    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 have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    NetApp has a great name, and good work/life balance. Vacation time is not bad too.

    Cons

    OCI quality management process is slow, and the tools used are outdated. Too much time is spent educating the manager as she lacks technical skills and always relies on someone to cover her up and do the work. Promotions these days are rare, and when a promotion happens, they are given to those that do not really deserve it. They are normally the people that kiss up to management. Culture has deteriorated greatly, and those that are able to probably already left. Those that are remaining are there only for certain reasons. Such an unprofessional work environment OCI has transformed into.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than seek an Engineer that has certain skills, seek a manager that has those skills and one which can train the engineer. That is a true leader. A manager that is lacking in technical skills or delegates all work slows the organization down. This will lead to a disaster in the long run.

    Pros

    Has some of the best mentors for the internship. Given ownership of a project, and guided me to complete it.

    Cons

    Nothing as such. Sometimes they expect us to be proactive, if not, you cannot do well.
