    Pros

    The NetApp culture has brought some A players to the scene.

    Cons

    Middle managers are too technical and less capable of managing people. We keep losing these same great people to the competitors because of this lack of good management.

    Advice to Management

    Move technical people into technical leadership roles and get them out of leading divisions of people. Those leaders need to achieve excellence in building teams.
