Topics regarding layoffs at NetApp

You are not safe

This place is looking to cut costs further. That's the only thing this management knows how to do. If you are among those who are high earners, consider yourself as good as gone. Their goal is to replace everybody with people who cost less no matter... —  read more 

Compelling Event

So I heard there is a "compelling event" happening at NetApp. Not sure if this means they will finally be acquired or some other big thing. Any news from inside the puzzle palace?

No layoffs at NetApp

The moderators of this board repeatedly take down news of no layoffs. This will probably be taken down too. A reminder that The Layoff is not a source of reliable information, it's a source for stirring junk.

Good luck

Good luck to the people on this board with a target on their back who don't know it yet. Of course that excludes GK and staff as well as other teflon RDs who ride on your backs.

RIP HCI. StorageGrid is next.

Just another in the long line of failed acquisitions. NetApp is a hamster wheel of failure. The rest of the world has moved on. Only teflon NetApp executives remain. Take a look around and realize how many employees do absolutely nothing.

Now to jettison the albatross

That's some pretty pricy real estate they got saddled with in the SolidFire acquisition. Especially when you lay off a ton of people, and the rest are working from home. Maybe they can get the old Airport Rd building back?

What's the point?

I have seen so many posts blaming one or the other people for layoffs, I have been in the industry long enough to experience layoffs/startup shutdowns. End of the day, it leaves terrible, longlasting taste looking back to blame someone. My 2 cents... —  read more
