    StarStarStarStarStar Former Manager in San Jose, California

    5% of your salary match for 401K, HSA contribution to help offset deductible, Free breakfast (Oatmeal) every day. Used to have free lunch once a week which was stopped recently.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Engineer in San Jose, California

    Health insurance has only one option: HDHP, and it is not cheap. There is no entitled vacation time, vacation is either zero or "unlimited" per approval.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Principal Systems Engineer in Milpitas, California

    The Health Benefits are bad compared to what it was in Sandisk. Extremely high deductible.

  • Jan 17, 2019
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Principal Software Engineer in San Jose, California

    6 Monthly STI (Short Term Incentive) + LTI (Long term Incentive) + Appraisal (2.5%) is all combined and given after every 1 year which is very low as compared to other companies in Bay Area

    Free gym class and trainer

  • Nov 15, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Irvine, California

    Benefits coverage day 1, comprehensive health insurance, all preventive services covered 100%, employer HSA contribution each year helps offset high deductibles, plus additional opportunities to earn more HSA incentives, fantastic on-site Wellness centers with Anthem and Kaiser concierges, free yoga classes and therapist, great 401k plan and educational sessions. Employees just need to research or ask how to use their plans to get the most out of them.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Principal Firmware Engineer in Milpitas, California

    Salary and equity are not comparable with the rest of the Silicon valley at all! But very flexible work so work from home (whether US or international) is accepted

  • Oct 23, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Milpitas, California

    Benefits are there similar to any other software company out there. But the plans are not great. You will end up paying so much monthly from your salary if wants a better plan.

  • Oct 15, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Product Marketing Manager in Milpitas, California

    Its a very old style company, the review cycle is not very fair. If you dont agree with your manager its difficult for you to grow within the company

  • Aug 27, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Milpitas, California

    Out-of-pocket is high for medical benefits compared to industry standard. Best for those that are healthy. Dental and vision are standard. 401k vest 100% after 4 years. Only good perk is the unlimited PTO (at your manager's discretion).
