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

    Pros

    Nice benefits if you're at Corporate in Sunnyvale.

    Cons

    If you're in sales, good times. If not, pay attention! You're getting squeezed into oblivion. HR is NOT your friend.
    NetApp culture is dead and gone.
    Senior Sales executives are making ego based IT infrastructure decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make yourselves look good. It's killing everyone else.

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

    Pros

    I worked at NetApp for 10 years. Great place to work, good middle management and excellent benefits. The vast majority of people there enjoy being there and driving the company forward. After the recent changes, I expect them to recover lost ground quickly.

    Cons

    The last CEO was too slow to make the changes required and also kept some of the wrong people at senior executive level.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on new technologies , hire wisely and keep current employees happy. Getting top college grads should remain a priority but don't overlook current and past employees that can help business grow.

    Pros

    - Friendly and knowledgeable people.
    - Flexible work timings.
    - Always helping team members and proactive managers.
    - Very organised internal workflows

    Cons

    - Legacy technologies

    Advice to Management

    - Guide them how into full time job
    - Work out budget thing in favor of intern conversion, because new grads come with dreams. Company should live up-to it.
    - Company should with experiment other engineering software/products, given the knowledge of engineering resources
