I worked at NetApp full-time (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.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things for me at NetApp were good co-workers and a good work environment (at least at the location I was in.). Overall I found it a good place to work. Generally interesting work, although that varied over time.

    Cons

    Nothing major. At the time I worked there the NetApp release process had become rather conservative, which may not be for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none

    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.
