Thank you NetApp for being so stupid and screwing your top overachievers. We at Pure Storage have our recruiters working overtime to provide them a safe landing spot where they can make millions

Why would anyone join Cohesity over Rubrik? Cohesity is like playing JV when you could play Varsity with Rubrik
Cohesity will take a few more resources as well. Jump aboard while you can.
I’m a Global Architect and was advised by my manger today start looking for a new job. He’s resigning and everyone in our team is slated to be displaced through a pending layoff.
The reason there are no "News Stories" in the USA is because they aren't filing notice with the feds. They are laying off an average of 250 employees biweekly and the number they will hit is roughly 2500 based on the volume of people who were technical under C.W. who was the SVP and GM laid off at the end of April. Again, you people think you know what's going on, but you do not because NetApp leadership refuses to communicate who is laid off in general. Keep drinking the Kool-aid and thinking NetApp is going to survive. They are not. They are shifting their entire strategy to partner/resellers and any internal staff that's not in management in general will be displaced. When the core people of NetApp disappear and all that is left is a VAR to deal with, NetApp stock will tank and that's the rest of the story. You can't fun NetApp with just a partner focus. They are trying to copy Veeam's success and out of the gate, they can't because their products are no longer state of the art. Doesn't matter how you sell garbage, it's still garbage. Read about the strategy overseas such as here: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/04/30/netapp_emea_country_offices/
I think that number could be high but their have been a high number of layoffs publicly declared. Look at EMEA. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/04/30/netapp_emea_country_offices/
Stop repeating that c-ap. NetApp has not laid off 20% of its workforce. Dont you think you might have heard about that in the financial coverage and media.
Wow! NetApp really screwed up this time. Sounds like the 2,500 people being laid off number was spot on. Between technical and sales staff being laid off globally in silos, I predict more than 2,500 laid off. They are shifting to a partner/reseller only model for everything. Modeling everything after Veeam’s playbook. Unbelievable. NetApp is commodity hardware with no real staff to support it. Transitioning to that strategy today is a decade too late. Got WAFL? Seriously? Why buy NetApp when you can buy so many other better solutions? (Former NetApp SE, now working for Facebook)
that lame reply from pure storage was just that. be professional.
How many engineers does it take to screw over a salesforce? I guess Kurious George proved that answer is 1
I will! Better than the God awful cesspool of NetApp. Don’t be bitter. Get a clue.
Sniff, sniff. You smell that? Ewww! Is that Pure Storage?! Wow, a market trailer in a dying technology. Yes. Totally run to these guys for a bright future.
Oh please. This really isnt the place for this nonsense.
We at Amazon are doing the same. NetApp really has lost the game due to shareholder greed and Kurious George’s continued “Transformation” efforts. What a joke!
