Highly Autonomous Role with ability to overachieve through hard work
Account Manager QLD/NT/WA (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD10 July 2018
Working from home remotely included organising all of my own call cycles, customer training and travel to regional areas. Weekly tracking of my sales numbers and reporting back to business. Everyday was different with over 75 individual customers to call on for over 40 products as well as implementing marketing, sales and promotions across all of the shop fronts.
I learned so much about retailers, how to interact with so many different personalities and what it means to go above an beyond.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with management that were indecisive. The best part of this job was the engagement with such a broad group of customers and the challenges that they bought daily.
Pros
Good pay incentives, Varied daily
Cons
a lot of interstate travel

Limited opportunities.
Senior Manager, Distribution (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara County, CA4 December 2017
Limited opportunity for advancement. Some folks in Operations have been there way too long. Small company feel, good products, could be better than it is.

The climate at NETGEAR is 100% driven by the CEO. This creates a daily challenge for visibility and career security in the sales organization. Longer term is the expectation of the CEO's retirement with no succession plan.

Fast paced environment for a large company. It runs more like a start-up company. People are dedicated and loyal to the company.

Netgear is fast paced and a great place to learn
Director of QA (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CA12 March 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
