    I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than an 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

    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely fun place to work.
    The culture allows for hard work, performance and matching rewards.
    Ethics and values are core and people are respected for who they are.
    It is like a global village, a melting pot for humanity and an opportunity to work with awesome colleagues and mentors :)

    Cons

    Business limited due by the limited product line offerings for the Indian market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rocking and creating extraordinary careers .....
    And create some mid sized products for India as a developing market.

    Pros

    Communication with management is clear, empathetic and regular.
    Compensation is high.

    Some older methodologies around benefits / compensation and motivational methods warrant updating.

    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    Nice work atmosphere, employees and managers are really cool. You might end up having to be a workaholic depending on the team.

    Cons

    Not sure how the company's long term path might fit your careers goals, especially if you are starting as an NCG at NetApp. They do not have too many new projects, so you will end up fixing a lot of Bugs along with a few features. Most of the code has already been developed.

    Pros

    I am working in netapp for more than 5 years. This is an ideal place to work for with lots of opputunities and new learning. It has great culture and you will one has the full responsibility of his/her job and freedom of doing his own way.

    Cons

    I have not found as such, but now a days they are cutting some of the benefits of the employees which they were providing early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should hear and resolve the employee concerns more..
