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

Pros

NetApp is a good company. It has great culture, and good life-work balance. The working environment is friendly, and some of the engineers even have their own offices.

Cons

It does not have any real innovations any more.
It used to have many smart engineers working on building cool products. Now many of those engineers left the company, and the product it delivers always behind the market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

NetApp need a new innovation to catch up with the current cloud market. If wafl cannot do it, build a new file system.

    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    Clear communication of all top-down company plans and strategies via multiple channels. Managers and directors are in place to support and help excel their under employees. The company culture of hard work, team collaboration, and friendliness is preserved and encouraged highly. NetApp compensates employees well with salaries, stocks, bonuses, plenty of vacation time, etc. Superb medical insurance and benefit options. More than anything, at NetApp, if you are creative, can think outside the box for new or improved ways to do something, part of NetApp's culture is to embrace those ideas and give employees opportunities to foster those ideas. NetApp has been known to "purge" employed individuals that have later been found to not align well with the company culture. In other words, those that do not "fit in" well with the culture, tend not to stay long. That's how seriously this company values its rich culture. Lastly, every quarter, NetApp throws beer bash events for employees only which are great. Also NetApp has fun family and kid oriented events around the big holidays. HQ has a state of the art workout gym facility.

    Cons

    In my experience, I've found that moving around inside and advancing inside the company is encouraged and welcomed but is not always advantageous from a monetary perspective. But that was just my experience. That may not be the case in every event. NetApp has very good products that customers appreciate however NetApp product is VERY expensive compared to some competitors. NetApp is not growing exponentially as it once did, instead growth leveling off in some markets. This changes thing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your HR responsiveness to internal employee inquiries. It seems HR is inconsistent when internal employees submit applications personally or also internal employee referrals. Sometimes they are prompt and other times (more often than not) it can take weeks before an HR rep responds to an inquiry.

    Pros

    Work life balance, Culture, product itself.

    Cons

    Could encourage personal growth of the employees. Not that they don't. But, they could do more.
