Good job but way too busy and understaffed

I worked at NetApp full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great environment, lot's of learning potential if you want it. Seriously, you just need to ask. Beer and barfood Friday was a definite plus to network with other departments.

Cons

The big one, TSE's are WAY understaffed. TSE1 are just ticket openers. TSE2 first line of defense and abused. TSE3 and EE is where you want to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would love to come back but you have an unwritten policy of just deleting former employees applications. At an actual competitive pay though.

    I don't really have anything bad to say about the company other than staying more competitively with other companies in our space.

    Software Engineer at NetApp

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1) Stable job
    2) Good quality of life because the work is not very difficult

    Cons

    1) Very low prospects of growth. Expect a promotion in 5+ years, and there are so many layers that if you start as a Software Engineer, you'll become a Senior Engineer in 12+ years (if you're lucky).
    2) Salary and compensation is significantly lower than many other companies in the Bay Area.
    3) Your manager (middle management) is going to be your biggest hurdle to growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Please give engineers more authority and treat them as adults.
    2) Get rid of unnecessary "processes", they don't lead to innovation.
    3) Please help employees grow, move from one department to another after proving themselves, and thrive.
