    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are very focused on success, success is very well congratulated.
    No deal is off the table if you can sell the idea of it, you are left to drive your own business.

    Cons

    A little ambiguous in the way you need to run your own show. Management are very focused on forward looking and ensuring that numbers are met which is fair enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more matrix management to ensure that communication flows are a little more pronounced so as to remove ambiguity.

    Communication with management is clear, empathetic and regular.

    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.
