    I worked at SanDisk

    Pros

    good people amazing cafeteria decent stipend there is a paid service for conveyance

    Cons

    interns do not get significant tasks, sometimes interns do not even get a chance to express their point of view. At the end of internship, there is a big chance that you wont get a chance to present your project or get an interview

    Pros

    Good people, good work. Cool campus, food, gym etc. Competitive salaries.

    Management is not that great. Direction keeps changing and deadlines keep getting missed. Employees are effected by this. Not sure if this place will be the same in future with WD integration.

    I worked at SanDisk full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If everything works out well, the rotation program helps you maximize skillset building (mostly in Operations/Supply Chain/Analytical/Project Management). SanDisk, as a company, holds best-in-class talent and technology in the industry. (You should keep in mind that in terms of talent of its employees, a top company in Semiconductor is not comparable to a one in other emerging tech areas.) There are a few good people managers that you may be able to work for/with.

    Cons

    Company: - Culture: highly political and impersonal. The company only cares about cost/performance, rather than building the right company culture or promoting company values. A significant portion of people decisions were very poorly made, usually driven by political powers. - Irresponsible and weak Executive team: When Management makes wrong decisions, employees usually become the scapegoats. - Amazingly poor HR management: HR influence and control are almost non-existent. The company is highly hierarchical, which only encourages politics and slows down the decision-making process. The immigration team treats alien employees in the most unrespectful way. There are no truly functioning feedback loops within the company. - Diversity: SanDisk's understanding of diversity is very immature - it basically thinks that promoting diversity is equivalent to promoting its employees' home cultures. Black and Hispanic presences (esp. in mid to senior management) are extremely limited in the company. Different ethical groups are segregated rather than collaborative. Also, my perception is that the company does not care about LGBT diversity at all. Rotation Program: The rotation program openings are highly concentrated in the Planning organization, driven by business needs and cost considerations, rather than participants' growth opportunities. The rotation cycles are redundantly long. If your primary focus in your career is to grow, this may not be the best program to start with. Also, the promotion process within the program is broken, which has caused high turn-over historically.
