    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Milpitas, CA (US)

    I worked at SanDisk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are only a few sections of IT where the going is good but software development is not one of them. So consider it before you think of joining IT.

    Cons

    Has a complete sweatshop mentality and attitude, especially if you're of Asian Indian origin. The Director is prone to yelling at you in profane words in front of your colleagues, not letting you go home until the job's done, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like adults and give them some respect.

    I have been working at SanDisk

    Pros

    The organization strives for results and innovation, overall - a good atmosphere in the company and the people are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    I can't find many cons but if you're looking for a place to grow as a leader or if you hope to climb the management ladder, SanDisk is probably not the best place to start with.
