Pros

Great salary, benefits and bonuses. Also great technology to learn. Decent number of opportunities within the company to move to different roles over the course of several years.

Cons

The support organization lacks enabled leadership. Management has very little span of control up to the senior levels. This creates an environment where executive orders are passed down but then management is not enabled to effectively complete those goals. It also does not allow front line management the flexibility to make improvements where needed to retain top talent. Finally, there is a major degree of separation between those with the authority and those with the knowledge to implement effective change. Then end result is senior technical resources frustrated with neutered management.

Advice to Management

To senior leadership, put trust in your front line managers. Enable them to run the business as it should be run. Let the people who are close to the business make decisions that can impact talent retention and overall job satisfaction.

    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 Management

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