    Pros

    Great culture, wonderful people, full gym at Sunnyvale campus and interesting work

    Cons

    No company is perfect and there will always be personalities that you don't connect with but with that said, NetApp doesn't have many black marks in my book.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating to employees and keep employees involved and excited

    Pros

    Overall great culture. People generally want to do the right things. People, Profit, Planet, etc. People generally treat others well. Depending on which department you are in, there are some that are more driven than others.

    Cons

    Recently in 2015 onward, there has been a relentless cost cutting effort. They may be overlooking key strategies and initiatives because of the focus on margin and cost control.

    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.
