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

    I worked at NetApp for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Free breakfast on Friday and that is all.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Have respect for employees with responsibilities outside of work. Not every employee is single. Promote from within, especially when employees want to grow with the company.
