I worked at Applied Materials

Pros

Multi-ethnic workforce, safe work environment, ethical. Good bonuses when times are good. Stock grant program and employee stock purchase plan.

Cons

Company has outsourced and cut the workforce to meet unrealistic targets. This has led to a lot of strain on current employees. Poor senior management decisions relating to acquisitions, etc. have left the stock floundering.
