    I worked at NetApp for less than a year

    Pros

    Offers plenty of room to grow your skills, not restricted. As an intern you take as advanced a level of work as you want, or that you think you can handle. Kept me on as part time following the conclusion of my internship.

    Cons

    Rounds of layoffs not uncommon.

    Advice to Management

    "Lower level" managers very understanding. They are the ones responsible for NetApp's consistently high ranking in "Top Places to Work". Keep up the good work!

    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment and forward thinking product and service suite. Compensation is fair and benefit coverage is average.

    Cons

    C level is great....the levels below there need to stop building their own empires at the expense of the company and the resources they're losing.

    Advice to Management

    Get all the oars rowing in the same direction and stop the empire building from within. You've got something great, don't waste it!

    I worked at NetApp for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of benefits and perks from working at NetApp. Great working environment with a focus on innovation, the latest trends and teams are generally tightly knit. Skills are easily transferrable to new jobs as well.

    Cons

    I feel that there can be a disconnect from upper management sometimes, working with offshore teams can be difficult. However management often tries their best to mitigate these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Local management does a great job at keeping teams tight knit, and allowing staff to perform tasks to the best of their abilities.
