I have been working at Applied Materials

Pros

The people are great. Its a really large company and there are many opportunites to get work in other departments

Cons

Management at least in my case didn't respond to e-mails or even phone calls sometimes. There was little appreciation from management of the work done but if something didn't get done you would herr from them quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to train their managers better. If their managers showed the employees more respect and appreciation it would make it a great place to work.

    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.
