    Pros

    personable management, excellent manager. Some of the trainers were terrific. Top management - not so sure, but my Manager, Bob Degler was a straight shoot, terrific guy, total professional.

    Cons

    I can't think of any - only wish they had not eliminated my position.

    Advice to Management

    I hope the NetApps acquisition is working out for everyone.

    remember that a company is as good as its people and to be world class you need to take care of people and what motivates them. it isn't all about stock price
