Company has great products and is well positioned, but has become political bureaucracy

Pros

Good to great people to work with, good pay and benefits, great products that meet customer needs, company is well positioned in the storage market, strong executive team.

Cons

Many long time NetApp people, therefore company suffers from lack of mid-level managerial talent and competence. Certain groups (Marketing, Professional Services, Management Software Product Group) are disorganized and dysfunctional. Many mid-level managers and some VPs better at managing up and managing their own positions then managing their own team and growing their people. Inability to set measurable goals and assess performance leads to "focal review by popularity."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have the mid-level managers, Directors, and VPs practice (and actually be measured on) what HR preaches around people development. Build a focal review program that is based on measurable impact - not politics.

    Pros

    The work culture is great. There is open communication at NetApp. I felt proud working for NetApp. I am looking forward to an opportunity to continue to work with NetApp once after my MBA studies. Core Values and Principles are emphasized really well.

    Cons

    The support staff at NetApp needs to be more polite and less arrogant. Its a great place to work and need to concentrate to become #1 storage solutions vendor in the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is a very great place to work, with open communication and good work culture. NetApp needs to maintain the same momentum without overweighing the already achieved success
