the job. This is challenging because the process we use to find meaningful work is designed to work the opposite way; the boss picks you. More... read more

Seagate future

Demand for the products declining rapidly on slowing economic growth. Half of the employees should be laid off to survive. That means 50% lay off. Dothill should be eliminated. I believe it will be March.

Strategy?

There is NO such thing as IT 4.0 Stock is trading below when new CEO was announced over a year ago Success is not chasing WDC to the bottom of valuation And folks are surprised that layoffs will continue on this terminal asset. Go figure.
