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

Pros

Netgear is a unique place where you can develop your career in a dynamic fashion that fits with your individual interests. Lots of opportunity to work across department lines and take on new roles/responsibilities. Definitely a place where you can learn a lot.

Any employee can have a large impact on the organization, despite it being a global company. This makes for a satisfying work experience.

Salaries are competitive or better than average. Performance is rewarded.

Cons

Employees need to be able to manage themselves (not for everyone).

Advice to Management

Upper management is pretty solid. The organization is "flat", so upper management tends to be very visible. I've found them to be very approachable. I'd encourage them to maintain this as the company grows.

    I worked at NETGEAR full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management
    Great Leadership
    Compensation
    Team / culture / people
    Ownership of products/projects
    Exposure and opportunity for advancement
    Good work / life balance

    Cons

    If I had to say one, it would be some employees take a while to adapt to an environment where you take ownership of an entire product or project and they are used to compartmentalized structure, only work in a specific area over and over again. At Netgear, you will find you exposure broadened and if your not ready for that, it could be too much. However, the management and leadership is prepared to equip the team for success and the supporting cast is designed to ensure success, support and stability.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Good benefit, different product line, good place to lean about network products, free drink, good food during the company events.

    Cons

    Old fashion management style, no product innovation, limited communication within groups, not a fun place to work. Stock option is worthless, they need to change it to vesting stock.

    Advice to Management

    Create better working environment for employees, provide training for managers to be a better people manager.
