    I have been working at NetApp

    Pros

    Flex time, great campus, great benefits, and employees are respected and valued. The Professional Services / Sales organization is challenging and has many opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    after hours and weekend work at times due to my customer's schedules. The Professional Services positions can be stressful at times and have a lot of travel depending on the time of year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees, continue to offer career advancement or horizontal moves in the company. I would like to see more stock option grants offered as incentives.

    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    NetApp was a great place to work. The senior leaders cared as much about the culture and the employees as they did about the bottom line. They made the team feel important. The facilities and resources were great.

    Cons

    Middle management got bogged down and had issues making decisions and tradeoffs. They became risk averse as well. Inefficient processes were also deployed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Skip-level management would have uncovered some issues and inefficiencies. The culture did not promote politics, but there were some mid-level politics at work.
