Pros

Benefits are great, people genuinely care and try to help each other out. Training available when time permits. Interesting products and good senior management.

Cons

Management style of different regions vastly different. Obvious drive to push the "numbers" at all costs. Starting to see shift in Professional Services Organization towards micro-management. PS folks in one region no longer in control of their own scheduling which limits flexibility and growth.

Advice to Management

Give scheduling power back to the people in the field and re-establish the fact that you trust your people to do the right thing in the interest of the company.

    Pros

    NetApp has a focus of including employees in important decisions and caring for employees - 5 paid days of volunteer time off, stock option exchange program, no salary cuts during the downturn. Employees at all levels are included in determining the business strategy and go forward planning.

    Cons

    I can't think of any!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work - employees have a high level of trust because of your integrity, open communication and the efforts made to keep them whole during the downturn!

    Pros

    Great company. World class management team. Executives you can trust. Very customer focused.

    Cons

    Over time company has forgotten who made it great. Engineers. There is simply too much talk, and very little action. First and second level managers do not have engineer's best interest at hand. Developer productivity is abysmal. Seriously please look at LOC / engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Too much hierarchy, talk etc in engineering. Establish risk-taking attitude again in engineers. They have been smothered by incompetent managers. Reward hard skills. YOU CAN DO IT. Screw EMC, Go NetApp :)
