<p>NetApp Ranking Marks Eighth Straight Appearance on Prestigious Top-100 List</p>
<p>Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 22 January 2010 – NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) today was ranked #7 in FORTUNE magazine’s "100 Best Companies to Work For" list for 2010. This is the second consecutive year that NetApp was ranked in the top 10 and the fourth consecutive year it was ranked in the top 15. “Congratulations to SAS for attaining the top spot in this year’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list,” said Tom Georgens, president and CEO at NetApp.</p>
<p>Based on this year’s Great Place to Work® Trust Index© employee survey, NetApp’s overall score is six points higher than last year’s score, and the company achieved higher scores in all five dimensions of the Trust Index: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. NetApp is committed to being a model company with a culture that values creativity, teamwork, productivity, leadership, and innovation. NetApp’s egalitarian culture, competitive salaries, unique benefits, and down-to-earth management style are valued by its employees and have led to the company’s consistently high ranking on FORTUNE’s list of the top-100 employers.</p>
<p>"We are honoured to be ranked #7 on FORTUNE's list and proud to have been ranked in the top 10 for three of the last four years. Our talented employees and strong global culture drive our company’s success,” said Georgens. "We are committed to our culture, values, and benefits, which create an environment that employees enjoy and value. In turn, that helps us enable customer breakthroughs, retain top talent, and deliver greater shareholder returns. We continue to focus on remaining one of the world’s best places to work."</p>

<p>To pick the 100 Best Companies, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the Institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to the employees’ attitudes about management credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third of the score is based on the company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring, communication, and diversity.</p>
