    Pros

    Great place to work for sure! NetApp treats it's interns VERY well. I was there summer of 2012 and there were many benefits. Examples: Weekly 1 hour speaker events where interns hear the company's executives tell us about their life and give us advice (with catered free lunch!), a full day of fun doing a team building activity in SF, a BBQ mid summer, volunteering at Family Fun Day, Health Fair, ice cream socials, and charitable causes like helping to raise money for Second Food Bank by serving lunch with executives and creating emergency relief bags for the Red cross, and plus we got to participate in company wide beer bashes. Oh yeah, and the main cafe is excellent with plenty of international foods and a gym in the next building over if you need it :). Overall, I had a really good experience and would recommend.

    Cons

    Did not offer an internship extension and had almost no new grad positions that fit my skill set

    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 Management

    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.
