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

    Pros

    Culture, culture, culture. The best company culture I've experienced over a 20 year career thus far. Everyone from field sales to product engineering was willing and able to work together to help customers succeed.

    Cons

    There are always bad apples to contend with and I certainly ran across a few at NetApp. Those folks stand out in a bad way pretty quickly and the company was sometimes a bit slow to deal with the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the culture. It's what makes the company special.

    Pros

    Co workers smart and nice. Great benefits like ESPP, RSU and yearly bonuses. Nice technologies to learn. Yearly bonus is not great.

    Cons

    Some teams are Management driven. Development methodologies are good but not up to the mark. Not many big data technologies in use.

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

    Pros

    Some of the best and smartest technical people I've ever worked with. Great technology. Awesome focus on the community around us. Excellent benefits.

    Well positioned with strong "Data Fabric" story that resonates with companies moving from dedicated data centers to the cloud. NetApp technologies are enabling companies to access and protect their storage where it is most cost effective.

    The work they have done to get SAN enterprise ready and to fold flash into the ONTAP offering has breathed new life into their strategy and they are winning.

    Cons

    Storage market is becoming commodity and differentiation more challenging. Company leadership is having to make tough calls to right-size investments for the market - but those decisions are being made and the company continues to deliver on their performance.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are the real difference makers. Don't get to focused on the street that you lose your mojo.
