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

good work environment, collaboration... smart people who want to do the right thing (at least at the Director level and below)

Cons

Senior management is not very visionary. They confuse marketing slogans with leadership ... very internally focused

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, culture, products, excellent campus, cafe and gym.

    Cons

    Politics, process driven and unfocused. Inexperienced program and product managers

    Advice to Management

    Cut the dead wood and not the people that actually do work. HR needs to punish managers that do not consultant existing employees when doing new hire interviews or fail to do yearly focals. No one likes the smaller cubicles being rolled out in Sunnyvale.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    NetApp provides you with the salary, benefits, etc. so that you can give your 100% to your work. Most employees don't find micromanagement to be a problem, and there's definitely work / life flexibility to be had...IF you can get the job done in 40 hours.

    Cons

    Marketing management was extremely politicized and unproductive in 2010-2011. A lot of reorg happened so it might be a different story today.
