Better years as an employee in the past
Sr. Manager, Continuous Improvement (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – August 5, 2018
When NetApp's stock floundered, and they fell off the Forbes "Best Places to Work" list, they seemed to lose interest in employee happiness, and instead focused on stock owners. They started to value money over employee satisfaction, and the switching of management over and over for a bit didn't help.
Good managers are hard to find in any company, and I had more bad managers than good, eager to climb the ladder, sometimes on the backs of their employees. Decisions were often changed when the focus of the company changed courses, and because of that, good work went by the wayside with the next leader.
I did learn some good skills with some leaders, and while not my own boss, they were quite helpful in mentorship. I also worked with a great group of people, most of whom have since moved on.
