"It was a good experience working with various OEM's."
"Great place to work with my direct managers, however that place no longer exists."
What do you like about working at Xyratex?
"We were paid to get a job done, my direct managers understood this and didn't watch when we came in or when we left. They knew if they needed something done it would get done. Because of this many of us worked weekends to meet deadlines. Me personally have put in 18 hour days, as well as working 18 days straight even through holidays. But thats because the managers took care of me. It was a privlage to work for those managers, which are no longer there, therefore I am not as well."
What don't you like about working at Xyratex?
"I don't like that they closed down the facility I worked at. It was fun while it lasted."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"My direct management, nothing, they were great, above them, they need to goto management school, and plan ahead better. Not to mention listing to the managers that reported to them"
