Local biz journals saying she is heading to Cisco on her own accord. This just fuels the rumors that we have heard for years saying Cisco could buy NetApp. She would certainly be a good candidate to head up an integration plan.

I wish I had been dumped by NetApp in March with the good package. Maybe I'll get lucky this time around and I'll still get the severance. Otherwise I'll join Denise and jump ship...
Her leaving had nothing to do with the direction of the company. NetApp is a terrible place to work and the politics are horrible. Kurian has no forward thinking and is a rah rah speech giver who is failing as a CEO. But he does seem to be trying hard to sell off NetApp. But he doesn't care about the people because if he s---s as a CEO and gets let go, he will get a golden package just like Georgens who ran the place into the ground.
She's just paving the way for the "Cisco to buy acquire NetApp" headline
Good riddance! One less useless exec dragging us down.
There isn't much left in NetApp. She just realised it and moved out. Easy days are gone..In a way good for NetApp, one high paid executive less.
With a few notable exceptions Netapp made a tradition in hiring poor quality managers which eventually will bring down the company no matter how hard brilliant engineers will try to keep the ship afloat.
Eh... She just jumped the sinking ship for a better paying one. I wouldn't read that much into it.
