I have been working at SanDisk full-time

Pros

Nothing that I can say here.

Cons

Only 2 types of people do well in this division (Corporate Operations):
1) A friend / very close acquaintance of the top guy of this division.
2) Extremely politically savvy, invertebrate, and an immaculate boot licker.

Otherwise, be ready to be handover your sanity + life + career to the whims and ridicule of some "sadistic" upper management, whose excels to "use you" as a mere strawman for every tasks, take all of your credits as their own ideas and blame you for every politics, issues and problems. May sound scary but true.

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

    Pros

    The people are among the most talented I've ever worked with.
    The compensation package is good.
    SanDisk is trying to make the changes necessary to better manage the business.

    Cons

    A couple of the functional areas are weak, and this detracts from our potential.
    SanDisk senior management likes to micro-manage.
    The project portfolio management is the worst I've ever seen.
    SanDisk isn't organized to support our product lines and customers so there's a lot of internal conflict.
    Most of the items listed above result in employees having to work twice as hard and as long as necessary to get products out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need radical change. Strengthen certain functions. Re-organize to support customers better. Don't micro-manage - focus on strategy. Get real portfolio management.
