    I worked at NetApp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture, culture, culture. The best company culture I've experienced over a 20 year career thus far. Everyone from field sales to product engineering was willing and able to work together to help customers succeed.

    Cons

    There are always bad apples to contend with and I certainly ran across a few at NetApp. Those folks stand out in a bad way pretty quickly and the company was sometimes a bit slow to deal with the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the culture. It's what makes the company special.

    Pros

    Interesting work.
    Great benefits and perks

    Cons

    Seems like the stock price is more important than the technology, which prompts layoffs often.

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

    Pros

    Broad and flexible solution stack to implement storage "your way" for private, public, and cloud. Strong Industry Alliances and Partnerships. Great culture. Well positioned to adapt and grow in the market.

    Cons

    For some some job functions, there is a lack of structured pathways for internal career advancement or diversification. Without that structure, an employee could be blind to new opportunities that could perfectly match their strengths. One the same token, a hiring team may be blind to the best available internal talent.
