Pros

If you are looking for a highly collaborative environment with opportunity to work hard and make an impact, then this is your place.

Cons

With high collaboration, comes the inability to make swift decisions. NetApp is a great place to work but has its internal pains around employee retention, lack of career development and cross-collaboration within certain business units.

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

    Pros

    Apparently they have a good work life balance which amounts to not doing much work.
    They have a garage,gym and beer bashes in the Sunnyvale offices

    Cons

    Management says No to any new projects/challenges
    As a young software engineer you want to write more code, make more changes, break things,fix them, learn ... these things don't happen at NetApp

    Pay is sub par. Really it just sucks to be a NetApp employee in terms of $$$.

    Fake Emphasis given on Great Place to Work rankings(who cares about this ?). Pay your employees handsomely, ask them to deliver, give them real work, challenge your employees -- you will automatically have a great place to work.

    Zero or fake or virtual guidance given on growing new talent.Personal development at work is a myth. I guess NetApp doesn't care about having a good ratio of experienced to young employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on real innovation, emphasize on new technology. Make an effort to ship products with fancy features.

    Time to Market is Key, be on par with the start ups out there. NetApp can beat every start up if it decides to wake up. Drive more research. Focus on shipping research and prototypes as quickly as possible to customers. If the driver isn't there write it, take risks.
