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

Pros

Good people and decent culture.

Cons

As previously stated, big company issues now. CFO probably has to much input for an engineering company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick to what has got NetApp to where it is. Innovation, people and thinking outside the box.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, flexible, good people to work with. Benefits are good. Good work-life balance. Nice family-friendly company events. People want to do well. Management strives to maintain a good culture.

    Cons

    Large company processes impede efficiency. Inconsistent middle management. Recent business climate has made rather difficult decisions emerge that impacted ability to effectively perform. We are constantly being asked to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many layers of management. The upper management should find better ways to connect with their employees more personally to complement the good large scale communications.

    Pros

    Great CEO, aspire to be a good culture, exceptional technical talent

    Cons

    Remarkable success story, but now suffering from big company syndrome. Over the years, as storage startups have come and gone, NTAP has become a place for the survivors to flock to as one of the last few pure storage companies. As a result, it has become top heavy with senior leaders trying to build their careers and more and more energy is spent focusing on internal politics vs how to survive in the era of the Third Platform. Founders have slowly faded into the background. Missed the flash array first wave now playing catch-up. Every acquisition became something to suck into ONTAP vs thrive on its own, and now ONTAP as a delivery vehicle for IP is much too laden. ESG nice try, but their technology also becoming irrelevant to data center. Now, too expensive to play in the data center and SMB flocking to cloud so entry suffering. Billions spent on Clustered ONTAP - perhaps finally paying off but fighting cheap server scale-out in data centers. Like the server incumbents, disruption coming from places they never dreamed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get while the gettin's good. Take a tip from EMC and let your acquisitions truly diversify the company, not homogenize it. The ONTAP power brokers need to retire.
