Director, Emerging Technology and Innovation (Former Employee), Milpitas, CA – March 18, 2014
It is as you would expect at SanDisk. SemiCon company that hires and lays off employees often. Due to the nature of the industry, it is feast or famine. The management of the company seems somewhat reactive/tactical rather than proactive/strategic.
Business Intelligence/ Data Analyst Intern (Former Employee), Milpitas – January 27, 2014

Sales Operations Account Manager (Former Employee), Milpitas, CA – August 20, 2013
100% turn over during my tenure. Management did not know how to operate systems and were not willing to learn. All training provided through co-workers. No accountability, all failures were blamed on staff. Expected to be tethered to your laptop or phone no matter what time of day, 80+ hour work weeks are not uncommon. Absolutely zero work / life balance.
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee), Sunnyvale, CA – August 2, 2013
Pros: culture, environment, staff.
Cons: not any.
As a temporary employee my experience was positive, worked on processing the new hire brochures, benefits packets. Audited and re-arrangement of employment files and federal and state required documents.
I enjoyed the HR team, would have wanted to be a part of the team, however, was offered a position at Estancia Estates. Hardest part of the job was – more... leaving it. – less
Great benefits and compensation but sometimes stressful environment
Senior OEM Sales Operations Representative (Former Employee), Milpitas, CA – February 7, 2013
Pros: great benefits and compensation plans, salaries were higher than the usual
Cons: stressful, over worked, management
The job was definitely not 8-5.....usually had to check emails from home with factories in Asia.....Overall management from CEO to lower levels treated the company as a startup rather than a multi-million dollar corporation.....immediate co-workers were a lot like family and worked very well together with them......the hardest part of the job were the – more... hours......the most enjoyable part were the people..... – less
Retail Sales Support Manager / Desk Manager (Current Employee), Milpitas, CA – October 18, 2012
Pros: casual environment, cafeteria, gym, great medical and financial benefits.
Cons: culture, lack of conference rooms.
There really is no such thing as a typical day at the office. The weeks are cyclical - some days are relatively low key while others have most people running full speed to meet major deadlines. I live for those days - the days where I'm running from marketing to operations to logistics in order to make sure the correct product and packaging shipped – more... to the right account and destination. I've learned a ton in my career here ranging from recruiting and finance to sales, channel marketing and business development. – less
