    I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are always opportunities to make a difference and make an impact. Your voice is heard and you are rewarded for hard work. Management is supportive. Provided you manage yourself, work life balance is good and there is flexibility and ownership of your own time and program

    Cons

    Very flat structure, so not much opportunity to move upward. Lack of structured personal skill development or performance improvement, you have to figure it out yourself

    I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Fresh bananas in the office

    Cons

    Very weak middle management. You won't get paid the commission you expect if you're in sales. The company fails to uphold its own code of conduct. Everything takes forever to get done, if at all. Very arrogant and ineffective management and lots of people walking around full of their own self-importance. So much so you'd think they'd just cured cancer

    Advice to Management

    Start employing management that are skilled at their job rather than people who have the right friends. Too many square pegs in round holes

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    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 for more than 9 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...

    Advice to Management

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

    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 for more than 9 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.
