Relaxed, professional, trusting, friendly
Principal Data Scientist (Current Employee) – Milpitas, CA – January 15, 2018
Work at SanDisk has been rewarding. The work atmosphere very trusting and I particularly enjoyed the team and my manager when I started working at SanDisk. I believe manager makes all the difference when it comes to employees being happy or not. Give trust, support and flexibility to your employees is some of the key success for a healthy team.
I also enjoyed the level of professionalism at SanDisk. Everyone did their job, respecting their and others' boundaries.
The one challenging part of my job was lack of experience with statistical or ML method of data analysis on engineering side! It was a challenge to get them to believe that there are better ways of looking at and analyzing data! But this was, perhaps, a plus at the end. I got to use this shortcoming to establish good working relation with them and win their trust.
Of course when SanDisk was acquired by WD, things, naturally changed.
