I can hardly believe that it’s been a month since I joined NetApp to assume leadership of the Cloud Volumes business. My first month here has been amazing, even though stepping into any new role during these times of rapid change is not a trivial undertaking.
I expected onboarding in a new virtual world to surface challenges, and I am pleased to share that I was wrong. My experience with NetApp has been excellent, from onboarding to collaborating across teams. I attribute this experience to the company’s technology choices. These choices empower and support existing team members and deliver a simplified new hire experience that I would argue rivals most in-person onboarding programs.
