    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.

    Pros

    Being a storage company is the first advantage. Storage is evolving technology. So, somewhat good place to be.
    Work is neither too much nor less. They allow working from home.
    I think, there is a good work life balance here.

    Cons

    The teams are controlled by very old people, who just settle there as if it is a government employment (People aged above 50 as developers).
    The managers give too much priority to those old people. Com'on Netapp... Get rid of them and not the young people. The young ones you fired recently were not performing because of these old people.
    Horrible pay increments and bonus. At-least for the last four years.
    They follow LRU algorithm for promotions... Those who got recently will only get again :-)

    Advice to Management

    The very old people who knows WAFL better are treated as gods of the company.
    That must be avoided. Those gods are not helping Netapp. They are helping WAFL to age well and made it a worst file system over time.
    If you get rid of those gods, young people will take over and might make it better.
    Your wafl is a clutter now. Find alternative or get rid of that clutter in it (not with the help of gods again)
