    Very rewarding.

    Regional Manager (Former Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsFirst and foremost, the product...it just rocks! Technology is always changing and NetApp vision is lock step and in sync with these changes.

    ConsThe culture has all but dried up and employees are expected to do more with less. You expect this in approach in any successful business but unfortunately there is no light at the end of the tunnel and management just expected more rather than staff appropriately.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your team members and act appropriately.
