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

    Pros

    Your mileage will vary with the dept. Sales and Eng tended to be better than Support by far. Did have some incredible Managers still left to my surprise.

    Cons

    Lay offs have cut into the bone. The culture is dead. Its now just a company, nothing more.

    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.

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

    Pros

    I had great coworkers who would do anything for the company and other peers in the group.

    Cons

    NetApp laid of 20% of workforce in March 2016. In my Field Service group it was a 2/3 cut when they went from 48 FSE's in North America down to 14. and in November 2016 another 6% cut was made. NetApp is adopting a third party service ( and installation) partner model. New management three years ago has introduced many negative changes. No longer a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    You had a hugely loyal workforce who are now gone! Third party support engineers do not have the same sense of ownership to address customer issues.

    You need keep your technical skill, learn new skill all the time since the cloud/storage industry is keeping change.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salaries and benefits were pluses at NetApp. The work perks that were available in Wichita were also great to have. The people you work with are top notch and great to work with.

    Cons

    At this time NetApp is very unstable and the layoff fears seem to always be in the back of everyone's mind. Because of this, the competition component comes into play and people are looking out for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with your teams. The culture at NetApp Wichita has always been very good but that will change with any deceit.
