I have been working at NetApp

Pros

Flex time, great campus, great benefits, and employees are respected and valued. The Professional Services / Sales organization is challenging and has many opportunities for growth.

Cons

after hours and weekend work at times due to my customer's schedules. The Professional Services positions can be stressful at times and have a lot of travel depending on the time of year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep listening to your employees, continue to offer career advancement or horizontal moves in the company. I would like to see more stock option grants offered as incentives.

    I have been working at NetApp

    Pros

    Great people, great management, excellent benefits, products that are unique and therefore easy to sell. Company is growing, and a testament to the customer value of the products is that NetApp grew during the recent economic downturn.

    Cons

    Understaffed in some areas results in overworked staff in those areas.
    Top focus areas get all the attention and funding, resulting in disenchantment elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do a better job of recognizing and funding those areas that are critical but are not in the top focus areas.

    Pros

    Good technology if you are in core data storage areas
    Good pay & benefits

    Cons

    We can create a linked list of management chain with the link property set as personal acquaintence. Talent is irrelevent in selecting people in high positions - favoritism rules. Managers form opinion not based on rsults of work but on the opinion of their favorite "lead". Very bad for energetic neutral engineers who are not "aligned" to management drinking cool-aid.

    There are quite a few good managers around and if you are lucky to be with them, your life is good. Having few product lines, job rotation is not an option and best way to advance your career path is to leave for a better job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid management and some architects with questionable talent in a lot of groups will pull down the company. When favoritism & politics rule, bad talents accumulate and let the good talent leave.
