    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    Nice work atmosphere, employees and managers are really cool. You might end up having to be a workaholic depending on the team.

    Cons

    Not sure how the company's long term path might fit your careers goals, especially if you are starting as an NCG at NetApp. They do not have too many new projects, so you will end up fixing a lot of Bugs along with a few features. Most of the code has already been developed.

    Pros

    Very Prompt scheduling for phone Interviews. The recruiters did not waste any time in getting back with various time options and the process was really good.

    Cons

    Though NetApp boasts of a great culture, the impression one receives while interviewing is totally the opposite. They made me sit in a meeting room for over 2 hours with no communication .Looks like the interviewer did not turn up nor the recruiter. Finally one lady from the senior management turned up and blew her own trumpet about how successful she was. I answered 3 questions in about 4 hours as I did not get a chance to speak at all. I felt they conducted the interview for the heck of it and there was no real intent to hire. Companies like these should be the face of hypocrisy. Companied with great culture do not put up banners on their buildings! They let it speak from the employees. Whew! Even bad experiences can make up for good learning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a tab on the interview process. Employers and job-seeking candidated work on symbiotic living.

    I have been working at NetApp

    Pros

    No positive think toward this networking group. It's not a diversified group.

    Cons

    The interviewer interview experienced people with only logic issues. Four H1 people behaves very unprofessional. They behave they are offering the job and they feel like a judge to candidate. It's very weird group and not pleasant environment. When ask what is the job qualification, they answer there is no job guide line. Whenever they find right candidate they hire. They are hiring not based what needs in stead of based of prejudice. How the company can have a group of people control the opportunity to fill in the position.

    "Worst" company to work for

    I worked at NetApp full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, company benefits are excellent and employee services are best I've experienced.

    Cons

    Not the "Best Pace to a Work"

    In my case, horrible: unreasonable workload, poor training, tools and incessant ad hoc requests with unrealistic deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for "candid" feedback from operations employees, not engineering, services or HR. I never found a single person who agreed it was one of the best places to work.
