"Although there can be evening or early morning calls, you get to work internationally. Work/life balance (or, 'integration') is accommodated. People get that you have family or community obligations. It's like any other tech company in terms of gender. The Seagate Women's Leadership Network has speakers and executive panels. The CEO and other top leaders present when they are in tow. Very cool."

"Seagate is a great place to work, for women and everyone. I am privileged to have an amazing manager who is passionate about our development. The data storage industry is really interesting, which makes it motivating to learn every day. What I like about Seagate in regards to women is that we are transparent about our numbers, and hold ourselves accountable to getting equitable representation in the workplace. Seagate is much like most high tech companies in that we have lower representation of women in roles like engineering and management, but I've never felt that I've been treated differently as a female employee and I believe the company is actively working to address the gap."

"The culture is very good overall: own your professional development, and do not be afraid to raise your hand for work you are passionate about."
"There are ways to get involved and meet others, but you do have to put in some effort to get involved such as attending events, reaching out to the networking groups, or striking up a conversation with someone in passing. "
"There are opportunities here to get involved, but you have to take initiative. You can join the Women's Leadership Network and other groups to gain community and get active beyond your day-to-day. This has helped meet others and made collaboration easier."
"I am new to the organization and am really impressed with the culture and teamwork here. People are friendly and professional. I hope to have opportunities to learn and grow my career here. "
"Seagate is one of the best companies I have worked for. Their values of Integrity, Innovation, and Inclusion, are fundamental to the company culture. The company has invested heavily in unconscious bias mitigation training which is furthering the Inclusion value by ensuring that everyone's voice is heard. I have always been treated with respect and fairness and have been offered many opportunities to be involved in new and challenging projects. We have an active Women's Leadership Network that is made up of intelligent, professional women who support one another and host incredible events that all employees benefit from. I would highly recommend Seagate to women! "

"Seagate is making great strides towards improving it's culture of diversity and inclusion. The Women's Leadership Network is a great opportunity to learn and connect with other employees at the site. After working at other companies, I've found Seagate to be the most supportive environment and am thankful for the opportunity. "

"Management still mostly men, but improving and having more women join the ranks."
"A lot of flexibility and work life balance is dependent on your direct manager. Pick your manager wisely"
"Company is recognizing the ratio difference between male and female leadership roles, which I believe is a good sign. There are lots of opportunities if you come in with an open mind and put in efforts to network. The FLEX Time is great for employees to manage our time better."

"Get involved whether it's in the Women's Leadership Network or the Mentoring Program etc, look outside your department and Network with others."
"In a technical role you will likely be a minority though how dramatically depends on the area. You will probably experience mostly fair treatment but you will also probably experience quite a bit of cognitive bias. I have had a handful of more specifically negative experiences with some sexist element but I would say it's not the norm and none are that recent."
"Accept employment with the understanding that men far outnumber women, and the old boys' club still exists."
"Overall I think its a great company to work for, but there are limited women in leadership positions related to research and operations. The company also has a long way to go in creating a true diversity and inclusion program. "

"Despite flexible time off, an old school culture of bias is pervasive. Micro-aggressions occur daily if not hourly. Not many women work here, period. "

"At its core, Seagate is an engineering company and because engineering is so male dominated, a culture exists which marginalizes women. "
"Seagate is a great company, but it is a very male-dominated industry (in terms of engineering, research and development), in other areas there are more women and the diversity is beneficial."
"Be prepared to have a loud voice, often I can be the only woman in a room full of males. "
"Maternity benefits have improved, but still aren't the greatest compared to other companies within industry. There is a huge lack of diversity in leadership. "
"Generally a great place to work. Still a male-dominated culture. Definitely need better maternity benefits."
"Many networking opportunities and groups available. Support of the team is amazing."

"It is a good place to have a career at. It has taken me from single life, to parent with small kids, to empty nester and has provided me the flexibility to have good work life balance. "

"I am currently very happy with my immediate leadership / executive team and am working on a key initiative that could really improve customers' experience with the company. The culture does tend to be a bit of the old school approach and very hierarchical....some groups more so than others. "

"Leadership is mostly white males. Some departments or organizations allow flexible work schedule and some do not. It's not equitable across the company. "

"stand up for yourself! don't let time pass before you mention, to the person who caused the problem, that you don't care for that kind of interaction (the kind that leaves someone feeling less-than)."

"Since this is a tech company they are trying really hard to bring more women into the company. I'm still nursing (babe is <1) and the lactation room has a pretty tight schedule so I end up pumping in a conference room but that works great for me. There is a Women's Leadership Network and even though the company is majority male, it is still inviting."

"Very dependent on which boss you have, but overall company policies are in line with other major companies"
"There are very few women in senior positions. The company is careful to be legally and politically correct, but the numbers tell the story--nearly all senior positions and those just below them are held by men."
"I've worked here for over 3 years and it seems to have gone backwards from when I started. Finances are micro-managed from the top. The morale is bad among both genders of employees. Support roles are predominately women and overworked. The mid-level positions held by women are stifled by upper management, who are predominately men."
"It is a male dominated"
"Our company was acquired by Seagate in the last couple of years. Seagate has many more women in professional roles than the acquired company, but it has not translated into more opportunities. Acquired companies still are not fully assimilated and are run exclusively by men."
