    Pros

    Good benefits, nice people. Good company vision.

    Cons

    management is terrible, you will be asked to do a million things with no guidance. Management needs huge overhaul.

    Advice to Management

    please hire people once you have a plan, pay them a respectful amount and what they deserve, dont try to mug off current employees.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with employees. Working from home/alternative offices can be arranged although not as freely as previous years. Salaries are above the industry standard; expectations are high without being unreasonable. Very little micro management despite clear goals/targets. Employees treated like adults, hard work is respected even if it's not recognised overtly.

    Cons

    Some recurring problems with internal processes, CRM (salesforce) has frequent issues that cause delays and frustration.
    Not a great HR/Recruitment department, internal recruitment is a struggle, while offers regularly go out to external candidates which seem to be the preference. Too many soft hires in recent years, sales floor not as dynamic as once was. Could be more gender diverse but hiring should be based on skill and experience first and foremost.

    Advice to Management

    Development of internal candidates needs improvement. External hiring needs to fit with company culture. Too many soft sales personnel.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and autonomy at times.

    Cons

    Lack diversity in gender, race & age. Middle aged, white men.
    Dying culture

    Advice to Management

    Return to the company that once put people first

    Pros

    Strong Corporate and Geo leadership, product portfolio, culture. Accelerating business model change with increased focussed on cloud, consumption, managed services. Great people and opportunities to grow with the business.

    Cons

    Still too many dinosaurs in Sunnyvale that are US centric and not connected enough with the global business. The desire to transform fast often means that speed to deliver becomes the primary focus without a full appreciation of the mid to long term needs of the business or taking full advantage of option that could deliver significantly more ROI for the business e.g. business process and systems modernisation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be more global in your outlook. Break the US-centric siloes and continue to put talent who really know the business from a global perspective in key positions.

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

    Pros

    NetApp has a lot of good people and has some unique products in the market. The work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Perpetually late to market with innovation, are rarely able to capitalise on the innovation they bring. Stuck in a cycle of selling to an ever decreasing pool of existing customers. For the past few years, they have been abandoning their reputation as 'the good guys' and not being honest to the market- 5:1 data reduction guarantee- really?

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off the worker bees and clear out middle-management- worst in the industry. There is a complete lack of accountability in this layer of the business.

    "Positive Company but disjointed"

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture is good but only if you're regularly in the office. Salary and benefits package above average.

    Cons

    Repeated "restructuring" has cut some functions down the bone and makes getting anything done challenging.
    Remote working leaves you isolated

    Advice to Management

    Do more to ensure that remote teams are allowed to meet face to face more often.

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

    Pros

    Great people, good culture, trust and flexibility. People leave and come back because of the culture. Have known plenty of sales reps and engineers who stay despite getting better offers from the competition.

    Cons

    Upper management feels increasingly disconnected from the front lines. VP levels often more interested in managing their own careers rather than doing what's best for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the conference rooms and talk to your people (and customers)
