Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at NETGEAR full-time

Pros

Salary is good. Most people say hello. Most people are reasonable with of course a few exceptions that have tantrums.

Cons

Amount of work hours (and weekends). Favoritism. Appreciation not acknowledged well. Management continues to go about its same path with little regard to employee voices opinions.

Advice to Management

Losing people not by natural attrition but discontentment.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity in a fast paced company.

    Cons

    Departments are silo's. Favorites are played heavily. Poor communication from leadership. Basically, it is "Put your head down and work, don't ask questions, and whaterver you do...do NOT question authority."

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to how management treat their people. There is an undercurrent of dissatisfied people who will never say anything for fear of being ostracized..

    * Answer to everything is to outsource it
    * Dismissive and condescending management in Support

    Advice to Management

    Quit managing by business objective and learn to value your people. Be more open to the changes coming your way.
