hierarchical big company, full of VP's who build empires, potential for huge success

Senior Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
Milpitas, CA

I have been working at SanDisk full-time for more than a year

Proscash rich. hiring. if you keep your head down and make your manager look good, you can keep your job forever. some excellent technologists who manage to get stuff done in spite of many management levels. Huge potential for advantage in very hot market (SSD).

Consa huge, empire building, hierarchical bloated bureaucracy, with senior management who behaves as though they can treat employees however they like. May fail to capitalize on huge advantages because the empires can't work together. Hugely difficult to advance from within; management controls by refusing promotion without outside job offers.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop listening only to old guard; look for problems and fix them by removing management, not employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
