Has been going downhill
Manager (Former Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCNovember 14, 2017
A good work culture but they have too many layoffs. They do have a lot of training courses and as such it is a good place to learn. It is probably not good for a long term position. They tend to lay off their best people and are then surprised at the results.
Pros
beer Fridays, training
Cons
too many layoffs

I would go back to Netapp without question.

Nice place to work
Senior Support Readiness Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CANovember 7, 2017
I was at NetApp for 10 years, the best times work and professionally
I was part of a great team. Unfortunately, mistakes at the executive level hurt growth and the culture starting in 2011-12 and the company had a downturn with yearly layoffs and product lines dropped or companies acquired without clear reasons.
Pros
Great Culture at it's peak, excellent benefits and compensation
Cons
Poor leadership starting in 2011-2012, slowed growth

Consistent and Well Run Company
CONTRACTOR (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CANovember 5, 2017
Solid company with very bright and talented people. Company is innovative, and seems to be well-positioned for future. Culture is a little dull, and not much youth at the company. Not much room for people will limited experience.
Pros
Gym, cafe, nice area of sunnyvale

Does not provide competitive salary to QA
Senior Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CANovember 1, 2017
As being part of QA team, a typical day would be testing and learning something new in the multiple projects you are involved in. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting hands on with the equipment which releases the pressure that was built up.

A day on the job
Digital Design Mgr (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAOctober 30, 2017
Flexible work schedule, with work-from-home option, makes getting the work completed around personal schedules. Cutting budgets also cuts out training and travel. Good company to work for and some great people to work with.
Pros
modern workspace, nutritious and wide variety of food in the cafeteria, insight gym for employees, good benefits
Cons
unreasonable workload and deadlines

great culture with uncertain future
Support Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAOctober 3, 2017

Pros
great benefits, reasonable policies, friendly and helpful employees
Cons
market uncertainty

A company bouncing back
Consultant - Lead Developer (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCSeptember 18, 2017
NetApp's atmosphere is great, it's processes mostly have it's stuff together, and the people are mostly excellent. They fell on some hard times in the early 2010s, but they're recovering. They aren't as awesome as they were in their hay day, but they are still in the top 100 places to work in the nation.
Pros
telecommuting, good pay, laid back atmosphere
Cons
slow advancement, giant company bureaucracy

Remote worker
Professional Services Consultant (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WISeptember 15, 2017
I worked remote for all of my 17+ years at NetApp. It was a great place to work, with a positive work/life balance. Working remote as a contract was a great oppotunity, and previously as a field enginner, it provided exposure to many differe customers and environments.

Was once a great place to work

Unfortunately, the storage industry is being commoditized and thus it is very hard to maintain a competitive advantage. NetApp will need to figure out how to differentiate using software.
Pros
Transparent management, nice offices
Cons
products are not competitive anymore

Stressful work
Member of Technical Staff, Development (Current Employee) –  Waltham, MASeptember 3, 2017
Some of products working style could be fast paced due to the market demands, and being virtual storage team, once needs to be pretty quick in turning over features.

Difficult life...
Technical Program Manager (Former Employee) –  RTP, NCAugust 10, 2017
Support Account Managers have it hard here. 24/7 for large install bases. Bad work life balance. Weekend and weekday nights are not you own. Even to take you child to soccer practice you have to have coverage and arrange it in advance.
Pros
Interesting technologies
Cons
Pay, work life balance.

Great growth and opportunity
Management (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAAugust 8, 2017
NetApp has a bright future. It is difficult though to work outside of the corporate hdqtr environment.
I liked the original team I came in under. it changed a lot over the years with Cloud coming into play. The Cloud efforts were tough to discuss but it is getting much better. I think it is going to be a leader in the industry.
Pros
Team dynamics, opportunity
Cons
tight budgets, scrutinizing every little action vs. the bigger picture was demeaning.
