People wanted to work at Seagate. Working here meant good pay and good benefits with a chance to progress. All of that has changed, so hiring anybody with any other options is impossible today. The only ones who are applying are people fresh out of... — read more
I thought it was all just a lot of talk, but there seem to be a lot of those leaving before December. I thought that there aren't many options for those who do not want to take a jab. Judging by the number of colleagues who are leaving just for this... — read more
A US employee wide vaccine mandate was announced today. Final deadline is early december. No testing alternative and it applies to remote workers as well as those onsite. No jab no job. FYI to anyone who cares, either side. Specific company info... — read more
I'm not sure why nothing is being done about attrition. We are losing some (more like most) of our best to our competitors and nobody is doing anything to reverse this trend. This can keep happening only for so long before the effects are felt in the... — read more
When I tried to give my best, I was overwhelmed with work and daily on the verge of burnout. Suddenly everything is better ever since I stopped being one of those who try to know as much as possible. If you don't want to be overwhelmed with work... — read more
Will it stick?
I started working here when this company still had quite a bit of relevance. I know some great people who wanted to get a job here at the time and failed. What happened in the meantime is still not clear to me but now no one with high potential wants... — read more
Looking at the latest trendfocus data summary and WD has caught STX. STX had a solid 5 to 8 point share lead. What is happening in the market?
I hear from my data center friends that as HDD gets bigger the IOPS get lower and are unusable for cloud providers. Even with dual actuator it only gets HDD to 2025. Is this true?
Has anyone heard of any new rumors about cuts? I may be wrong, but to me it seems like calm before the storm.
I saw this video and it reminded me of the many BS jobs around STX, including mine. The perfect example that is mentioned often is the Business Excellence department and its multiple VPs and Directors. How do we trade engineering, that can... — read more
Getting rid of seasoned, loyal employees like they're trash is what did it for me. The moment I find a new job, I'm gone.
Is HAMR ever going to happen ? Are the guys in SRG ever going to own up to their uselessness ?
Everyone is looking forward for the severance package (SP) and this is the main mentality across from boss, peers and colleagues working in Seagate. No one talks about work just focused on money. Of course, money always win!!!! If no SP, carry on... — read more
I don't respect the company which puts profit above all, I don't respect the leadership team which is leading this place into ruin, I don't respect any of the managers - whatever level we're talking about - for being nothing but but-kissers who have... — read more
Never in a short period of time did more of my colleagues leave Seagate. I’m not at all surprised because people don’t leave bad jobs, they leave bad bosses and poor management who don’t appreciate their value. Unless something changes in the... — read more
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
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
That’s the biggest mistake I’ve ever made. At one time I turned down quite a solid offer because I was thinking about severance pay. Lesson learned.
I keep hearing that people over a certain age (some say 50, some say even in their late 40s) are having trouble finding new jobs due to their age. Is this true? It makes no sense to me. Experience and knowledge always used to mean something, has that... — read more
Has anyone, as a result of the W2 give away, had their SSN # used to set up a fraudulent Medicare and/or Social Security Benefits account?
Those at the top are just lining up extremely bad moves. I wonder which even worse move comes after grade level changes? Admittedly, I hope I won’t even be there when the new bad move is announced. Unfortunately, it has become impossible to expect... — read more
so I'm leaving this company. Nothing makes sense here if you’re not among the favorite ones. They have a better status even if they do sloppy work, even if their behavior towards other employees is not appropriate, even if they do not give any value... — read more
Anyone heard about retrenchment coming on September?
I love my job and I think I am a very engaged employee, but working in this company I've totally lost the will to ever come up with an idea again. They just pretend to want to hear employee ideas, and when you come up with an idea, they completely... — read more
Does it improve your career in Seagate or the grass is not greener on the other side ?
A Company Full of Yes Men Lacks Innovation A Company Full of Yes Men Misses Opportunities A Company Full of Yes Men Isn’t Honest A Company of Yes Men Makes More Mistakes A Company Full of Yes Men Is Afraid of Risk Copied from... — read more
With little to know wage increases from Seagate, your inflation adjusted salary is going to plummet. Other companies are giving large % raises because they are not lead by mo--ns with no clue on what's going on in the world.
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
All Directors and above will receive no raises or bonuses. Directors and above will only be receiving RSUs this year. Sad to see the company increase forecasts and have record stock price but can't pay employees a bonus. Another quick way to push out... — 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
The situation is identical when I worked very hard and now that I work only the bare minimum. Now I wonder why I worked hard at all and tried to give my best? Seagate didn't value it at all. Now that I’m less engaged at least I'm feeling less... — read more
What does HR do to confront a hostile work environment? My opinion is that it does very little or nothing at all. I realized that it is absolutely useless to address them with complaints because they just don’t care. I did it once and they didn’t... — read more
I heard 30 and know of 2.
Is Seagate discouraging expense claims from those who have had to telework during the pandemic?? SVP sanctioned the right to claim, so why are some departments allowing their people to claim whilst others aren’t?
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
Seagate is as white as they come, who are we kidding? Diversity here is like finding break through technically with HAMR, there is none. How much did this statement cost? https://www.ceoaction.com/ceos/?page=24
Lately, whomever of my colleagues I’m talking to, everyone’s looking for another job. That surprised me a little, to be honest, based on my own experience here. You always have to be ready, but I'm still very comfortable here and I don't think the... — read more
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
