    Awesome working at SanDisk, but not so in SanDisk IT dept

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsOk, Pay, great work environment, good campus

    ConsSanDisk IT is based on one person's view, who is an "AS" CIO Ravi Naik, he has his stinking Indian team, no one gets good hike, stocks or promotions. He robs other's money by allocating all the options to himself and his close friends. You have to suck up to him to get good rating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHigh time to look in to IT Dept, the current CIO has build his empire and is very mean to other's who are not in his circle. There are so many hardworking employees who deserve much better reviews than the one's who are close to CIO.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior hardware engineer

    Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsRelax style, traditional company, not too much push from management. May worth to stay if you are not want to be pushed too hard.

    ConsAverage salary, not big development in the future. Fierce competition from peers. Not fully inside the mobile market.

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

    Great experience as an Intern! Would love to continue here after I graduate :)

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsOne of the best tech companies to work with, lots to learn through collaboration. Lots of opportunity to grow technically, culture is great! One of the coolest university programs...summer was awesome fun! Good opportunities seem to exist, to continue as an employee after graduation. Managers and Colleagues really care about your personal growth, work with you closely to help you ramp up quickly and then reasonably expect you to contribute to work! Flexible working hours help a lot, to be able to balance work-and-school!

    ConsNot any that I have experienced so far!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the same culture as growth continues...Bring in more start-up culture! Keep interns busy and excited with university programs that extend beyond summer ;)

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

    Friendly people, Solid experience, new intern program so undeveloped structure

    Field Marketing Intern (Former Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsManagement was wonderful - friendly and truly cared about the intern experience. Could ask them questions and encouraged us to pitch ideas, opportunities and take the reins.

    ConsCould have used more on-site time. Position was in field marketing and got a great amount of field experience, but as a college student would have been helpful to understand corporate environment and structure as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVery friendly and wonderful to work with. Supportive of interns and wanted to build a solid intern experience. With such young interns (sophomore/junior in college), could always use more mentorship, structure, and guidance! While there was lots of opportunity to define your own success and no bounds on how far to go, sometime baseline expectations were unclear because they were largely unquantifiable.
