    Disappointing career at NetApp - thought it was going to be a long term place of growth

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)

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

    ConsToo 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Still a great company to work for, but was better

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay, great people, freedom to "get the job done" your way, ability to work from home, great products

    ConsCompany is getting bigger and culture is suffering a bit. Still better than any company I have worked for, but there has been a definite change in the past 4-5 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHopefully they will do a better job of reacting to industry and economic trends and avoid any further layoffs. Mass layoffs are NOT good for company moral!
