Seagate is a failure, keep all the expensive sites, Open posh R &D Buildings at most expensive cities in Asia ie. Singapore and South Korea, maintained Media plant in world 's 2nd most expensive city Singapore (Woodlands), which is 3X more expensive than Malaysia and THailand, no wonder the operating cost very high compared to WD . The SVP of media operations should be sacked for protecting own interest for maintaining Singapore plant, and operating 3 times more expensive than competitor. The American CEO and COO are dumb idiots, can't even get the basic number right on expensive site location, how to lead the company to greater heights .

From the 2nd largest plant in Malaysia Batu Kawan ( after Proton )as announced by VP to zero plant in Penang, Seagate Boleh !!! Somemore Penang Seagate will announce officially the plant ceased operations timeline. More than 70% of workforce will be gone by this year end.....remaining gone by 2017.

No body will care about you, Heard this plant wont close down since do have one director decide to stay back instead going to Osxxx.

by | Post ID:

Agree!

Nobody likes the feeling is "going to be out of job"😡. But if it is going to happen, just announce so that people can start planning earlier.

Most importantly, give out a better closing down package.

Quoting our beloved SJL,

Just Bring It.

The whole lot of us are ready and waiting for it. Blardy hell.

by | Post ID:

Don't care if this is from Steven or not. Just quickly go update your resume.

Hope that the package is as good as WD. Anyway, It has to be better, WD penang slider plant is the excess capacity while Seagate still requires the Penang Plant to support the Enterprize Products.
