    Former Employee - Intern - Hourly in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at NetApp as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very laid back company culture. Plenty of opportunities for interns to shine. Supportive environment. The work-life balance as I saw among the full time employees(I was an intern) is excellent. Right company for those of you who just want to settle down and do your job without much fuss or excitement.

    Cons

    You have to take initiative on your own to ask for work to do. It is not a very competitive culture.
