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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Keep up the good work!

    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 Management

    Keep on communicating - the more the better
