    I have been working at NETGEAR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work / life balance compared to other Silicon Valley companies. Good internal moral. Interesting range of different products to work on.

    The company treats the employees well and with respect.

    Cons

    Somewhat limited advancement opportunities due to smaller company size and very flat management structure, but this is dependent on which business unit one is working in.

    Compensation dollars are competitive, but stock growth is somewhat flat.

    Advice to Management

    Continue development of diverse product offerings
