Former Employee - Project Engineer in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Project Engineer in San Jose, CA

I worked at NETGEAR full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefit, different product line, good place to lean about network products, free drink, good food during the company events.

Cons

Old fashion management style, no product innovation, limited communication within groups, not a fun place to work. Stock option is worthless, they need to change it to vesting stock.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create better working environment for employees, provide training for managers to be a better people manager.

    Former Employee - Senior Engineering Product Manager in San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Engineering Product Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at NETGEAR full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management
    Great Leadership
    Compensation
    Team / culture / people
    Ownership of products/projects
    Exposure and opportunity for advancement
    Good work / life balance

    Cons

    If I had to say one, it would be some employees take a while to adapt to an environment where you take ownership of an entire product or project and they are used to compartmentalized structure, only work in a specific area over and over again. At Netgear, you will find you exposure broadened and if your not ready for that, it could be too much. However, the management and leadership is prepared to equip the team for success and the supporting cast is designed to ensure success, support and stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Current Employee - Vice President in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Vice President in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at NETGEAR full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    NETGEAR has very little bureaucracy and gives me ownership for my job and my function. No micromanagement and very good, clear direction and communication from the CEO. They promote from within and have a good bonus plan. I have been able to promote several people and reward great performers. I feel very appreciated.

    Cons

    They run lean, so if you are not the type that wants to work hard, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on communicating - the more the better
