    I have been working at NetApp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Good atmosphere
    - NetApp had a few bad years, but are now leading in technology
    - Best quality products and service
    - Very professional work force
    - Speed of acting is high
    - Flexible working hours
    - Best colleagues I ever had
    - CEO is a very humble man that knows tech and how to develop the company into an innovative one

    Cons

    Could be a bit more informal internally with more trendy offices with some extra perks to connect people with each other. I also think that NetApp should give people more freedom on working remote.

    Advice to Management

    Make the offices more agile and trendy, offer perks like sport activities, free lunch, more Friday drinks, organized events, fun stuff in the office. But then again NetApp pays extremely well and is good for your career.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was lucky to get an interview through a company recruiter as a result of applying for a software engineer position via their website. The recruiter called me about about a month later and arranged for me to have an on-site interview which was scheduled a week
    ahead. I was interviewed by 4 very technical engineers and the interview lasted for 4 1/2 hours. The interview was made up of programming questions, designs questions and a
    discussion of my work over a long period since I have been in the industry a long time.
    Although I had prepared well ahead, I was still C-algorithm-savvy enough to answer
    some of their questions.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Given a binary tree, find the path from leaf node to leaf node such that the values of nodes in between are the maximum. The interviewer was interested more the maximum sum than the path itself.

      2. Write/describe algorithm to re-sort a rotated sorted array with O(1) complexity.

      3. Given an array of integers design an algorithm to return the sum of all integers in a given range with O(1) complexity. So, sum(i1, i2) returns sum of all integers i1 - i2. No for() loops.
      Now, how would you do it if the array were 2 dimensional?
      4. Merge 2 link lists. So, if the linked lists are L1 and L2, the resultant list will be L1->next = L2, L2->next = L1(original)->next; ... They may not have the same number of elements.   1 Answer
