Cupertino IT

Will there be any layoffs in Cupertino IT in the future? I heard that the folks remaining there are some of the most talented, brightest, and hard working people.

Layoffs at SHK or NRM

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 be Jenga, Dun Up on Steroids!

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

Oklahoma City CSO

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

Ken’s Advice

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

Boy, is this Spot On

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.

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 stable and fine... read more

1. Hiring a new CEO

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

Shakopee: Layoffs Continue

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

Lower management is as bad

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.

More Engg Layoffs

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

Like Watching Rome Fall

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

It's all about the Divie

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

Is it true?

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.

Happy Holidays

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.

600 worldwide RIF incoming

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!

DInner & Dance @ MBS Singapore

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 ..........

Whereabouts of $0.7B from WD

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?
