Pros

NetApp has a large technical writing department and strives to make its documentation user friendly. The writers use DITA to publish online manuals. The writers use the NetApp wiki to publish plans, procedures, schedules, and other project-related information.

Cons

It is sometimes hard to talk with the engineers.

    Pros

    The NetApp culture has brought some A players to the scene.

    Cons

    Middle managers are too technical and less capable of managing people. We keep losing these same great people to the competitors because of this lack of good management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move technical people into technical leadership roles and get them out of leading divisions of people. Those leaders need to achieve excellence in building teams.
