    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not much work-life balance. There is a lot of pressure to meet deadlines. Other than this, it is a Company to work for.

    Pros

    As a fresher very good place to learn many things, Concepts of memories give you more interest to work

    Cons

    Here higher employee's are dominating the freshers. Management is not following any producers which we cannot expect with MNC companies like this.
