Excellent company run by poor management.
Certified Professional Services Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 7, 2016
Netapp offers top of the line training, compensation, benefits and excellent career opportunity. All at the cost of job security and poor management. During my career with Netapp in the NYC office, I witnessed even the most senior management get let go on multiple occasions. To be replaced with inexperienced "suck ups", who as a consequence of their inability to lead and maintain customer relations, cost the company billions in lost contracts as well as countless hardworking employees underneath them without work. Nothing about Netapp spoke to me as a team effort. As my time with them was plagued with toxic co-workers, politically unacceptable behavior(college level antics/drinking) and overall lacking in human resources(NYC office didn't even have HR). Which in itself reflects the negatives of the business world. Office Politics aside, I love the company's technology, architects and core engineers who were with me in the field and classroom supporting each other every step of the way. But back in that office, it felt like a literal shark tank. Sink or swim is no way to run a Fortune 500 company.
