    Pros

    Smart people, energetic and great collaborators who are willing to get things done at lower levels.

    Cons

    Too many managers/directors who are not effective leaders. Bad individual contributors that got promoted or hired due to "club" clique causing politics.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of layers of extra management and bring back the working employees who got things done. Too many managers with small handful of directs.

    Pros

    Good products that are different in the market which allows us to position ourselves really well. The NetApp story is definitely where it needs to be and executing on that story is really tough.

    Cons

    1. 1st Line management couldn't sell NetApp if they had to which is a problem
    2. Too many 1st line managers in sales
    3. More concerned about best places to work list than just proving NetApp is a good place to work at
    4. There are talkers and there are "doers" and we have too many talkers
    5. Cannot keep the good ones and WILL NOT get rid of the bad ones

    Advice to Management

    Are the people that are here accountable and helping drive more business and how do we minimize managers and maximize the sales team?

    Pros

    Competitive benefits
    Beautiful campus in Sunnyvale

    Cons

    Grew up so fast and didn't let infrastructure keep up. Too many layers of decision-makers, so nothing gets done because although you have approval to move on a project there's a good chance you won't get upper management support for closure. Work-life balance is NOT encouraged.

    People are nice and work together.

    Cons

    Push Clustered Mode too strong and miss the flash market.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Many managers flexible about work schedule/commute.

    Cons

    Execs flailing and not making decisions in a timely manner. Too much wasted talent/cycles planning & re-planning and waiting for next re-org. Employees losing faith and management losing credibility. Culture was what kept them afloat. No longer.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO needs to get it right this time. And, no more bad outside hires.
