I'm curious, considering that all who post here seem to really hate their jobs...

there are many that are taking advantage and doing the least possible amount of work acting as if they are doing work. Not much accountability or loyalty to the company or leadership. why not? You still get paid. Like the last post easy money and just waiting for a package.
Easy money, lazy leadership. I’m on my way out though. Just waiting for a package. Why not?
I find it amazing that there are a few folks who are happy. NetApp hasn’t been a great place to work for years. Now that all the original founders are out, good look making shareholders happy. Bottom line, you can’t and this journey is coming to an end. Don’t believe me, actually attend an all hands meeting and listen to the lack of strategy and innovation.
If they don't like their jobs, they should find new ones or should have before all this happened. Instead, people are on here complaining instead of doing something about it. Move on...find something that makes you happy instead of being negative....
I mean, some people at NetApp are not investing all their days in the job or not buying the corporate strategy (I'm sure some fake to like it as long as it pays but that an assumption), but when you know they have objectives and plan. Some are surfing and making carrier and take the money for the time being, but they have talent in written and oral, even if it's not deep thinking (even the poorness of the argument but that's general in the IT industry, you have to seduce and make the customer/people consume) and they are rewarded for that, some invest elsewhere like I know one who is the CTO of a startup, other invest in online business or real estate, but keep this job for stable incomes... Linkedin can be a mine to discover their long term plan.
You can also fight to have the position you want internally and give you an action plan but you have to explicitely do it and make the people know, if it fails, you'll find it elsewhere : that's what I've done, I couldn't wait anymore.
Judging by the reviews on Glassdoor lots of people still find it a great place to work. This is a forum for those who don’t, mostly.
Maybe it’s time to move or see more largely : what are your life objectives ? How do you measure them ? Please clarify
Someone posted this a couple days ago which is partly the case
“There’s a lot of deadweight at NetApp. Many are laying low collecting the dough as they say. Management oversight is lacking. Always has been the case.”
I would also add that some people are waiting for a package.
Yes, I enjoy my job. Good team to work with and challenging projects. The execs above change, but it has not affected my day-to-day in the cube.
If I did not like NetApp, I'd work somewhere else.
And on that note, if you don't why are you still here?
