The overall culture at NetApp is one that trusts their employees to manage their own time and get their work done. It is a an output/outcome oriented organization, rather than a strict 9-5. This allows employees, even during the busiest seasons, to maintain work/life balance.
The benefits are great!
The employee base at NetApp is great - a lot of smart, hard working, and genuinely nice people work here.
NetApp is in a transformative state, trying to mature from a start-up like operation to an enterprise class organization - a little too late. Groups still work heavily in silos, which causes redundancy and even contradictions in end to end processes which leads to a lot of 'busy work' as a result. Although everyone is nice, groups do not work together (a lot of tunnel thinking, rather than seeing the up/downstream impacts of their groups' decisions).
The employee base is full of great people, but it's clear that the executive management ranks play heavy political games which trickle heavily into your every day job.
The culture at NetApp is so consensus based at times that decisions are never made, or employees are required to jump through multiple hoops (getting buy in from 5-10 committees) before getting approval. This habit leads to less agility and again, more busy work.
This company loves to invest a LOT of money into outside consulting firms for cultural initiatives.
Advice to Management
When trying to cut expenses, put a pause on some of the major initiatives that are costing millions of dollars (paid to third parties), and reinvest that money into your employees and innovation.
Please stop the politics and just make the tough decisions that leaders should make for the organization.
