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

Pros

Netapp has a great culture. Many perks that other companies don't offer and wouldn't even think of offering (Beer Bash every friday).

Company is large enough to accommodate various career paths

Technical staff gets to put their work behind them when they finish their shift. No afterhours calls

Cons

Support Staff is very lean. Essentially doing the job of 1.5-2 support engineers. Can get overwhelming at times. Not for the weak!

Advice to Management

Need to hire more support staff in RTP

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    NetApp is a large company, but has the culture of a smaller company. Very open, direct, and not a lot of politics going on. There's a reason NetApp is rated as one of the best companies to work for year after year.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to promote depending on which business unit you're working within. Some promote faster, some much, much slower.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and working hours

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Definitely top heavy. Too many managers just go to the meetings and delegate as well as too much internal politics and too busy covering up their rears.. Definitely not what it used to be...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the kissing up and kicking down managers and replace them with true leaders.
