I worked at NetApp full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good pay, employee appreciation, a good place to work, meaningful work.

Cons

An expanding middle layer of management that is more concerned with politics then producing a great product. NetApp is losing their lead, their innovation, the engine that drove their success is almost out, yet they haven't been able to turn the corner and be an efficient management company like EMC. They are ruthless, like EMC; but, without the effectiveness of EMC.

Advice to Management

Become a ruthless and effective shark like EMC, or an innovative company like the old NetApp. Standing in the middle of the road will get you run over.
