    Netgear has no idea what it means to invest in its staff.

    I have been working at NETGEAR full-time (more than 8 years)


    Decent office location, benefits were average.


    Building A/C flatout didn't work properly leaving one side approximately 20 degrees warmer than the other.
    No opportunity for promotion within the company.
    No matter what was accomplished over a year, the employee review process would still make you fight to justify simply continuing to work there.
    Middle management positions were constantly shifting sometimes causing your chain of command to change 4 times a year(yes, every quarter).
    Equipment budgets for engineering departments beyond retail routers were minimal.
    The general culture of the office including company sponsored events could be best described as something that requires constant tip-toeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Netgear desperately needs new leadership from the top down, that includes Patrick Lo the CEO. Not because he specifically causes any problems, but he's massively out of touch with the company. Even regular employees see reports showing problems in departments that have been ongoing for years that suddenly surprise Patrick. Spending money to build a patio in the parking lot instead of things like getting A/C problems worked out and departments running on skeleton crews with shoestring budgets was the norm.

    For 4 years my department was short-handed by at least 40%. Working overtime is one thing, but constantly being overworked is just a massive drain. Speaking to people in other departments, they replied with similar concerns if you weren't in finance or HR.
