    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    New CEO George Kurian is awesome, well- liked & respected, very warm & inspiring. We have an enviable product line, GREAT engineering & development, customers that love NetApp & want to see us succeed. Culture & values are strong and powerful force for good, people really LOVE this company & the respectful approach to business

    Cons

    CEO Tom Georgens recently asked to step down by board, FAR too many layoffs in recent years- we lose REALLY great people. Morale is taking a hit & we have some in leadership roles that don't mirror the company culture & values...not cool

    Advice to Management

    Employee listening survey- pay attention to that & utilizing the top talent you've attracted. Don't encourage or reward 'leadership' that manages UP or isn't as inclusive, collaborative as we're meant to be.

    I worked at NetApp full-time

    Pros

    It is a good experience to work at. You should all work there if you are planning to interview for this job position. They give good benefits and they also have a fair job salary.

    Cons

    Some of the cons of this company are that sometimes they dont give overtime. Other than that this company is a good company to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing they are good. They should offer free food and more overtime.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NetApp has a wide assortment of excellent employees that truly want what is best for the company. They work hard to make a terrific product and succeed a vast majority of the time. Benefits are rock solid with a well thought out remote worker program.

    Cons

    The current strategy to get them off a slump is off and currently requires a great deal of spin to get it back on point. NetApp suffers greatly from NIH (Not Invented Here) by many of the old guard and their disciples. The sales push is covering existing accounts and attempting to get them to migrate rather than trying to take market share. For a product company sales are king but the short sighted approach that is common throughout the organization can lead to more strategic approaches being ignored. Culture is what you make of it but in the case you must conform to the committee driven approach of the NetApp culture in order to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus away from trying to winning existing floor tiles in the data center that you already own and start going more heavily after your competitors. Clustered Data OnTap can be a VMAX killer if you treat it as such and stop trying to just replace your existing footprint.

    Great people. Interesting work. Good pay

    Cons

    Processes, and multi-site nature of the Organiztion hinder innovation. Ideas and initiatives are rolled out without thinking them through

    I have been working at NetApp full-time

    Pros

    They place a strong emphasis on maintaining their culture. They care a lot about being a great place to work. Great flexibility with hours, schedule, and most of the executives are innovative and supportive.

    Cons

    Don't have as many benefits as other companies in the area - no child care, no free meals, no help with transportation (it would be great to have a bus to the East Bay like other tech companies).

    Pros

    Benefits really are amazing. Health coverage is fantastic. Rarely work extra hours and pay is excellent compared to other companies.

    Cons

    While there's a lot of encouragement for innovation, the actual work is severely hampered by reactionary inefficient processes designed to overly protect NetApp's intellectual property. It just sucks to have to develop and test all code on virtual machines that are 100% cut off from the outside world all in the name of keeping the source code safe. It's a real PITA and sullies what was once a much better company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the open source identification process and get rid of the engineering wall.

    Pros

    Good people work here . We have a healthy work-life balance and treat each other well.

    Cons

    The company is facing some business challenges. Time will tell if we can turn it around.

    Advice to Management

    With all this change - take care of the hard working employee you have - attrition could be a problem.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are still good people working here, but as each day passes, those numbers become fewer and fewer. The week of volunteer time off is great.

    Cons

    They are losing their best sales talent, and then telling partners NetApp is better to be rid of them. All of 2014 Club winners have left the Central region, and turnover is out of control, specifically because the RD is a terror. They are no longer focused on strategic relationships (although they insist on and preach the contrary) but merely generating revenue at any cost. This includes bullying customers and sales reps. The end is nigh.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what you are doing to your brand, cut the arrogance as it's driving customers to other providers, purge your middle-sales management who are driving out good talent and replacing them with beancounters. Most important, drop the GPTW...no one is buying it and you appear grossly out of touch.
