    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    Nice work atmosphere, employees and managers are really cool. You might end up having to be a workaholic depending on the team.

    Cons

    Not sure how the company's long term path might fit your careers goals, especially if you are starting as an NCG at NetApp. They do not have too many new projects, so you will end up fixing a lot of Bugs along with a few features. Most of the code has already been developed.

    Pros

    You will succeed if you want to, plenty of career growth and opportunity. Work/Life balance works really well for me. Great work environment and facilities

    Cons

    Some in position are there because of the quick growth, not because of they are deserving.
    To much meeting and not enough doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, if you are not going to listen don't ask the questions and push everyone to answer.

    Work life balance is great as you can be flexible with work hours.

    Doesn't have the same growth and success as it had a few years ago. Slowing down is affecting bonus and comp raises.
