Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting "yes" people and promote managers who act with good character and integrity.
Allow employees to carry over PTO or pay them out.

    Unclear and ever-changing strategy & vision. Communication is not good.

    Current Employee - Pre-Sales SE in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent salaries. Some good and very bright people are still remaining. Good benefits.

    Cons

    The culture has changed completely. Morale is the lowest I have seen it. Lots of rumors circulating. Hoping that things become clearer after the new fiscal year starts. If not, I don't see much hope here. Some good acquisitions have been made by NetApp but the track record in incorporating these products into the portfolio is horrible. Most of those products have ended up being discontinued.
    Forcing people to take vacation twice a year for company shut downs is not good for people new to the company because they have not accrued much vacation yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of multiple layers of management and useless "tactical" teams... promote from within instead of hiring outside management. There is no career path here whatsoever - change this and people will be more motivated and will stay with the company longer.

    Good but political infighting over recent re-org has made it a pretty stressful and unproductive environment

    I worked at NetApp as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of very bright people. Supportive of each others work

    Cons

    Management talks the talk, but is incapable of actually backing things up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on the same page
    Decide if utilization is the most important thing and if so, stop pressuring resources to do non-utilization work and then docking them when they do. How critical are the latest 'critical initiatives. Invest in people.
