I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

An average sized biweekly paycheck. There is nothing else tolerable about this company. This place sucks.

Cons

Idiotic management in many departments. This company is truly a sinking ship. All the smart people have either left or are currently looking to flee.

Advice to Management

Fire incompetent employees. Stop coddling them and throw them out the door.

    I worked at NetApp as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and peers are pretty open and willing to train. Pay is comparable with other companies.

    Cons

    Management contradicts itself constantly. The push is for innovation, but seems only innovation ideas that really get pushed to the surface are those of the leadership. Too many management levels and not enough employees actually doing the job. Budget cuts are a constant and put more work load and pressure on those remaining making it very difficult to reach and maintain goals.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees in the tenches. it's great to have the high level view, but sometimes you need to understand what is really going on.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance
    Great set of people to work with
    Hands off management, just get your work done.
    Great start for a career

    Cons

    Too much importance for artificial stuff like great places to work rankings etc which are no good except for marketing
    Not too great set of perks, they cut back on lot of good stuff like weekly beer bashes
    Too much focus on ONTAP ignoring other BU's and technologies like flash drives. (Almost cult Like) although this is changing very slowly
    Not much growth once inside the company compensation or otherwise

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on products other than ONTAP. Stop doing 2 releases of products and scrapping them to starting all over again

    Also senior management (VP, Sr directors etc)needs to be held accountable for decisions, fire them if they made bad decisions instead of folks under them.
