Former Employee - Program Manager in Milpitas, CA

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

Pros

The company is in a great market space and has talented and friendly people to work with. The company has an opportunity to be one of the Silicon Valley success stories if streered correctly by upper management.

Cons

In spite of the great market space the company is positioned in, the management does not seem to be focussed and tends to spread itself thin over too many and poorrly managed endeavors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not flounder the opportunity and focus on things you can dliver on.

    I have been working at SanDisk full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation. Work very independently. Nobody will tell you how to do your work.

    Cons

    No training. Archaic work methods. Constant reorgs and reshuffling. Extremely political. Almost any activity is spread across 3 continents. No long-term vision. This is a typical semiconductor company:sell more silicon that costs less money. The products themselves are considered fancy and unreasonably expensive packaging. It is all about moving NAND Exabytes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advice the BoD to replace management with brilliant managers who have varied experience. You judge brilliance at an interview, not by resume accomplishments. And make sure the CEO is capable of leading a company. And an MBA (a real MBA, not a Stanford remedial course) actually helps.
