Current Employee - Software Engineering Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great people and opportunities. Great leadership provided by Senior Engineers. The pay is competitive and the benefits are good. Many good people have been attracted to NetApp, because of the "Great Places to Work" ratings.

Cons

Culture is being eroded by politics and layers of less than effective directors and VPs. Most of the good technical directors have left the company leaving behind technical leaders who are more political motivated than technically savvy.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Staff level and people at or Director level are good. TD's are very good but stuck at the spindle level.

    Cons

    VP level and above is more of a club. People that do not deserve the position are there. RTP is a joke run by people who in other companies would be glorified SE's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw out the bums and ask Hitz to lead engg. again.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, stable place to work (except around quarter-end). Used to be a great culture but lost its way after CEO Dan and CFO Steve left a couple years ago.

    Cons

    Lots of the driven, high-achieving people have left. Serious people remain, the people with a sense of humor have gradually left. Doesn't seem to have the same sense of urgency it used to. Lost its soul a few years ago, lost its way toward growth around the same time. Good stable place to work, tho.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the people in the lower levels of the organization again, and not just the engineers. Find out what people really think about what could be done to turn things around.
