    Pros

    You're on your own and get to visit various retail locations. You schedule product demonstration days and employee trainings if mangers let you

    Cons

    Have to work weekends and evenings as these are high traffic times.

    I have been working at SanDisk full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Feel of a small company

    Cons

    1. Very bad office politics
    2. No clear roles and responsibilities
    3. Absolutely no work life balance
    4. Rewards and recognition are based on favoritism and not really to people who deserve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to improve greatly on work life balance, rewards and recognition to people who truly deserve, check on office politics and favoritism

    Current Employee - Director, Legal in Milpitas, CA

    I have been working at SanDisk full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance; great people; very diverse environment; strong company values that are genuine, not corporate mumbo jumbo; very ethical company; high confidence in executive staff; the bonus program is excellent (in some years I've gotten as much as 170% of my target bonus)

    Cons

    Some dysfunction is inevitable in any company, as are politics, but I don't think SanDisk has more than its share of either; benefits are OK - the basics - but unimaginative; equity compensation has gotten a lot leaner

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better succession planning and developing people (especially women) from within.

    Pros

    Management truly cares about the work being done, they challenge you to step your game up everyday! The people at SanDisk are wonderful, and help you get things done. We have a employee activities committee, and a strong volunteer program! It's nice to work for a company that pushes you to do meaningful work, and also cares about giving back...

    Cons

    We need better coffee at the coffee bar.
    Commute.
