    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    NetApp was a great company to work for from a culture and product perspective. They always promoted a healthy work/life balance and respected their employees. Their storage arrays were cutting edge technology with a unified architecture and an easy to manage product.

    Cons

    Ontap Cluster mode.. I personally feel that NetApp should have ditch the convergence of Ontap and cluster mode a long time ago but they kept plugging along until it finally happened. From my perspective, the product went from easy to implement and manage to something that became very difficult. I understand that things are getting better but it was one reason for my departure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Corporate believe in innovation and culture are not just catch phrases.

    Cons

    Great place to work, but not an easy industry to work in. Come ready to compete every day!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to catch employees doing things right.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Smart people. A collaborative environment where people help each other. I've worked here for 8 years and compared to other Fortune 500 companies I've worked before, NetApp is far and away the best! It's an environment where the company trusts employees to get their jobs done and empowers us to make important business decisions at every level.

    Cons

    NetApp promotes work/life balance which does not equal laziness as some have suggested. It hasn't been my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue our unique culture of open communication to employees. We trust you guys to lead us in the right direction!

    Pros

    Collaborative Culture, Candor is evident everywhere which leads to Getting Things Done. Values Employees and helps them get to where they want to go (lots of examples in Central Area). Great technology to bring to our customers to help solve problems.

    Cons

    Sometimes reacts too conservatively to address growth goals, however hiring ahead of the curve now is a GREAT thing and perhaps a change in philosophy here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep sharing openly, stay aggressive in the market.

    Pros

    NetApp empowers you to take control of your job. You are given the tools to not only succeed but have a fulfilling work experience. They keep the perfect balance between work and family with plenty of PTO, holidays, and events. They make you part of the company and not just a face in the crowd. The constant push to keep the products at the forefront of innovation is extremely important to the company.

    Cons

    I've had zero problems that weren't addressed while at NetApp. Any issues work related, compensation, etc were all addressed to my satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employees involved with all the information and direction of the company.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's hard to believe that I'm going to celebrate 8 years at NetApp this summer. I'm often asked in interviews what I like most about NetApp or why I'm still here. While I could wax on for an hour about "my why", the answer is simple. I love who I have become while being a part of this team. The team, the challenges, the people, the killer technology and the opportunities have been more than I could have possibly imagined. I wonder how many people feel that way about their career and job?

    Cons

    Compensation could be more competitive
