I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good pay, employee appreciation, a good place to work, meaningful work.

Cons

An expanding middle layer of management that is more concerned with politics then producing a great product. NetApp is losing their lead, their innovation, the engine that drove their success is almost out, yet they haven't been able to turn the corner and be an efficient management company like EMC. They are ruthless, like EMC; but, without the effectiveness of EMC.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become a ruthless and effective shark like EMC, or an innovative company like the old NetApp. Standing in the middle of the road will get you run over.

    Pros

    Great team members and an exciting place to work. Pay is great and the benefits are equally good. You are given the opportunity to do you best and showcase your talent.

    Cons

    Very aggressive management style. Constant change in leadership. Not so great work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the leadership churn and recognize the need for work-life balance with employees.

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

    Pros

    Some co-workers are nice.
    Besides that, I cannot find any pros.

    Cons

    -package is not competitive
    - not diversity
    - very political,especially in the WAFL and Data Protection Group, managers don't care the product and their people, they only care how to look better in his/her boss's eyes and how to move up
    - most of the managers are not fair, those who have good personal relationship with the managers no need to work and get promoted easily
    - culture favors the person who can talk well, not the person who can work well but not good at talk

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove those incompetent managers, otherwise, the person who can work well will leave, and those who only can talk well will stay. NetApp will become next Sun or Motorola......
