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

Pros

Friendly, professional, and smart colleagues Good technology Aggressive pursuit of market share Good culture and striving to be Great - Supportive of work-life balance and community involvement/charitable work STrives to be open and highly communicative

Cons

Hero-culture and silo-ed organization Very much a "what have you done for me lately" culture Ivory-tower mentality in Corp No Careerpaths, no career growth Hires new management mostly from outside Weakness throughout management chain Communication falters and breaks down from middle management to the front-line worker

Advice to Management

Better align business direction and goals with compensation policies Link the tactical work to the strategic goals - There seems to be a loosey-goosey approach to this linkage the further down the management chain to the point where there is a lack of communication to the front-line worker and a limited linkage to the direction they are given to the achieving of strategic goals. Think through the strategic and tactical role of professional services and structure business expectations accordingly

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of support for ideas in my group. If I think up something that could be valuable they let me run with it and I am at the bottom. I have shared my ideas with the founder and gotten feedback for no reason but that is the way the company works.

    Cons

    I am fortunate that I really don't have any problems. Maybe the area where my desk is is a bit noisy but if I whined about things like that ....

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees.
