    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.

    I worked at NetApp as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very laid back company culture. Plenty of opportunities for interns to shine. Supportive environment. The work-life balance as I saw among the full time employees(I was an intern) is excellent. Right company for those of you who just want to settle down and do your job without much fuss or excitement.

    Cons

    You have to take initiative on your own to ask for work to do. It is not a very competitive culture.

    Pros

    You will succeed if you want to, plenty of career growth and opportunity. Work/Life balance works really well for me. Great work environment and facilities

    Cons

    Some in position are there because of the quick growth, not because of they are deserving.
    To much meeting and not enough doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, if you are not going to listen don't ask the questions and push everyone to answer.

    Current Employee - Member Technical Staff, Software in Pittsburgh, PA (US)

    I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a small site (Pittsburgh) within the company. Great work culture compared to other larger sites.
    You have to put in a lot of work to get recognized and move up the ladder. Good work is definitely recognized.
    The engineers will have the option to stay on the technical side as they grow up the ladder.

    Cons

    A lot of process hampers engineering efforts, especially around QA. A lot of engineers working on one product slows things down (especially around code line management).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove unnecessary process.

    Pros

    Great company with an open an collaborative culture. No inhibitions in talking to executives. Company offers decent benefits in stocks, salaries, health care and 401K.
    Work life balance is great as you can be flexible with work hours.

    Cons

    Doesn't have the same growth and success as it had a few years ago. Slowing down is affecting bonus and comp raises.
