With rising interest rates and everyone's spending dwindling, I can only see everything going down from here on. Fed doesn't have any other way to combat inflation, they will have to raise interest rates, in which case, companies like Google, Amazon... — read more
If you think your job can't be offshored, think again! You are too expensive. Unless you're willing to work for pennies, they don't want you. It's as simple as that.
I got an offer after only a month of looking for a new job. To be fair, not all things are ideal here, but it is possible to grow a skillset and gain solid technical knowledge, and then it is easier to find a better opportunity. Are you satisfied... — read more
I mean it seriously. All the skills you can get here you will get in one year, and if you decide to stay longer, you will just be wasting you time. At least that's the case with me and I'm terribly sorry I didn't leave much earlier. Maybe there are... — read more
Most companies are worried about the great resignation and frantically looking for ways to keep the best talent but not us. Nope. This leadership is overjoyed that people are leaving and not forcing them to pay them severance. This works perfectly... — read more
I hear a lot of rumors about layoffs, but I still don’t know anyone who was laid off. Have the cuts already started? Who is the target? How big will the layoffs be? Please spill the beans. I am more anxious than ever because getting cut is the... — read more
Layoffs happening soon in cloud insights division
I left a little over a year ago for lower pay. I already managed to make up for a difference thanks to a recent increase and bonus. To say leaving paid off would be an understatement. I'm happy and enjoy my work once again. I know it may seem scary... — read more
It's not worth it anymore. Why even pretend to care anymore when our hard work is rewarded by low pay, no advancement, and no raises (except for the select few, apparently.) There are plenty of companies out there that still value their employees... — read more
Just stopped by this forum to see what's happening in this company, which I left exactly a year ago. I'm just wondering if anything has changed for the better or do good employees still have to listen to what mediocrities say? I left because of... — read more
word has it Netapp is giving select employees raises starting next paycheck. My guess is that they are trying to stem the tide of attrition; maybe they are starting with those underpaid? other criteria? anyways money is a nice gesture, but not a... — read more
It's going to be interesting to see what is said in the global all hands this week considering that the federal contractor mandate is now blocked. Will NetApp push the mandate still or suspend until the matter is resolved in the courts.
What have I gotten myself into? Meetings never end, only a few people are allowed to be funny ( or crack jokes ) in meetings, only a few people are allowed to talk at length in these so-called meetings. Articulate colleagues are mostly mute, maybe... — read more
Leveraging COVID and vaccinations to avoid overt layoffs. Quite sneaky. Have all the executives and board members been vaccinated? How about if you refuse to visit a customer who can't prove that all their employees have been?
I'm looking forward to layoffs. At this point, I'd rather be laid off than stay in this toxic dump. If there's a way, I'll even volunteer.
If only the deadlines for which I am expected to complete the work were so relaxed. They know how to appreciate only themselves and their time. The fact that I still don't know whether my exemption will be approved or not and that I'm worried... — read more
Any sense on how many positions will be affected by the Dec 1 HR actions?
King Kurian only cares about the stock price. That translates into more cost cuts and layoffs. Transition off of hardware will result in a company 1/4 the size. Storage Grid will be the first to go since cloud native S3 is a cheaper and more cloud... — read more

You think you're safe? Don't be ridiculous! For as long as there's somebody who'd be willing to work for less than you, you can kiss that safety goodbye. And guess what? There'll always be somebody more desperate who'll be willing to work for... — read more
I'm planning an EXIT strategy and I'm just wondering if there will be any significant layoffs by the end of the year?
I think many will agree? People give notice and leave, here remain people who are under enormous stress with a double workload. For now, I am still grateful for the flexibility and ability to still work from home, but I hope that my superiors will... — read more
With the downsizing I was curious how many buildings are left in NetApp's Sunnyvale campus? I know at one point they had 14.
Sheila is leaving NetApp. Today is her last day at work. Anyone know why? More top leaders to follow? Watching closely.
Why is Kim Stevenson leaving NetApp, she has done a great job in developing her business group. Wish her the best.
Any changes? Does anybody mind sharing the details?
I'm once again shocked to find out which people have been targeted for layoffs. The ones I know are all excellent workers with plenty of experience and essential institutional knowledge that is now gone for good. What is the point of getting rid of... — read more
Looks like housecleaning is in effect again.
Offices being shutdown all over the US and Canada. Major staff reductions underway.
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
I used to like working here but lately, the cooperative environment has been replaced with toxic competitiveness. People are going out of their way to make sure others don't move forward, even if that wouldn't affect them in any way. Bullying is not... — read more
Two executives in one of the regions gone. Senior StorageGrid engineers gone. Layoffs disguised as retirements or mutually agreed to exits.
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?
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.
Layoffs have started. Any feedback from those who are affected?
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.
I heard NetApp was gearing up for layoffs. Anyone know anything?
I haven’t been in this company for long so I don’t know, what are the most vulnerable groups when it comes to layoffs? Who are the least safe employees? There has been talk of layoffs and I hear more and more rumors, so I’m a little anxious... — read more
The Street continues to underappreciate NetApp's software business and ascribe more importance to the hardware business despite accounting for 25% of revenue. Newer software offerings such as Astra (Kubernetes and container storage), SPOT... — read more
