Emphasising structure, process, and accountability, capitalise on market opportunities and attain better leverage with current channel partners.

Cool products and some good people to work with but no work/life balance. Understaffed, Upper Management stuck in their own ways and no room for growth.

Netgear is fast paced and a great place to learn
Director of QA (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAMarch 12, 2015
I had a great experience at Netgear. It is fast paced, and full of opportunity for those that want to knock it out of the park. It is headquartered in San Jose, CA, and definitely has the silicon value feel to the way they work. There is a lot of learning potential. The CEO definitely runs the place. Produce and you will do well; slack off and you won't last. The company pays well which matches the work level.
Pros
opportunity, pay
Cons
work-life balance, stability

Honestly
Manufacturing Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAApril 12, 2014
Netgear was perhaps one of the nicest places I will have worked at for a long time, everyone there is caring, respectful, and bashful which could not make for a better working environment. Management there was very open to new thoughts and ideas to help better the company and although I was only in manufacturing engineering I was able to contribute directly to upper management executives and bring some creativity to a dry marketing/advertising department.
Pros
gym in the office, free food, drinks, and coffee, uses salesforce to full potential in office

Everything about the work is doable

Enjoyable part was the Team Building every quarter of the year

regrettable cases where you cannot provide help to customers

Fast Paced Enviroment
Welcome Center Supervisor/Trainer (Former Employee) –  South Jordan UtahJune 1, 2012
I started at this company as one of its first employees for customer service, so there were a lot of rough patches when first starting out. The managers for the most part were very good at their jobs, but unfortunately changed almost monthly. I loved working with the majority of people there, and got along with everyone.

The worst part of this job was communicating with the other service agents in India. We were business support, but they kept sending us the home agents.

The most enjoyable was the team. The people were fun, and were all able to do their jobs well!

There is no opportunity for career development and/or advancement. Pay scale is lower than competition.
Channel Account Manager (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAApril 1, 2012
This is a retail focused (consumer/home skus) company trying to gain leverage in the enterprise space with commercial offerings. There is no real partner enablement program. The promotions are retail focused and are not consistent - they are often pulled by mid-quarter without warning or sometimes there is a promotion offered in the last 3-weeks of a quarter leaving little time for a partner to take advantage.
Pros
comes with a paycheck.
Cons
no opportunity for advancement, pay scale is much lower than competition
