Advice to ManagementAdvice

Finance101: Stock price reflects CxO's capability and the relative performance to the competitors in the same industry. Try to learn and get inspired from Steve Jobs, while we still have chance to bring back the glorious old days.

    I worked at Applied Materials

    Pros

    Number one in semi tool industry. R&D oriented. Cutting-edge technologies. Good pay and OK benifits. Encourage employee grow.

    Cons

    Rich soil for politics. In many cases HR is only working for management to threaten employees, through "written warning" etc., who have different oppions. Some massive lay-offs for no clear reason. Too many directors/Sr directors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management should encourage 1st, 2nd line managers to treat worker more humane.
