    I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, great leadership & management. The culture makes you want to work hard to not let anyone else down. NetApp truly empowers us to do our job and really cares about the customer and their experience.

    Cons

    Sadly, the company is growing so fast, it is slowly losing it's culture and edge and becoming more like a "normal" company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do whatever it takes to keep the original NetApp culture. Happy employees work harder!

    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer III in Morrisville, NC
    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer III in Morrisville, NC

    I worked at NetApp as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The companies open culture makes it a great place to work.
    Free beer on Fridays makes it easy to social network throughout the company.
    Working on the Engineering and Development side has a stable and steady career path, once here you do not want to transition to a customer facing role.
    Working on the Customer Support Engineering side has a very high risk, high exposure.

    Cons

    Working on the customer facing support side:
    Do not show interest in moving internal positions for product knowledge expansion of any kind..
    The lack of corporate structure and customer management makes it an extremely high risk career.
    The company's competitive drive to compete with EMC is put on the employees, as a result is an unmanageable workload.
    There are no workflow management tools, you are the workflow, you are the ticketing system.
    Survival rate of Technical Support Engineering positions are low. Managements life expectancy is 1-2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the revolving door- get a human routed queue, functioning CRM, ticketing system with e-mail and revise workflow management to accommodate the increased volume in customers.
