    Pros

    NetApp has a very good work-life balance. Very family friendly. Great company. It is a great place to develop your career.

    Cons

    Starting this year, annual raises were suspended until further notice. Sometimes they don't seem very competitive for potential hires.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Positive vibe, great work life balance, interesting projects, down to Earth culture, competitive compensation, and a promising future. Everything you could want in an employer.

    Cons

    Given recent history, the company is a bit quick on the layoff trigger. Not necessarily the right way to pacify shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees want to be there and contribute to great things. Give them peace of mind that there will be no further layoffs anytime soon.

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

    Pros

    NetApp will go to great lengths for CSAT, even to the point of doing things that will not be in its best interests. Emphasis on CSAT is what drew me to NetApp.

    Cons

    Management indecision is an issue that has affected performance of the company since I have been there. The company can be heading in a great direction, but management change direction with no warning.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to choose a direction and stick with it longer than 6 months. Support is not utilized as a tool that can solidify relationships with customers

    I have been working at NetApp (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company culture is the highlight of working for NetApp. Though some of the recent layoffs have been tough, they do treat there employees well.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company hasn't been selling much of the Clustered Ontap products. The stock price has been on a downward trend.

    Advice to Management

    Moral is at an all time low, that needs to be fixed. There's a lot of turn around lately, and if that continues I fear the brain-drain will be detrimental to the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Low vacation - only 12 days to start, even if you have > 10yrs experience. System Engineering management is weak corporate-wide. Here we are 4 months into a new fiscal year and we still haven't had our reviews from last year.
