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

    Pros

    Team atmosphere, flexibility and benefits.The pay is pretty good for the Pittsburgh area and there isn't too much corporate formalities but I think that is expected in high-tech companies.

    Cons

    It's hard to make a noticeable difference at such a large company and innovation seems to be stifled by Technical Directors edicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire business people with engineering backgrounds instead of business folk with a bad case of logorrhea.

    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    Everyone always willing to help if needed. NetApp cares about it's employees and works with each of them to ensure they are comfortable and happy while in a work environment.

    Cons

    You are providing tech support over the phone and with NetApp being worldwide sometimes there is a slight language barrier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My upper management was amazing. They maybe could have provided more one on one reviews regarding performance.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard working employees. In my 13 plus years at NetApp (Network Appliance) i worked with some of the brightest technical talent ever.

    Cons

    Most of the techies have been laid off or outsourced. NetApp is heavy with middle management, product managers and program managers. Most of these "managers" only generate email to each other and schedule meetings where the only action is to schedule another meeting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the technical company you were. Quit with the "Death by Powerpoint" management style. You need more employees creating and supporting products and less people dictating "Process and Procedure" that only serves to stop creativity. End the BS of "Everyone's First Job Is Sales". Let the techies be techies.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, great collaboration with other groups. Decent benefits which are getting better. Starting to really focus on employees and employee career growth.

    Cons

    As with any company, there are occasional frustrations with complex process or the individual person who is difficult to work with but all in all I would say there really are no serious cons to working at NetApp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on employees to improve loyalty and in turn improve productivity. Employees like to work for a company they can trust, not one they fear.
