      Summer Intern review (ASIC Analog)

      Pros

      The work was really good. Flexible timings. Good stipend(35k + 2.2k sodexo pm). I was shocked to know that Sandisk has analog team only at WD bangalore😯.

      Cons

      There was a little communication gap between the mentor and interns. My co-interns who worked in other teams(other than analog) were not given quality work.

      Pros

      I have worked here day in and day out for more than 3 years. I joined as an employee of Sandisk. This used to be a great place to work for, but the company culture and values have taken a nosedive ever since it has been taken over by Western Digital. There are hardly any pros after it has been!! I'll share them when I remember any.

      Cons

      Possibly the worst company to work for. * No concerns of the employees. * No proper hike in the last 3 years of my career here * No hike in the last 1.5 years and the hike has been delayed by 5 more months. * They claim to be themselves to be an employee-friendly but largely they are just trying to please themselves and boast about something that doesn't exist in their principles. * No bonus, short term incentives or long term incentives have been paid out in the last one year. * Company keeps shopping and acquiring new organization but hasn't even paid out a single penny in the last one year. * Delayed the hike of the hard-working employees and ave even fired a few claiming they are in a loss and at the same time have been hiring new employees. * Huge parity in the pay scale as even some of the senior guys with 8-10 years of experience are being paid less than the newly hired college graduates. Joining this organization was probably the biggest mistake in my entire career.

      Pros

      SanDisk is one of the best places to work for in India.(This opinion is purely based on the fact that I've seen my friends working in different companies and most of them mentioned - I should have been in your company).

      Cons

      If you are a pure software guy, think twice. There are better places in Bangalore for pure storage software folks. Culture and facilities are topnotch. If you are not too keen on type of work you are going to do, please join. If you are very particular about work and you are a storage software person, then please abstain.

      Pros

      Infrastructure and policies are good Salary is Ok. Flexible work hour

      No Process. No Learning. Mostly testing work in india. If you join SanDisk(WD) , it will be very difficult to go out.

      Pros

      work-life balance is very good. Basically people survive there by doing minimum required work. That is if you're not facing customers.

      Cons

      Bad for career growth. Bad management. Constantly changing directions and cancelling products. Went spirally down after acquiring SanDisk. Definitely stay away if you consider yourself and A-rated engineer.

      Pros

      the company is a good size company with different locations and functions.

      Cons

      Ever since combine both HGST and SanDisk, the company is divided into different culture and objectives. most does not align and can not see clear path nor direction.
