    I have been working at NetApp full-time

    Pros

    good compensation to start
    very good benefits
    flexible hours and some telecommuting
    volunteer time off to allow for community service
    a good place to go to if you are close to retirement

    Cons

    technologies and process used in development are out-dated
    rarely promote from within, rather hire from competitors who bring in their buddies
    elaborate performance review system that rewards only a few (why bother?)
    biggest growth is off-shore

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the "great place to work" exaggeration and start caring about employee career development

    Pros

    Easy products to sell.
    They have a good reputation.

    Cons

    Poor lower level managers
    They are very proud of their high ratings in "best places to work" reviews. But they are average at best. Many of us wonder how they rank so highly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First level managers don't understand how to properly get full value from employees.
