    Pros

    Great culture, great people to work with. Definitely an enjoyable atmosphere to spend your time working and building a fulfilling career

    Cons

    Execution and management can be a bit localized. If you are outside of a major corporate office (SVL, RTP) visibility is extremely difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I always enjoyed the positive and candid nature of the business, though sometimes that can pull the wool over the eyes of some from within. In those circumstances being more open and honest in addition to being candid would be of great value.

    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.
