NetApp Ranked #3 Best Place to Work in Australia on BRW’s 2011 List

Fourth consecutive year on BRW’s Best Companies list

SYDNEY, Australia-23 June 2011-NetApp today announced it has been ranked #3 on BRW's 2011 "50 Best Places to Work" list, based on research conducted by the Great Place to Work™ Institute Australia, having earned the #1 spot in 2010.

This success is the result of NetApp's positive work environment, which encourages trust, integrity, equality, autonomy, open communication, collaboration and opportunities for every employee. The company adopts a down-to-earth approach to accomplishing business objectives and believes in the strength of a shared vision where employee input is encouraged and valued.

Peter O'Connor, Vice President for NetApp Australia and New Zealand, said, "We are extremely happy to be named the #3 Best Place to Work in Australia. NetApp is committed to building a model company with a culture that values creativity, teamwork, productivity, leadership, and innovation. Our team of people is the key to what makes NetApp such a great place to work. Their passion and dedication is fundamental to NetApp's success, both in Australia and around the world.

"I would like to congratulate all of the companies which made BRW's list this year. We are very proud of being a great place to work and I thank the NetApp Australia team for its continued dedication to going beyond and providing an outstanding experience for our customers."

Further information used for the selection process is provided by completing the Great Place to Work™ Culture Audit©, a two part management questionnaire, also developed by the Great Place to Work™ Institute.
