I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay and benefits. The company truly cares for its employees. NetApp is a great place to work, and always will be. GREAT people who truly care and want to succeed.

Cons

Has lost its vision in recent years. As seen with the recent involvement of a hedge fund manager and board changes. [Elliot management] You hear a lot of "we are a big company now", but that is a euphemism for being dysfunctional. The services organization is mired in politics to the point of impacting the business.

Advice to Management

Hold senior services management accountable. Diversify the product line, NetApp still only has cDOT and other technologies are catching up. Inspire people & lead them. You are still great!
