    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are good. Lots of work flexibility in terms of work from home or office and when you come-and-go. Pockets of genuinely nice- and smart people but, alas, that population seems to be declining.

    Cons

    I was there for a number of years and company has become much more political over that time. Senior executives very much focused on their BU fiefdoms and careers more than helping NetApp succeed as a whole. Culture of inclusive-, consensus management has degraded into something worthless: lots of discussion and passive-aggressive behavior with slow- or timid decision-making. Company can't seem to place bold bets to pivot away from competency selling on-premises hardware systems. Admittedly executing very well in that space but, alas, that's ultimately a declining market. Work/life balance is great in some groups but terrible in others. Some groups require weekly- or even daily interaction between the U.S. and India that can be very painful both from a work/life balance perspective and work productivity perspective.

    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I believe this company may still have some good DNA. It is hard to believe that such a great place to work can change so drastically. I believe it will recover again to an acceptable level where employees can recover trust and loyalty. Not everything is about the bottom line.

    Cons

    No work life balance, no job stability, no promotions, no consideration for the employees been laid off from the US. The company is shifting most of the work and with this the opportunities outside the US. It is a great opportunity for the Bangalore employees to prove themselves!

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

    Pros

    Great culture & environment to work, initiative to work and carry out projects, top level management is great, great clarity and communication between senior managements and employees, employee friendly and great place to work at.

    Cons

    Support is rotational shift and often hampers work-life balance, Mid level managers have issues of favouritism, line of work progress is sometimes ambiguous, strictly process oriented and hampers self initiative and new ideas sometimes.
