I have been working at NETGEAR

Pros

Medical benefits have a minimal cost to employee
Good Location
Nice co-workers for the most part

Cons

No 401K match
Salary is very Low and raises are close to inexistent
Growth opportunity is rare or if there it comes with a work load of 4 people as opposed to 3 people before promotion.
Management is new and lack people skills and use power to benefit themselves
Personal interests are accepted and encouraged although it is NOT professional
Retaliation is encouraged, but well covered by senior management and HR
Management have too much power and HR is not a help
HR is weak and is not employee oriented
Senior management does not interfere or help new managers
Executives mentality is old fashion and lacks trust in their hires

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should review their managers more often and closely. Moral in company is low due to lack of experienced management and their decisions. I would NOT recommend this company unless you are desperate for a job. Your learning opportunity is minimal, so not even that is worth while.

    My experience has been great - the executive team has been very supportive and other employees work well together.

    Pros

    Management is supportive of new initiatives
    Company is growing quickly - creating lots of opportunity for career growth

    Good team that works well together and is very supportive across different functions
    Good balance of work/life
    It seems like some of the reviews here on the site were written before some major restructuring that occurred earlier this year. Some of those problems have been fixed since - including removing some of the problem managers.

    Cons

    Communications between Business Units needs improvement.
    Rank and File employees can be resistive to change, especially if it impacts them directly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on building the business in new areas.
    Continue to focus on improving employee relations and building a supportive environment for employees.
