Former seagater here. Is stx product roadmap competitive with WD? Just read about WD ePMR and it seems like a good transition to mamr and later HAMR compared to stx going right to HAMR? What's the truth on products between the 2 companies?
Topics regarding layoffs at Seagate Technology Inc.
When will the next round happen? No commercial programs, HAMR's dead, SSD's dead, the test equipment is being surplused and the building is being sold. Seems like everyone at SHK, except for a few code nerds, could disappear tomorrow and no one... — read more
Does anyone know the true numbers?
Mostly dothill and IT side. Not confirmed, most likely.
Does anyone know what criteria will be used to select who gets laid off? For example, is it based on tenure, performance, location, skills, productivity, amount of work, salary, if you are a whiner, pain to manage, etc?

Stx is a good place to work. However, working for STX is only a matter of when will you be laid off, not if. Market for its business does not grow. Products pricing pressure increases daily. Thus stx will need to adjust cost accordingly. The only... — read more
What's going on? Should I take no news to mean good news or that everybody is too busy with layoffs to say anything?
My manager told me of the leadership all hands meeting today by Nygaard. It seems he is getting ready to take on the CEO job.
Does this job even help Seagate or weigh it down? What are some examples of how business excellence makes you get better or makes Seagate worse? I don't like how they're in charge of all the layoffs, that should be manager discretion.
No layoffs in IT. Looks like IT got a pass and has reached steady state...finally.

Anytime before September huge layoffs. LCO is done.
15% Cut possible.
There is no doubt lay offs will be around the corner, wondering how deep it is going to be. What about LCO? What about Dothill? Only managers please.
I know at some point huge lay offs will happen, but I believe it is not imminent until September. I am in dothill, we may lose 50% of our colleagues.
