Growing company with growing pains but where you can grow too

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NETGEAR full-time

ProsSmall company feel in an established, financially secure small company growing to mid-cap
Good team spirit
Good benefits package
Lots of opportunity to stand out, and make a difference
Few tiers of hierarchy (5 or 6 roles top to bottom in most parts of the company)
Positive culture and values
Great place to learn about the industry, as you have to wear many hats
The people

ConsHigh workload (ok, so where isnt these days)
Some bureaucracy starting to creep in as it scales
Commission structure not what it used to be so motivation in sales is low
Lack of budget for fun team events or meetings outside of HQ (Sure, its nice to be profitable, but its also nice to have dinner with your team mates occasionally)

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to get the sales force fired up again if you want to see growth. Walking around the sales office, everyone seems to accept its not the place to work for sales if you want to earn. Many top performers have left and a lot of the remainder are looking. The highest paid people in any sucessful company should be the sales team, let some actually do it and make a positive example of them

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
