    No sick days

    Senior Device Engineer (Current Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsThere is very few good reasons.

    ConsSick days does not exist in SanDisk. Getting sick means losing vacation days which makes going to work a priority over health. Such policy is quite rare and has a very negative effect on company's overall image.

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

    Low level management is the pits

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsUpward momentum of the NAND flash industry and Sandisk is a big integral part of it..
    Good overall and stock compensation

    ConsNon existent culture. Suck up to long timers to get promoted. No value for title. Extremely top heavy - Almost everyone is a "Director" or above.
    Low level cronies of certain Directors have no knowledge whatsoever of the products they manage, have 5+ employees leaving within a short span and still get promoted.
    if you come from a good company or went to great schools and have had a good career, joining SanDisk is kissing your career goodbye.
    Review and rating is a joke

    Advice to Senior Management- Take manager feedback seriously. Fire low performing managers if they don't make a certain cut and dont promote them sending the wrong message.

    Good and Bad both

    Design Engineer II (Current Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsWork place is very competitive.
    Manager is very helpful & supportive.
    Facility are good like the gym , volleyball court and cafe.
    Company is doing great so stock prices are rising rapidly. This gives good returns on ESPP otherwise not much of an advantage for Design Engineer II.

    ConsSalary is too low.
    Work life balance is missing.
    No overtime pay.
    Still using old verification technique.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo something about the salaries of Freshers. And if you want to stick to median pay then give good hike every year.

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

    A great place to learn.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSanDisk is a great place to learn. The benefits offered are at par with most Companies. Training programs are designed for personal growth.

    ConsNot much work-life balance. There is a lot of pressure to meet deadlines. Other than this, it is a Company to work for.

    The best internship I could have asked for!

    Field Marketering Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsWorks perfectly for college students with busy schedules because the hours are very flexible.
    There is a lot of of opportunity to travel for events and trade shows (after you have proven yourself to management)
    There are many other positive things about this internship.

    ConsAfter the summer, the team's focus strays away from the interns. It becomes repetitive after a while but my advice would to be to actively ask for more assignments. I

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more assignments past the summer.

    Fruitful experience

    Staff Firmware Engineer (Current Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsCash rich! Good company and work culture. You would learn lot of new tools/softwares which are used to ease up the product development process. On personal level, company arranges different kind of activities (outside work) for its employees.

    ConsThe benefit package is standard which other bay area companies also give. Being a cash rich company, it can do better in compensating Employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
