An Insider's view of NetApp

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office vibe is one of excitement. On one hand, there is always work to be done and a new project or product to be working on which helps keep the office thriving. On the other hand, we have a lot of fun! Whether it is over a surprise mini golf course in the office for April Fool’s Day, or a happy hour in the breakroom. We work hard & play hard.


Workplace Resources Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I've always been a fan of walking around and socializing. I've worked with many of the people here at previous companies, so knowing so many people makes it easy to grab a lunch, find out what other teams are up to. We also put on a hackathon and encourage working with people from other groups. I talk to everyone!

Def hackathons! Lot of good initiatives have come out of these. We are also starting a couple of initiatives.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I try to focus on leading by objectives. Then give them freedom to do the work as they see fit. If I can respond to a request for advice, I’m there. If I can make a suggestion for a problem they surface, I’m glad to do that, but how they do their job rests with them.
