Good Company

Cooperative workers, but advancement very difficult
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) –  Milpitas, CAJuly 13, 2017
+: Good work life balance, open sharing of information, helpful coworkers.
-: Advancement very difficult, tends to be political and favors forceful/ aggressive personalities. No clear definition of performance metrics needed to go to next level. Appears to be based on perception and how well you know higher ups.

SanDisk before it was acquired by Western Digital is a fine place to work
Sr. Director, Product Management, (Current Employee) –  Milpitas, CAApril 5, 2017
SanDisk is now part of Western Digital. My particular BU which was formed to market to Enterprise customers is really bad. I am not really familiar with the rest of the Western Digital businesses or their culture.

Overall benefits is lower compared to Silicon Valley standards. Management of my BU is very bad, but overall company management seemed to be average

Great place to work.. just no opportunity for advancement

Great place to work.. just no opportunity for advancement More than likely, you will always stay in the same position. The Pay is ok.. but often times there are cases of work requirement inflation.
Pros
Pay
Cons
No room for advancement

Too much emphasis on work with no regard to personal health
Employee (Former Employee) –  Milpitas, CAMarch 30, 2017
They work you to death there. Exempt employees are seen as not working hard enough if putting in less than 50 hour work weeks. Personal/home/health are not given any weight over work for the company.

salary not worth hours
Accountant (Current Employee) –  Milpitas, CAMarch 6, 2017
There is no personal life balance. I work 13+ hour days and am exempt. Have worked every weekend 6+ hours on both days... still. Asked for time off a month in advance for one day and told no because of yet another reporting crisis. Management is horrid. No control over deadlines. No idea of what it takes to do the jobs of employees. Am looking to get out ASAP. Always ask what happened to the people who did your job before you. These aren't new jobs. The jobs open are backfills for people fleeing..
Pros
None
Cons
management, structure, hours

Good place to work and grow
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Milpitas, CAFebruary 14, 2017
I spent many years at SanDisk, surviving many market downturns and direction changes. SanDisk grew into a powerhouse company acquiring company after company, trying to incorporate that into growth and vision for the future. Unfortunately, that growth and vision became more inconsistent and muddied with constant churn. While the workplace culture improved, morale would be decimated by flip-flopping managerial styles and quick turnover of managers and teams. Good people would be relegated to new managers, prompting good people to leave. And good managers would be given impossible tasks, prompting good managers to leave. Seems like the only way to stay afloat was to constantly shift roles to ride various waves of whatever was currently popular in management consulting courses.

Great place with great benefits prior to acquistion
Sales Operations (Current Employee) –  Milpitas, CAFebruary 6, 2017
Great company to work for: good pay, smart people, lots of opportunities for advancement, interesting work, growing company. Most people are down to earth and are helpful.

This is all prior to the acquisition by Western Digital and this review is based on such. After the acquisition it's not as good: less benefits (high deductibles), much lower pay, opportunities for advancement are limited, and it seems not as open as before despite the attempt to be. I don't necessary agree with the direction the company is going but at the end of the day, it's all about profits and money talks.
