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

Pros

I have a lot of respect for the C*Os. Great products and team culture. Great work/life balance. They want employees to be productive so you're given the tools to get things done.

Cons

I'm pretty unhappy about the layoffs in 2013; why do this when we're still making money? Some other policies suggest that "large-company disease" is setting in, e.g., why should any manager have the ability to blacklist any ex-employee (i.e., can never be rehired)? Some departments have been decimated and demoralized by bad management hires.

Advice to Management

Please consider instituting and acting on the results of 360° evaluations

    Pros

    Great culture, great place to work.

    Cons

    Becoming political and new leadership does not inspire the same passion and loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in close touch with your employee base. Watch the politics--people are really feeling it.
