    I worked at SanDisk as an intern

    Pros

    Excellent job profile, best team to start with if you are looking to work in Nand Flash memory technology, the work culture is very impressive

    Cons

    This was my first job so I had no expectations, it was basically the Facebook of memory technologies for me. The University Relations team has been helpful even after I discontinued.

    I have been working at SanDisk

    Pros

    Very good hiring process - Olga Ocon was my recruiter and was able to provide a clear direction on the entire interview/hiring process.

    Good people to work with - most people are very helpful and are willing to work with you on issues.

    Lots of Corporate Activities - company has at least one event every quarter to celebrate a holiday or event.

    Cons

    Lots of change - seems like the company is still trying to figure out how to manage certain groups....

    Lots of processes - sometimes very difficult to get certain things done because there are a lot of people and processes involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should do a better job of assessing the current situation and evaluating employees strengths/weakness before doing a re-org.

    Need to improve certain business units culture.
