    I have been working at NetApp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Good atmosphere
    - NetApp had a few bad years, but are now leading in technology
    - Best quality products and service
    - Very professional work force
    - Speed of acting is high
    - Flexible working hours
    - Best colleagues I ever had
    - CEO is a very humble man that knows tech and how to develop the company into an innovative one

    Cons

    Could be a bit more informal internally with more trendy offices with some extra perks to connect people with each other. I also think that NetApp should give people more freedom on working remote.

    Advice to Management

    Make the offices more agile and trendy, offer perks like sport activities, free lunch, more Friday drinks, organized events, fun stuff in the office. But then again NetApp pays extremely well and is good for your career.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you get with the right team the atmosphere is great!

    Cons

    Lot's of reorganization, layoffs 1-2x per year, bad leadership at multiple levels, still an "old boy network".

    Advice to Management

    Hire people managers who care about people and their careers. The focus is on only "technical people" and the hiring is missing people with people skills, communication skills, and true qualifications.

    Pros

    Just great people and products. Everyone goes above and beyond to help each other like nothing I have seen at any other company.

    Cons

    None really great pay and even better people. I think they could do a better job marketing. That the only think that was really annoying.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Good work environment (in Boulder).

    Cons

    Politics are creeping into the Boulder office. Annual review structure is archaic. Upper management is more concerned with shareholders' interests than employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep politics out. And find a way to advance people faster.

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Good Work Life Balance
    Competitive Compensation Package

    Cons

    OCI Quality Management lacks technical expertise and direction.
    Women management walks around, talks, and flirts most of the day
    Management dislikes promoting people so little room for growth and development

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. When multiple employees complain about a manager, do something. Change is good. Management must change from time to time if they lack the technical expertise and direction.
