    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, Work from home.

    Cons

    Lots of problems, I am yet to meet anyone I would call 'smart' in Bangalore centre. Most IITians do not consider it as a worthwhile option. Culture of pretend expertise and incumbent worship is huge. GPTW is no more than a blue pill for the semi drone types, which form the bulk of the engineering team. An aging technology stack keeps getting more and more bloated and ridiculously complex with time. No emphasis on code quality/conciseness, functions with 30k loc and tens of 'if' statements are considered 'routine' when the FOSS community scoffs at anything over 2k. Facing financial distress lately, reasons for which are easy to guess. With btrfs shaping up the way it is, Netapp can only go the HP way. Processes and working styles already are so heavy weight, they have measurable gravitational field. Compensation is inadequate.

    Advice to Management

    Top management is part of the problem. We had the CEO proclaiming in 2010 that storage tiering is not a worthwhile idea. After competition successfully sold the idea, Netapp put out what is shoe-horned solution. This is very representative of thing. The prospects for C-mode look bleak in the SaaS/ITaaS world.
