    Former Employee - Senior Reliability Engineer in Milpitas, CA

    I worked at SanDisk full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fair salary. work environment was OK. It all boils down to management. I didnt have a manager, some people had great managers. Very good employee compensation package. Free breakfast (Oatmeal only) and huge, great parties.

    Cons

    Long hours. Travel up to 25 - 50 %. Like I said management was not good. I worked for a small Start up Pliant Technologies (SDD engineering) that was purchased by SanDisk. Just a different mentality I guess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont just Hire a person off the street. Promote within. Give more training. And when an employee gets sick and has a heart attack like I did. Have a little courtesy. Dont give away their job without telling them. And when they get back, don't "Stuff" them in their cubical and tell them there is no work. Go have a late at the coffee bay then check back.

    I worked at SanDisk as an intern

    Pros

    Excellent job profile, best team to start with if you are looking to work in Nand Flash memory technology, the work culture is very impressive

    Cons

    This was my first job so I had no expectations, it was basically the Facebook of memory technologies for me. The University Relations team has been helpful even after I discontinued.
