At NetApp, your expertise is what drives our growing success
NetApp is the ideal place to give your career a boost. Our global setting highly values and fosters a healthy and happy work-life balance. Plus, our enthusiasm is genuine as we strive to help customers manage and protect the world's most important data through our Data Fabric solution. A large part of our drive, confidence and satisfaction is derived from the direction we receive from Executive Management’s leadership and visionary goals. With that level of trust in place, it truly does impact and influence how we work together to reach our goals and to take command of our responsibilities.
We take that same enthusiasm outside of our NetApp doors, as we are encouraged worldwide to take advantage of our Volunteer Time Off benefit. This fantastic perk allows all employees, from our Interns to our Executive Staff, the opportunity to realize the importance of lending a helping hand to support our local communities throughout the year.

What NetApp employees are saying...
“In the almost two years I have been here I can’t remember a time that I have said ‘I can’t wait to go home.’ We just don’t have that atmosphere here.”
Katherine R. - Office Coordinator, Waltham
"The main thing I tell my peers outside of NetApp is about the honest, open dialogue I hear from our executives at the corporate and department All Hands. I’ve never had that level of honesty and openness before. NetApp also has a large tenured base of employees which I think says a lot about the culture and the work people do here.”
Morgan W. - Workplace Resources, Sunnyvale
“As a new grad I wasn’t sure what path I was going to choose when I came here and what NetApp would be like in terms of professional development. My buddy has a similar background to mine and knew what I was going through. It was really helpful to me because I was able to streamline my professional development, know what are the skills I need to build, how do I improve my skills and how do I reach my goals in terms of a professional career.”
Onyeka E. - Customer Listening Project Manager, Sunnyvale

I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 3 years)
NetApp has a forward plan that is communicates to it's employees. And it's actually taking the steps openly to make these changes. The new management team from the CEO down are very competent and honest about what is needed to be done and what is at stake if we are not successful in this transition. Expectations are clearly laid out for staff on what they need change and focus on for all of us to all be successful.
I feel like the changes the company has made and the future bets they are making are appropriate and will lead NetApp to still being relevant in 5 to 10 years if executed properly.
The company has a different feel and some of the long timers are not supper keen on changing but in this space you now need to change or slowly die off. I think it's inspiring to see what NetApp can become in the future and the value it will deliver not only to it's customer and shareholders, but also ultimately it's employees is retains.
below is a list of all the Pro's to working here.
-Very good culture
-Above avg compensation
-Excellent work life balance
-Great legacy products
-Real products that work in the cloud today
-Product pipeline that will keep us relevant in this changing market place
-everyone has a voice
Changes mean lots of people that can't or wont change the way they do things and the skills sets they have will be let go. This can hurt moral for the short term. No one like to come to work and see their friends being walked out the door. New accountability mandates can lead to people feeling like the could be next to be let go. although this has stabilized quite a bit in the past year.
List of Cons
-Customers are moving more and more to the cloud. traditional storage slice of the pie for NetApp to own is getting smaller. Only way to grow is to take market share faster from your competitors than then your slice of pie you compete to win shrinks. long term this is a losing proposition.
-Bets on the cloud products must pay off for the company to succeed long term.
-further downsizing will most likely need to happen to keep the company stock up.
-Being the best company is a slowly shrinking market is not any easy pill to swallow. it's like being voted least ugly at an ugly contest. your still ugly, just not as much as the next person.
Advice to Management
Keep up the hard work to keep making the changes necessary to provide value to customers and shareholders.
I applied online. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2017.
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.
