Pros

time off when you need it. nice cafeteria, good food, nice people

Cons

Lots of contractors with great ideas that are willing to share with us permanent folks. However, unfortunate how some of the permanent folks have taken advantage of contractors ideas and represent them as their own. It is called job security. Also seems that some of my fellow arrogant perm. peers that have not been doing their job, have an attitude that they are untouchable as far as ever getting layed off. They need a reality check.

Advice to Management

Think Senior Mgm't should hire some individuals to work undercover in the company to see what really is going on. Seems to be alot of dead wood in the co. all the way up to the Sr. Mgmt level.
One manager gets moved from one dept to another dept because he can't do his job in the other dept. only to rely on other Jr. level individuals recommendations so that he can present these as his own recommendations to Sr. Mgm't. Company needs to do a shake up and needs to readdress the systems and processes currently in place.

    Pros

    Bright, nice people to work with. If you do a good job, there is opportunity for flexibility in your work. People let you know when your work makes a difference.
    We're growing.

    Cons

    The pace is brisk-- not a place for slackers or those who don't like to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are visible to and listening to employees. The new CEO is not as well known as Dan was.

    NetApp is a great company but Senior IT leadership leaves a lot to be desired!

    Pros

    Great company with great earning potential and bonuses for hard workers.
    Great technology and great minds - a wonderful learning experience.
    Very supportive of continued training.
    A certain amount of flexibility and allowances for working from home.

    Cons

    The outsourcing of IT in 2009 was handled badly from the perspective of those who lost their jobs, as well as those who remained. Executive management identified those who would be laid off without input from middle management, who had no say in who from their staff would be laid off. Some only found out the day before or day of the layoffs in 2009. The number of reorgs in IT says it all, and there are some Sr Managers and Directors who should never be allowed to talk to human beings.

    The number of IT senior/mid-level staff who have left NetApp over the course of the past couple of years to move to other Silicon Valley companies says it all.

    Advice to Management

    A lean IT budget is one thing but when are you going to look at the number of reorgs in IT and the real reasons why? Could it be IT executive management's strategy is a bit faulty?
