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

    Pros

    I worked at NetApp for 10 years. Great place to work, good middle management and excellent benefits. The vast majority of people there enjoy being there and driving the company forward. After the recent changes, I expect them to recover lost ground quickly.

    Cons

    The last CEO was too slow to make the changes required and also kept some of the wrong people at senior executive level.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on new technologies , hire wisely and keep current employees happy. Getting top college grads should remain a priority but don't overlook current and past employees that can help business grow.

    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.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Great people to work with and the owners were very hands on and loved the staff.

    Continue to let the staff feel valued and heard. Get support for customers and continue to be a solid partner to the manufactures.
