Best place I have ever worked.

Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Wichita, KS

I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat co-workers! There are tons of opportunities here. The company makes you feel important and goes out of the way to make you feel comfortable and enjoy coming to work. There are always activities and events to take part in.

ConsToo many things to learn. Not especially a downside, but there are a lot of products to support. You need to specialize.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. thanks for giving me a positive reason to get out of bed every morning.

Good place to work

Member of Technical Staff II (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than a year

ProsVery friendly people. Everyone is willing to help.

The top level management are doing a really good job at motivating employees and providing insight into the company's plans and future.

There is a lot of work planned, and the product road map looks good.

Employees get cash rewards for going above and beyond their work. I have seen rewards being given 3 times in my team this year.

ConsThe first level managers could do a better job at yearly performance reviews.

Fun place to work but still can't figure out how they're in the top 10 places

Human Resources (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at NetApp as a contractor for less than a year

ProsGood people, many with deep experience in storage. Lots of opportunities for new grads to those with 15+ years experience. Easy to transfer to other jobs once you work there.

ConsNot sure how the company always gets ranked in the top 10 places to work. It's not a bad place to work but doesn't have more to offer than other notable tech employers

It all depends on the management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at NetApp full-time

ProsNetApp is one of those companies that sucks you in with a lot of perks such as a gym, quarterly beer bashes, and 3 cafes. It's a high profile company and has been rated in the top ten best places to work for about 5 years running.

ConsThe perks aren't free, they expect you to pay by being available all the time. The company is rated in the top 10 places to work because they offer employees an additional day off if they make it on the list. The company culture is a bit cold and people don't have much of a sense of team cohesiveness but untimately, I think it depends on your management. That is what really determines how you are going to do at a company. I had both good and bad management.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be more transparency at the company. The employee reviews of managers was a good start but employees need some sort of recourse if they are not happy with their management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
