    * Company is not growing as it should do. CEO has been changed but don't see much efforts to turn it around again. * In current situation many employees are leaving the company and some of them are good employees. There are no major efforts to retain people.

    I worked at NetApp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Free beer on most Fridays, free cookies in the break rooms, a in-house gym, most teams have a good WFH policy. Central location, and a nice well maintained office buildings

    Cons

    High performing employees are no longer confident of retaining their jobs, since there is absolutely no logic when it comes to laying off people. Even employees with top 2 rating have also been laid off. Moreover, layoffs have become an annual affair now...sometimes even bi-annual. If you manage to please your US boss, you may retain your job during layoffs. Indian managers have absolutely no say....they even do not...

    Advice to Management

    RTP is not the centre of the world....and Sunnyvale cannot be your sole command centre. Decentralise where appropriate and delegate important decisions making roles to those brilliant people who are (were?) in India.

    I have been working at NetApp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Just a few weeks into my job. The Pro that I could notice that the teams have been giving a lot of attention to their work and deliverable. I have not seen a lot of chaos. Everybody seems to be sincere.

    Cons

    I observed that to keep the release dates intact employees are being asked to work over weekends. VP level seniors have asked team members to work on weekends as part of communication in all hands meeting. Program Manager has no Program Management functional team in NetApp. Everyone - Development, QA, Program Management report into Director of Engineering. In my previous companies, Project/Program managers used to have...

    Advice to Management

    Though it could be cost effective to have all functions reporting into same director level manager, it makes the organization very functional and not projectized. This prevents the project/program management function to be able to drive things more effectively.

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

    Pros

    Work place and environment is okay. Beer bash and soft drinks for free.

    Cons

    - The Bangalore center is predominantly involved in maintenance and low end QA work - The work culture resembles a IT services company than a product company - Air is thick with politics with a very thick layer of top management. - Most of the top management in India have got a level higher promotion in Netapp as compared to other organizations like Cisco, HP, EMC, Dell and others - Performance appraisals are a farce....

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

    Pros

    There are always opportunities to make a difference and make an impact. Your voice is heard and you are rewarded for hard work. Management is supportive. Provided you manage yourself, work life balance is good and there is flexibility and ownership of your own time and program

    Cons

    Very flat structure, so not much opportunity to move upward. Lack of structured personal skill development or performance improvement, you have to figure it out yourself
