I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

One of the best culture's around. Great products, great people.
The people at NetApp (including myself) have a passion for the product. When I was selling NetApp, I knew that if the customer bought my solution, they were making the right decision and would be happy with their purchase

Cons

Recently, the forward momentum and innovation has slowed down, causing some backsliding in the market. It's taken way too long to bring new products to market, and what has come out has suffered in QA and manufacturing.

There needs to be a renewed focus on innovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to the field. Also, there are a lot of divisions at NetApp, and it seems that much of what is being done isn't being communicated well; there's a feeling that the left hand doesn't always know what the right hand is doing.

    Pros

    Releases are getting methodical and better organized. Planning process is more systematic. Development tools seem to be improving over time, including virtual hardware. Getting over a major product transition (7-mode to C-mode) and when that's done, outlook looks good.

    Cons

    Releases are still large and cumbersome. It takes a long time for features to get out the door. Many, many ideas don't fit current releases.
