Still feels like a small company in a lot of (important) ways

I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

NetApp likes to hire smart people who are passionate about what they do. There are high expectations for performance and even higher expectations about collaboration. It takes a while to get decisions made (both big and small), but once they are made they are executed with extreme efficiency. The company is nimble and can still operate like a small company in a lot of ways. The emphasis on company culture is truly remarkable and lived by virtually all of the top level executives. There is a lot less corporate ego here than in other places. The top execs stand in line in the cafeteria like everyone else.

Cons

Having a lot of passionate people makes conflict unavoidable and decision making slow. For the most part however, people are very respectful of conflicting opinions, come up with workable strategies and move forward together. Short term decisions and investments and little process becomes quite problematic as the company grows.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to value the front-line workers, demonstrate humility and respect and the rest of the company will follow suit.

    I worked at NetApp as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    -Not too high stress
    -Can pick your own project
    -Offered relocation expenses
    -Met a bunch of fascinating people and learned exactly how big tech companies work
    -Had an awesome manager and worked on a great team

    Cons

    Make sure you pick your team carefully. Also since you are given your own freedom in a lot of areas, you have to keep yourself motivated to make sure you don't run into a ton of work and other troubles at the end of your internship. Pay might be a little less than other places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Had a great time, and your recruiters do a great job in keeping interns happy. Keep publicizing company culture and more students will take interest in NetApp opportunities.
