In our bu the engineers in US soil got used as canon fodder to keep teams in India intact. 95% of the people laid off was in US. No points for guessing that the VP is based out of India office. Do you guys think it will be worthwhile to pursue a... — read more
The executives making the decisions on who to cut try to balance out a number of factors. Value of the role to the organization, performance, salary, length of service, team fit, risk of lawsuits based on age, DEI, etc... Some of these decisions are... — read more
I'm planning on putting my 2 weeks in. With all these layoffs that recently passed, it feels like a game of Russian Roulette and I'm not looking to play. My team is small in numbers as I am part of the mid-day shift. There are no managers on-site... — read more
Total revenue per employee for those products is way out of bounds. Direct attach E is not useful for modern workloads plus it competes with FAS for FCP workloads and StorageGrid is a me too product whose engineers have already left for companies... — read more
I am glad I was able to get rid of all the driftwood. I was brought in to clean house in the silo I manage. Too long many of you have hung around providing now value. I am working on the next cuts already have your Resumes' prepared. It is nothing... — read more
Alright, I think whoever was in charge of laying off people obviously does not know how to choose the right people. One of the FTE who was a literally Netapp library was laid off and now people don't know who to ask for help. The project managers... — read more
How many layoffs have happened under his tenure versus how many times has his compensation been modified? Being rewarded for firing people can only last so long.
Especially if you were in the RTP area, many of the “old guard” at NetApp still work there (after they acquired Nimble storage). It seems Netapp never did recover and just continued to get worse after that big split.
Our CEO addressed the employees Friday on a zoom video. His video backdrop was an empty cubicle. Brazen or clueless ?
Aging products .... No innovation for a decade .... Failure of every acquisition ..... Corporate nepotism at every level ...... No accountability .... Terrible reputation with both customers and employees. NetApp is now Sun Microsystems and headed... — read more
Having experienced layoffs in the past NetApp typically offered packages for those who voluntarily resigned before the sudden "We are eliminating your position" notices. It just proves the culture at NetApp is about taking care of the good ole boys... — read more
NetApp hasn't had leadership since Dan Warmenhoven and Tom Mendoza left, the culture has been in a downfall ever since. This is 100% true. I don't think that people who are in charge now can even be called leaders, more like destroyers of... — read more
Fail to understand why leadership supported this selection of random ppl for lay-off this time. I know a person on my team who got promoted few months back for good performance and was laid off yesterday. Can someone enlighten me how the selection... — read more
Among those who are affected, there are probably those who did not work very hard and do not have a good skillset, but my perception is that many wrong people were cut as well. Why is this happening? For some people I know, it makes no sense at all... — read more
Cote and P. Miller were shrills that GK and MB brought in because they are bu-t buddies. I am not surprised what happened nor shocked. The Rats were leaving the ship last summer after bigger rats arrived last spring. Good luck to those who got... — read more
It's been a long fall from when we were rated Best Place to Work. Kurian has destroyed what's left of that. No innovation ..... Bad acquisitions ...... Management by fear ...... Firing anyone who spoke out in a culture where that was once consider a... — read more
The next shoe to fall will be a product line. StorageGrid, legacy Engenio and other non-core non-cloud products. We wasted hundreds of millions on Solidfire. The decision makers who facilitated that acquisition should all be fired ..... Including... — read more
The following is a post seen on LinkedIn (not my words)..."Pure storage has lots of jobs posted. Feel free to ask for intros to any of my contacts. I'm sorry this happened to you."
The fanboy seems to have been silenced ..... Disparaging all the comments about layoffs as false. In fact it seems that the troll hunter may actually be a NetApp employee whose job it is to sanitize negative comments.
This is not NetApp’s only recent round of layoffs. The company in the first six months of fiscal 2022 laid off about 1 percent of its global workforce as it restructured to reduce its office space due to the large number of employees working... — read more
Be great if anyone in the US can post what their package looks like?
I think the problem with Netapp now is NOT the people who are WORKING. It is the Leadership team who is eating all the free money with nothing to offer and decides to lay off ICs for the situation they landed all in. For the decisions, they made that... — read more

I am tired of laying people off for people that are never worried about their jobs. Complete lack of personal skills at the top. They act entitled and better than everyone. So ready to leave this place, it no longer feels like a home or family. ... — read more
Judging by what people write here, there are many new hires among the impacted?
It's never a good time to be laid off, especially now. However, do not be discouraged because there are still many opportunities on the job market for those who have the skills. I recently got a new job despite people telling me that it would... — read more

Wondering whether any alt workforce got impacted?
I dont feel anger, sadness or fear - what am I going through?
Doomscrolling, here. Are those who will be impacted already scheduled for their 1:1?
NetApp is not very transparent about this. I know several people were impacted in May 2022 - yet nothing was ever announced even though more than 5% were impacted. Some companies are more thoughtful and transparent than others. NetApp really sucks at... — read more
Anybody from EMEA reading this blog?
Have impacted people been told or meeting scheduled already. Or is this happening throughout the week.
Subject says it all
8% reduction focusing in EMEA and APAC.
Yup . CEO just sent out a ‘today is the day for size reduction’ paraphrasing ofc. 8% !!! Damn.. Lunch: Classical Italian$4.59. Stay civil, and be thankful for any severance you (I) may get .
