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

    Pros

    Excellent products and desire to do the right thing for customers.

    Cons

    Starting to see the rigidity and slow moving beaucracy that comes with a larger workforce and it is eroding the traditional culture

    Advice to Management

    Get back the basic and find ways to reduce requirements on workforce, not force zero value requirements on us.

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

    Pros

    Successful product backed by a strong sales force
    A lot of technology to sink your teeth into
    Typical big-company compensation and benefits
    Many capable and nice coworkers

    Cons

    Super slow pace. Many talented and dynamic people get frustrated and leave.
    Dumb processes. Productivity is appalling. Tools and mindset are 30 years old.
    Very hierarchical. Decisions are handed down without explanation. Engineers are just workers.
    Increasingly political. NetApp was once blessedly free of politics, but not any more.
    Stagnant. Gigantic technical debt. "Top priorities" are not linked to any sort of fresh thinking.
    Institutional paralysis. Even when everyone can see that something doesn't work, we keep right on doing it. The right conversations never take place. Innovation has been bred out of the population, especially on the management side.

    Advice to Management

    Fight the big-company pathologies.
