    Pros

    Great benefits, good overall company, great perks, great culture. I really like working for NetApp as a company, the culture here is great.

    Cons

    The company has grown rapidly over the past 10 years, as a result some incompetent managers have been promoted rapidly as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you do not know what you are talking about. Its probably best to let someone that does talk instead.

    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    First and foremost, the product...it just rocks! Technology is always changing and NetApp vision is lock step and in sync with these changes.

    Cons

    The culture has all but dried up and employees are expected to do more with less. You expect this in approach in any successful business but unfortunately there is no light at the end of the tunnel and management just expected more rather than staff appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your team members and act appropriately.
