    Pros

    Great culture, Open communication, great engineering teams

    Cons

    very rigid in adopting new technologies and growing business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We all knew that our business has been consistently beaten by public cloud vendors like Amazon. Soon, they are going to be there in the enterprise business too with their commodity eco system. We need to embrace commodity and build more products in that line before it is too late.

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

    Pros

    - Very relaxing and healthy work environment.
    - Lot of help was given by the team.
    - Team didn't differentiate between an intern and employee (i.e., I was given the same work as an employee with ample time to understand and work).
    - Great events are conducted by WPR department (min 2 a month).
    - Shuttle system is very good and even home drop cab (after 8pm).

    Cons

    - Very less personal growth (in product line)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an intern, I didn't have much interaction with HR.
