The NetApp culture is the best that I have experienced.

HW Engineering (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI have the privilege with working with some of the most talented individuals in the industry, given the challenging changing environment that we are in, migrating to the cloud. Pay and benefits are on par with the best in the industry.

ConsIn HW engineering, lack of the ability to advance. Company develops experts of certain portions of the position skill sets, and were not always able to fully utilize individual skill sets.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider development of management from within, rather than development of management from external sources.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Amazing Company

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Research Triangle Park, NC

I worked at NetApp as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat peers, beautiful campus, friendly atmosphere. Everyone is willing to help and very much enthusiastic about their jobs.

ConsNot really anything to say here, company helps you out if you don't like your team or job and helps you find a new one.

A growing company with high potential

Field Administrator (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than 3 years

Prospeople are amazing! flexible hours

Conssometimes difficult to get promotions

Advice to Senior ManagementReward loyal employees - when trying to get a promotion, don't punish them for an internal move (when one can often receive bigger raises if they left for the same role).

Best company I have ever worked for.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLots of opportunities. Actually cared about the well-being of their employees. Positive, challenging, and healthy work environment. I learned a great deal!!!!! Rewarding.

ConsNo longer innovating. Lacks product strategy and direction, "one trick pony", very demanding

Advice to Senior ManagementFind someone to merge with to expand market opportunities and grow product offerings. Take an outside look in and "disrupt" your own market for your benefit.
