If everyone would just contribute 110%, we could layoff 10% of the work force and get a larger focal and bigger bonus. C'mon guys. Jeez.

Has anyone head reliable info about layoffs in Minnesota? Are the Minnesota sites the only Seagate sites that will still be here in 2029?

Seagate = Jenga Seagate and Jenga are amazingly similar. The game at Seagate is played by removing an increasing number of worker bees at the bottom, with the blind belief that those managers at the top (who don't do work but do manage) will be... read more

Someone on this board said before today is layoff day, did it come true?
To protect their bonuses the leadership in OKC, specifically Shenedra and Kelley, have ordered 10 hour workdays. The staff was told to make other arrangements for personal life events and childcare or quit. No exceptions. Only 4 days notice. Staff... read more

I received advice from this guy named Ken; when I asked him about the layoffs. He said, "you got to know when to hold them and when to fold them." We talked about career changes and he said, "you got to know when to walk away and when to run." That... read more
https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Employee-Review-Seagate-Technology-RVW18522428.htm Get out before you're cut out. It's way harder to get a job when you're unemployed, even if you're only employed by Seagate.

GoPro founder and CEO Nick Woodman can't be ousted, since he's the top shareholder and still owns about a third of the company's shares. But under Woodman's leadership, GoPro leapt into new markets -- like media content, VR, and drones -- without... read more

SHK had another round of layoffs this week, primarily focused on engineering and some significant upper management. This was a smaller layoff, similar to the Christmas Layoff - about 15 people. There is no end in sight to the trickle of random... read more
In my division, all management is bad. Ask employees work hard and be innovative. They will try to hire their friends and let go the people speaking the loudest.
This is not a rumor, more engineering layoffs are happening (on top of Dec announcement) in US and India...not on a large scale but the fact that all of them are happening in R&D engg teams (who are supposed to develop future products for Seagate)... read more
One only has to read a sad review like this one to crystallize your purpose: https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Employee-Review-Seagate-Technology-RVW18522428.htm After reading this, there are three options: 1) Do nothing different. Watch all your... read more
Things look good. layoff may not be needed in the short term. good luck, all. back to work now, everyone.
Can only mean one thing: The same upward trend we are seeing in the business market is impacting Seagate in a postive way. Got a kid on the way and now me and the wifey are thinking of looking for a house in the suburbs. I'm so happy that I want to... read more
It formula is simple. Generated Revenue - costs / shares. When this is projected to get anywhere close to the $0.63, assume more cuts. The management made a calculated (and a bit criminal IMO) decision to go to a 63 cent dividend a few years ago when... read more
3000 Rif comming by end of 2018! No joke!
Lay off in LCO will be around 150.
I am hearing that there are no longer any VP's in the OKC location. That they are trying to close 101/102 and out source IT and technical support? Mostly hear about IT at this point but nothing about the tech support side of things.
Let’s continue the subject after the new year. Remember HDD is like stamp, it’s glorious days have passed and it won’t extinct like pony express or floppy drives. I would say DVD and blue ray, but I think they will go away in 10 years.
Likely done by the end of the holidays. From Nygaard's mouth.. NRM is not finished (after being questioned if only IT was getting the axe) Good luck everyone!

I heard about this mentioned by a few Seagaters.... they may have reliable sources
Who said we going downhill. We still got many funds to date. Even hold two Dinner & Dance @ MBS Singapore, one of the most prestigious hotels. We going strong even in the next decade to go ..........
The next wave of layoffs is in March 2018... Another wave is in June right after the US Data Center move from OKC to Shugart is finalized
Reading these posts about Seagate 'saving' $65M by more layoffs reminded me of another cash windfall. Anyone knows if Seagate ever recieved 0.7$B or so from an old lawsuit against WD and S. Mao?
