    Former Employee - Program Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at NETGEAR full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic fast paced, high energy, results oriented company.
    compensation package very good
    Great place to gain experience
    lean organization where low performers get weeded out quickly
    most teams work very well together, strong bonds within some of the functions.

    Cons

    It's a tough business, with low margins so company runs very lean
    They thrive on being thrifty, and this mentally gets old after a while.
    work life balance is out of whack for most; not in all groups.
    biggest problem is "it's never enough.: Regardless if you produce 100% of what you were asked, the attitude is but where's the 110%?
    This style doesn't motivate because you can't win.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having high expectations of teams is great, but you need to acknowledge the teams success

    I have been working at NETGEAR full-time

    Pros

    Salary is good. Most people say hello. Most people are reasonable with of course a few exceptions that have tantrums.

    Cons

    Amount of work hours (and weekends). Favoritism. Appreciation not acknowledged well. Management continues to go about its same path with little regard to employee voices opinions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Losing people not by natural attrition but discontentment.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
