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

Pros

Great people and opportunities. Great leadership provided by Senior Engineers. The pay is competitive and the benefits are good. Many good people have been attracted to NetApp, because of the "Great Places to Work" ratings.

Cons

Culture is being eroded by politics and layers of less than effective directors and VPs. Most of the good technical directors have left the company leaving behind technical leaders who are more political motivated than technically savvy.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I have the privilege with working with some of the most talented individuals in the industry, given the challenging changing environment that we are in, migrating to the cloud. Pay and benefits are on par with the best in the industry.

    Cons

    In HW engineering, lack of the ability to advance. Company develops experts of certain portions of the position skill sets, and were not always able to fully utilize individual skill sets.

    Advice to Management

    Consider development of management from within, rather than development of management from external sources.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at NetApp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Staff level and people at or Director level are good. TD's are very good but stuck at the spindle level.

    Cons

    VP level and above is more of a club. People that do not deserve the position are there. RTP is a joke run by people who in other companies would be glorified SE's.

    Advice to Management

    Throw out the bums and ask Hitz to lead engg. again.
