    Current Employee - Senior Business Systems Analyst in Bangalore

    I have been working at SanDisk full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home is at its best as the director who was heading our unit would hardly come to office.
    Decent compensation

    Cons

    Leadership is screwed up with lots of favourism.
    There is lot of gap b/w mgr and associate, there is a third dimension of Manager's Manager putting his personal opinions which are never professional.
    Not a company to be part of if you are a business Analyst, Reporting is cosidered as analytics which is a false thing.
    Very chaotic work management, no proper resource management, Deadlines run as per one individual, which in most of times was getting pounded in rebellious way by other counterpart business teams.
    Travel options are feeble unless you can ur supervisor's blue eyed boy..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut some of the slacking directors.
    You cant be aggressive all the times wrt growth of just the company.
    Spend some time with Employees and have more employee Engagement sessions.
    Give some respect to Personal life of employees. At the end of the day Its ur employees who make the company and the Board of Directors.
    There is no culture in company and things run on random basis.
