    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    With AMAT being such large company mobility is a major pro, you can move from one division to another without many problems. This helps in personal growth, but not so much in career growth.

    Cons

    Top Management is too focused on stock performance, so they cut everything that made the employees happy and extremely motivated to work hard and get very positive results. Years ago employee benefits paid off two ways, kept employees happy and motivated, which in turn drove the stock up. Now with the strong focus only on stock, employees are not very motivated and the stock has been stagnant for ten years.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employees, that will in turn improve the stock. Happy motivated employees in turn provide good results, happy customers and will once again bring AMAT to the industry leaders. We also need to face the facts that we are no longer the industry innovators that we once were. When was the last time we developed a new tool, like the P5000, PVD, Centura, Mesa? We need to lead and stop seeing what our competitors are doing then throw manpower at a project to copy it.

    Cons

    Big, bureauractic company Weak leadership which is more concerned about fighting each other than leading the company Lots of people just put in time and collect a paycheck without much work (and they stay because of benefits/bonuses, not because they enjoy working there)
