    Pros

    Great Company name recognition and market presence. Good products and solutions.

    Cons

    Enabling Inside Sales to function as a full partner in a field sales centered culture is tough for any company and NetApp is still early in that evolution.

    Advice to Management

    There are many routes to market and success embrace and use them all, field, Inside Sales and channels.
