      Pros

      work life balance, amazing people, interesting work

      Cons

      limited $ and resources in engineering. Most employee's mentality is to just go to work as a job, and take advantage of the strong work life balance and benefits. There's no incentive to take ownership and do more because pay is much lower (very little equity is given) compared to other tech companies and vertical movement is very slow progress. Ramp up speed is also very slow. Every transfer of knowledge is done by word of mouth rather than written documentation. If there is documentation, it's very outdated. Ramp up should not be so painful. When a senior engineer leaves, the knowledge/expertise is lost.

      Very Mixed Experience Depending on Group

      Jan 24, 2019 - Director in Sunnyvale, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Compensation and benefits are good. Lots of work flexibility in terms of work from home or office and when you come-and-go. Pockets of genuinely nice- and smart people but, alas, that population seems to be declining.

      Cons

      I was there for a number of years and company has become much more political over that time. Senior executives very much focused on their BU fiefdoms and careers more than helping NetApp succeed as a whole. Culture of inclusive-, consensus management has degraded into something worthless: lots of discussion and passive-aggressive behavior with slow- or timid decision-making. Company can't seem to place bold bets to pivot away from competency selling on-premises hardware systems. Admittedly executing very well in that space but, alas, that's ultimately a declining market. Work/life balance is great in some groups but terrible in others. Some groups require weekly- or even daily interaction between the U.S. and India that can be very painful both from a work/life balance perspective and work productivity perspective.

      It used to be best company to work for in 2009 for a good reason! Culture, top leadership, employee focus.

      Pros

      I believe this company may still have some good DNA. It is hard to believe that such a great place to work can change so drastically. I believe it will recover again to an acceptable level where employees can recover trust and loyalty. Not everything is about the bottom line.

      Cons

      No work life balance, no job stability, no promotions, no consideration for the employees been laid off from the US. The company is shifting most of the work and with this the opportunities outside the US. It is a great opportunity for the Bangalore employees to prove themselves!

      Pros

      Work life balance can be good depending on position. Benefits and pay are typically good for the area.

      Cons

      Company going through growing pains and a flat market. Recent transformation initiatives have negatively effected the work life balance as the company tries to do more with less.
