    I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    NetApp has a forward plan that is communicates to it's employees. And it's actually taking the steps openly to make these changes. The new management team from the CEO down are very competent and honest about what is needed to be done and what is at stake if we are not successful in this transition. Expectations are clearly laid out for staff on what they need change and focus on for all of us to all be successful.... I feel like the changes the company has made and the future bets they are making are appropriate and will lead NetApp to still being relevant in 5 to 10 years if executed properly. The company has a different feel and some of the long timers are not supper keen on changing but in this space you now need to change or slowly die off. I think it's inspiring to see what NetApp can become in the future and the value it will deliver not only to it's customer and shareholders, but also ultimately it's employees is retains. below is a list of all the Pro's to working here. -Great people -Very good culture -Above avg compensation -Excellent work life balance -Great legacy products -Real products that work in the cloud today -Product pipeline that will keep us relevant in this changing market place -Great customers -excellent benefits -everyone has a voice

    Cons

    Changes mean lots of people that can't or wont change the way they do things and the skills sets they have will be let go. This can hurt moral for the short term. No one like to come to work and see their friends being walked out the door. New accountability mandates can lead to people feeling like the could be next to be let go. although this has stabilized quite a bit in the past year. List of Cons -Customers... are moving more and more to the cloud. traditional storage slice of the pie for NetApp to own is getting smaller. Only way to grow is to take market share faster from your competitors than then your slice of pie you compete to win shrinks. long term this is a losing proposition. -Bets on the cloud products must pay off for the company to succeed long term. -further downsizing will most likely need to happen to keep the company stock up. -Being the best company is a slowly shrinking market is not any easy pill to swallow. it's like being voted least ugly at an ugly contest. your still ugly, just not as much as the next person.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Supportive engineering environment with high quality talent.

    Cons

    Company has not kept up with the market's shift to the cloud. They are scurrying quickly to catch up but are 3-5 years behind the market. This is causing them lay off people to cover the costs of this transformation. There are way to many executive management levels adding more operating costs.

    Advice to Management

    Shed top levels of management and lower the payscales for these roles. You don't have to pay a king's ransom to get top talent in these roles. It's wasteful.
