I worked at NetApp as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

Smart, smart individuals. The team I worked with was brilliant and was way ahead of any other company in that same field. If you like structure, it's there.

Interns & employees get to use the gym and there's free food once in a while. The campus is huge and the VTA is across the street from the main building. The cafeteria food tastes a lot better than many other companies'.

Cons

NetApp loves to talk about how great of a place it is to work, however, it pales in comparison to companies with more liberal cultures like Google or LinkedIn.

The opportunities to grow or move around the company are not very apparent. Teams within the same organization aren't very collaborative and your ability to do something is often swayed by politics. While there is structure, processes dictate everything.

For the younger employees, it can be a restricting environment. Most of the employee population are in their 30s-50s. Overall, the culture is quite conservative.
