NetApp is known for its innovation based culture, where we are continuously encouraging each individual to give beyond their best to customers and to all NetApp stakeholders. Our customer centric approach and strong team spirit have helped us build a company where innovation and success are the cornerstones. While our focus is on our customers and delivery, we also believe in providing our employees with a fun environment that augments creativity and have put HR initiatives in place that help with the personal growth and career development for every individual.” said Anil Valluri, President, India & SAARC Operations, NetApp.
“Built on a set of values, NetApp’s culture not only defines the ‘NetApp way’ of doing business but also shapes the ethos of the organization. It encourages every employee to push boundaries and take on new challenges. As a result, brilliant ideas and fresh perspectives are continually ‘released’ into the work environment. The annual 48-hour Hackathon at the Bangalore R&D centre is one such event where employees get an opportunity to work on concepts, which (otherwise) may never see the light of day. Suffice to say that innovation is what drives such events where teams: Invent. Re-invent. Refine and distill thought processes that yield technology breakthroughs, which later make it to roadmaps. Simply put; its mutual trust, transparency, teamwork and the ‘go beyond’ drive, to get things done that make NetApp a Great Place to Work.” said Deepak Visweswaraiah, MD, NetApp India R&D.
