    Pros

    Strategy alignment
    Collaborative and engaged culture, great place to work isn't a PR message
    Great portfolio
    Strong customer focus

    Cons

    Still in major transformation, significant executive changes ... must keep focus on culture and employee engagement / retention

    Pros

    Once again becoming a fun and exciting place to work. Innovation and hope has returned

    Cons

    Growth will be slow, so expenses have to be kept in check more than before

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

    Pros

    The benefits are competitive and the salary was good. The people were for the most part great to work with. Culture and values historically were good but have taken a beating in the last couple of years. There was an upper management effort to turn this around but I am not sure how successful it is being.

    Cons

    As the company struggled the atmosphere took on a very political tone. At the middle management level the focus became much more short term at the expense of long term prosperity. Upper management seems to have a long term plan but communications seemed to stop at middle management creating a lot of uncertainty for the workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind the long term value of a positive environment and culture to the ultimate success of the company and work to keep the politics out of the middle management

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good benefits, some really nice people. Easy to park, good cafeteria. Some buildings are being brought to
    Modern days. Free coffee.

    Cons

    Continued revolving door of VPs and executives is a non-stop. Tight circles at the top of people who don't agree. Lack of enterprise operations models. Innovation is completely slow and un-funded.

    Pros

    Nice benefits if you're at Corporate in Sunnyvale.

    Cons

    If you're in sales, good times. If not, pay attention! You're getting squeezed into oblivion. HR is NOT your friend.
    NetApp culture is dead and gone.
    Senior Sales executives are making ego based IT infrastructure decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make yourselves look good. It's killing everyone else.

    Pros

    I believe this company may still have some good DNA. It is hard to believe that such a great place to work can change so drastically.
    I believe it will recover again to an acceptable level where employees can recover trust and loyalty. Not everything is about the bottom line.

    Cons

    No work life balance, no job stability, no promotions, no consideration for the employees been laid off from the US. The company is shifting most of the work and with this the opportunities outside the US. It is a great opportunity for the Bangalore employees to prove themselves!

    Advice to Management

    Karma comes with action and not with words! People work for people.
