    I worked at NetApp full-time

    Pros

    Standard benefits, however 401K match vests over 3 years
    Nice Gym, and grounds
    Under cover parking

    Cons

    -Below market salaries
    -Not growing resulting in layoffs in May 2013 and another rounds coming in the next couple of weeks
    -Poor middle level management, lots of cronysm, extremely slow to make decisions, everyone is trying to protect their territory.
    -Missed the boat on Flash array and are paying the price (announced layoffs this last week)
    -Very rigid work culture most departments require being in the office and very much a culture of manager looking over your shoulder and its very stifling.
    -Huge marketing effort around the "great place to work " this is a mirage.
    -Oh and the campus is situated next to a dump and it stinks all summer long so you cant use the outside grounds.

    Advice to Management

    Mid and up level manager need a clean out. I am afraid you are playing catch up and there is just too much complacency, hp, EMC and Nimble are eating your lunch.
