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

    Pros

    Broad and flexible solution stack to implement storage "your way" for private, public, and cloud. Strong Industry Alliances and Partnerships. Great culture. Well positioned to adapt and grow in the market.

    Cons

    For some some job functions, there is a lack of structured pathways for internal career advancement or diversification. Without that structure, an employee could be blind to new opportunities that could perfectly match their strengths. One the same token, a hiring team may be blind to the best available internal talent.

    Pros

    Interesting work.
    Great benefits and perks

    Seems like the stock price is more important than the technology, which prompts layoffs often.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not super stressful. Decent perks - on-site cafeteria, gym, etc. I think the CEO is doing an ok job - he is committed, passionate, and holds himself accountable. I just don't think there is much he can do to steer this ship around.

    Cons

    Not the top tier of people. A lot of top talent has left. It's a shrinking market so there's only so much NetApp can do. If you are near the end of your career, it might be ok to stick it out there, but otherwise, not a good place to develop your career.

    Not as much flexibility as I would have liked.

    Advice to Management

    Laser focus on just a couple things. Even now, the portfolio is still too big. Cut your losses and just do a small number of things.
