      Generous Bonus plan, Stingy on PTO, Lacks diversity, Good not Great place to work

      Jul 28, 2015 - Staff Product Engineer in Milpitas, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      For the most part, reward is equivalent to performance. Motivated teams, very fast paced environment. If you can filter the noise, good learning experience. During regular day to day operations, never felt any discrimination, but there are groups, more like cults that don't like to collaborate.

      Cons

      Lacks diversity, sometimes situations and decision making gets too political. The generous bonus plan i mention equates to abandoning your personal life. They could be a bit more generous with the stingy PTO policy, out of which roughly 4-5 are forced PTO days, which they call shutdown. The only orientation or training that happened was with regards to HR policies and processes. Within most engineering teams, you are thrown in the pool and you learn to swim on your own. Most managers are managers because they run out of engineering titles at some point. A lot of these people need to be taught people management and people retention skills

      SanDisk Response

      HR Communications

      We appreciate your feedback and your comment about our work environment. We strive to reward everyone fairly for their work and appreciate you recognizing that. We pride ourselves in contributing to the competitive environment of the Silicon Valley and believe our motivated teams are a crucial component contributing to this success. Your feedback about our orientation and training programs is very helpful. In our Voice of the Employee (VOE) survey conducted in July 2014, several other employees communicated similar concerns with regards to training. In response, a team of leaders from different departments have spent several months outlining specific issues within their organizations in terms of training, and have now created specific trainings that address the issues found within their organizations. We are confident that the time we dedicated towards this initiative will help solve several of the issues mentioned in the VOE and hope that employees find the new trainings useful! If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to reach out to any department, as we welcome any feedback that can help us continuously improve our practices!
