    Former Employee - Senior Manager  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

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

    Pros

    It was a great place to work and not sure of it anymore. Before some management came from another company the politics was less and opportunities were good.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism and politics and whom you know to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of nepotism that still exists and one too many "close friends"/relatives being hired and promoted by current management at Director/Sr. Director level and those who do real work being let go and/or pushed out to make room for this to happen!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Founder still with the company and strives to ensure the values are met
    A number of employee perks that help throughout the year. The medical is less expensive than other companies.
    Generally good, highly technical people who care about making a solid product.

    Cons

    Management that cares more about meeting metric numbers in order to ship than the state of the engineers.
    Slow release cycle with a highly complex OS (ONTAP)
    To see the "Great Place to Work" is dependent on joining a team who's manager actually believes that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in R&D, add more engineers to ONTAP instead of holding back on the hiring. Ensure that all teams are following the company's values, including having a healthy work-life balance.
