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.

    Current Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Sunnyvale, CA

    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......

    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Well respected in the industry. Solid salary packages with competitive benefits

    Cons

    With growth comes challenges in recruiting and developing solid middle management through Director level staff. To often managing up became the goal for success while mentoring, nurturing, and training staff was overlooked.
