I have been working at NETGEAR full-time for more than a year

Pros

Netgear is a unique place where you can develop your career in a dynamic fashion that fits with your individual interests. Lots of opportunity to work across department lines and take on new roles/responsibilities. Definitely a place where you can learn a lot.

Any employee can have a large impact on the organization, despite it being a global company. This makes for a satisfying work experience.

Salaries are competitive or better than average. Performance is rewarded.

Cons

Employees need to be able to manage themselves (not for everyone).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management is pretty solid. The organization is "flat", so upper management tends to be very visible. I've found them to be very approachable. I'd encourage them to maintain this as the company grows.

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

    I worked at NETGEAR full-time for 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!
