    I have been working at NetApp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salaries and comp plans; great facilities at HQ in Sunnyvale; some of the leadership team was very inspiring; good community give back program

    Cons

    Too big to get things done quickly enough; no direction from leadership; no leadership growth opportunities unless at HQ; company does not treat people fairly; lots of people ready to throw you under the bus at any opportunity; it was all about status reports and updating the latest version for your boss' boss; compensation adjustments were vastly different by VP

    Pros

    Has great work culture. You have flexible timings and everyone is very accessible.
