Confirmed today that another small round is coming in April, end of fiscal year. Good luck my colleagues.

Topics regarding layoffs at NetApp
About a week ago we laid off 7 people in Bellevue office and 1 in RTP . This makes no sense but then it just reminds me for all gun-ho and clapping internal in all-hands this is just a paycheck, they do not actually care for me, and earn it bank it... read more
Anybody else nervous by the relatively small size of the latest layoff round? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad it wasn't as bad as a lot of us have feared, but frankly, I'm worried that this might have been just the beginning and that more will come next... read more
The cuts seemed to be very targeted though. I know someone who's director was cut and it sounds like a few engineers. Haven't heard total numbers though.
I wonder what "small" severance charge means? Much smaller layoff (than in recent past) maybe?
I am fairly certain that layoffs are coming in the new year - either Jan or Feb. Announcement before the Q3 results announcement to get a lift-off.
Rumors are that key management talent at Dell storage at Bangalore will be nuked soon. These are ex Netapp superheroes. Maybe Netapp can hire them back.. If that happens Dell team will be humbled.

Is it true they will do layoffs in November? Again? I heard this from three different people (engineers - no managers or up)... What do you think?
Guys, this is a DYING company, please open the window and take a look at the vivid outside world! An entry level engineer is paid WAY much more than a senior here. Grandfather technology, infamous management team, non-programing tech lead, if you... read more
Agree that this rumor surfaces pretty much every year. Given NetApp's current market cap of 11.5 B it would be by far the largest acquisition in the history of Cisco. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_acquisitions_by_Cisco_Systems Very unlikely... read more
Heard it''s a real party over there. Beer on tap, all their managers WFH, no real accountability. Have they done any thing for NetApp?
For all of you who are predicting doom and gloom: Gartner has recognized NetApp as a Leader in solid-state arrays for the second year in a row. Read the Gartner Magic Quadrant report and learn about: Gartner's evaluation of each vendor and their... read more
I am sure there are layoffs going but they are small so it doesn't meet the bar where there has to be a email from the top. Also I am sure who ever posted the layoffs for the 5th and now the 13th will post a new one for the 20th. So take these with a... read more
It's happening again. Say goodbye. These are occuring the day before yearend commission compensation announcements. I say bring it.
My manager and I discussed merit increase but there is complete silence on ICP. Has it been paid out? When will it be paid ?
While its not AMD or Nvidia (or maybe even Oracle), the company is on a positive track. Haters might as well start digging their own grave since they can't move on with reality. The latest rounds of cuts did great things for the company and while... read more
If revenue meets goals, no layoffs, if there is a miss. Because revenue is lagging a little I guarantee execs will be getting wacked. I guarantee people like Roger Anderson and some of the other legacy VPs will be gone by the end of the summer, if... read more
What do you guys think - when will be the next big round of layoffs? I know, it's all rumors now, just polling what folks think.
Coming here to discuss layoff rumors makes sense. Coming here to bloviate on a company being a leader in storage in a world of cloud or full vendor solutions is pointless. Storage is a commodity technology now. It will not solve a companies business... read more
Pure Storage works to dumb down storage and make it like Apple. It's basic and lacks a lot of features. Part of performance is due to it not having those features but as it grows over time it will then become bogged down with the rest of them... read more
If you didn't walk away from SKO convinced in NetApp you should just quit now. Best portfolio in the market, and excellent Leadership. The rest of the market is a joke right now, so if you aren't convinced you can make a killing selling NetApp, you... read more
Both frontline sales and managers have been given 60 days to find a new position within the company or receive severance pay equal to 1-month salary for every year of employment. I smell another failed acquisition by NetApp. The sad thing is that... read more
several people affected in Dave Masons Group
That's why I got out back then. As they approached critical mass with Indian "know-it-alls" drinking their own cool-aid, there was only 1 way for it to go. Technical model was unsustainable, impact of flash was ignored. Top guys were draining the... read more
Hello All. I’d like to meet you and see if NetApp SolidFire may be able to assist down the line with any of your projects or priorities from a storage perspective. How does your availability look for an introduction and overview of the SolidFire... read more
NetApp #1 Flash Provider in the world.
There is quite a bit of talk now about a May 17 date. Is anyone else hearing the same date?
I don't know why, it's a total crap company and product. Heard from multiple sources since the NIMBLE sale, Pure is going for pennies on the dollar and NTAP is putting them out of their misery.
In a last ditch effort, my former manager and his boss (director) have taken "transformation" positions. Meanwhile my team now has a real, hands-on, well-respected manager. My former manager was a real slime-bucket..took credit for all the good... read more
btw, NetApp announces companywide layoffs, RTP impact unclear: http://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2016/11/04/netapp-announces-companywide-layoffs-rtp-impact.html
It's on in RTP. All conf rooms are booked with signs on the doors. Good luck all.
Looks like OCI is the first in the mey-lay
Rah rah - empty. Thoughts?
