Topics regarding layoffs at Seagate Technology Inc.

Have all chances been missed?

There were a few chances in the past to branch out but those ships have sailed long ago and Seagate is now a tanker loaded up with debt. The chances I'm speaking of were to merge with a NAND chip maker, and/ or become a mass storage warehouse... —  read more

Where is this company headed?

My opinion is that the Seagate is a small boat in the middle of the ocean. Unfortunately, the company has completely lost its compass. What vision do they have for Seagate in general? Can you imagine this company in two or three years? I am not at... —  read more

Employee morale

Things were already bad when I was laid off about three years ago and with everything that's happened since then (most of all the pandemic) I can't even imagine how bad it is now. Is there any chance that I'm wrong and things have actually improved?... —  read more 


Seagate will never require the vaccine as an employment requirement. If you are wondering why, it's because a company who requires employees to take a vaccine as a condition of work accepts 100% of financial responsibility if you are injured by it... —  read more 

Fighting for survival

The more the ship sinks, the more backstabbing, taking of other people's credit and brown nosing we see here on daily basis. I understand that some people want to keep their jobs here, but is the situation so desperate that they will fight to stay... —  read more 

Company of paradoxes?

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 

Health is priceless...

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 

What many better things?

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 Springtown OFT

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 

Less and less benefit?

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 

Who’s safe? NO ONE!

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 

Last days of generosity?

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
