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

Pros

Typical big company in the valley. Nice facilities, generally nice people around you. You have 5 volunteer days off annually. Good benefits, relatively relaxing environment.

Cons

Some teams are just full of back stabbers, including the manager. Someone who's been with the company for a long time, try to be hostile to the new comers.

Advice to Management

Be accessible to your people.

    I worked at NetApp full-time

    Pros

    + The company promotes a friendly atmosphere. Most people are very polite.
    + Interesting work (at least it was for me)

    Cons

    - Not all teams care about work life balance. Some people end up working 60 hours a week.
    - Disconnect between managers and engineers. They don't really seem to understand what's going on in the code, leaving it up to the engineer to explain to his/her manager why meeting a deadline is absolutely impossible working 40 hours per week.
    - Middle management could do with some more training.
    - Office politics is a big thing. The talker is valued more than the worker.
    - Egos. Especially in some of the core development teams, there seem to be arguments between senior engineers all the time. Junior engineers really have no say.
    - Most new hires look like international NCGs who are willing to work excessive overtime shifts, which might explain the shifting expectations of the engineering side.
    - Average pay for 40 hours. Horrible pay if you're putting in 60, which is not uncommon.
    - Not very diverse.

    Advice to Management

    Please get some training in people skills and management, and for God's sake... let go of your egos.

    Pros

    Executive leadership and product vision is positive

    Cons

    Politics and competitive atmosphere with middle management can create a departmental environment where negative behaviors are necessary to keep your position or status.
