Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in New York, NY
Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in New York, NY

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Fair pay with plenty of perks

    I think they spread themselves a little too thin and had to close the Utah Office.

    Some of upper management don't realize the impact of the Utah employees.
