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

    Pros

    While making long term investments in technology that already passed them by, they took a big slide in the wrong direction. Any other company would've sunk OR been acquired but not NetApp! They changed their strategic direction by working out those that were stuck in the past, knew that making small strategic investments in existing 'hot tech' AND building new and existing partnerships with ALL the major players across HCI, Cloud and any complimentary tech, would be a catalyst for change.

    Change resulted in new and continued Pros, like:
    Catapulted stock price
    Dividends
    Most competitive ESPP program in Tech world
    Realistic forecasting that drove the street to believe we can deliver
    ICP over 100% (with competitors getting little to NO bonuses in this macro environment)
    Continual work/life balance that in unsurpased
    Job satisfaction
    Stability
    Empowerment of employees in all functions at all levels
    The belief that the turnaround is just the beginning of unlimited potential

    Cons

    As all companies that go through a macro change:
    There will be some 'bad hires' in upper and lower management but again, everything is relative at a company of this size and our cultural has historically and continually worked out the bad seed.

    People that become complacent and scorned about being required to be more efficient with less resources. Again, part of the growing process.

    Risks that don't always pay off.

    People impact (RIF, Layoffs or whatever you like to call it). When the previous regime over-invests in the wrong direction, everyone pays for it. New leadership had no choice but to right the ship, reduce cost and increase efficiency. What we've been great at is our diligence to get great people back and forge ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but with continued emphasis on our core values and key differentiators that set us apart in the eyes of customers and employees alike for over 25 yrs and counting!
