    Horrible company to work for as a woman unless you like wearing a short skirt or working 24/7. Zero work/life balance.

    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than a year

    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 If there is documentation, it's very outdated.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"

    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
