I have been working at NETGEAR full-time

Pros

Hmmm...people have heard of them.

Cons

Insane workload, terrible communication and rude fellow employees. No one seems to really get along and I challenge any current employee to say different.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be respect from the top down. You may feel like you can look down on your subordinates but to talk down and belittle is wrong.

    I worked at NETGEAR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    + I learned a lot
    + Easy Access to VPs & Executive Office

    Cons

    - Work hours were from 7am - 9/10pm, including some holidays and some weekend work. After 18 months I approached my management to ask for some work life balance consideration. They said there was 'no opportunity for reducing the work hours' and in fact our team was to be doing 20-30% more the following year with the same resources. Around the same time I was offered a position with less pay but better work hours. I left NETGEAR - Money can't buy time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep hard working, smart people please consider they have lives outside of work

    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.
