    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 have been working at NetApp (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are supportive of one another.
    The management team is innovative..
    NetApp has the speed and innovation of a start-up with the stability of a corporate powerhouse.

    Cons

    The approach of a single system that does everything seems to be losing to the specialized systems.
    Lately, there are so many changes that it is hard to build strong forward momentum.
    Company moral has slipped lately.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly define the overall direction of the company so that all the micro-changes make some sense.
