    Pros

    Great people
    Company is growing so change is frequent

    Cons

    I don't know about the rest of the company, but IT is a terrible place to work. The business decisions made by senior management are unbelievably poor. Its clear the organization is very poorly run from the VP level to first level manager. Culture is one of rule by authority.
    There is too much ridiculous process and no real feeling of teamwork across organizations.
    You struggle to get things done because resources are so taxed. No common goals across the organization and there are way too many re-orgs. Like I said, other parts of the company might be good, but IT is definitely nowhere near top 5.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in all new management at every level. Words are cheap. If you say you value people, show it.
    Do not allow politics to influence business decisions. Push back on PMO. Allow people to do their job without trying to define every single role. Very very few employees are happy in IT, they're just waiting for the economy to pick up so they can leave. IT is gaining a very bad reputation both inside and outside the company.

    A great place to work, though frequently under pressure to deliver quality for customers.

    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    Good benefits, positive environment, great upper management communication. The corporate culture encourages participation and the communications of successes and things necessary for success are clearly outlined.

    Cons

    Management tends to be "home grown" and not trained. This leads to ambiguity of method, goals and a lack of clarity of where to go when there are problems. Line employees are encouraged and developed. Managers are left on their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should encourage and build up managers more as they do with their line employees. In other areas, they should continue to keep doing what they do.
