    Pros

    Awesome perks; Great manager, flexibility, work/life balance is important to the company. And sometimes it's the little things - really good coffee, great cafe. I didn't comment on the Compensation and benefits because I was a contractor.

    I can't think of any.

    Thanks for making my time at NetApp so enjoyable.
