Applied Materials was a great place to work as long as you got through the cyclical downturns in the industry.

Pros

Worked with very smart, competent people while at this company. They really do acquire good employees and it had a very good team appeal in the work groups I was involved. Many opportunities to make good business connections and move around within the company.

Cons

There are sometimes too much business processes to get through to get to the end result. During my initial time in this company, there were too many levels between individual contributor and CEO. It had since come down and been flattened before I left.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, laid-back and easy-going work life in South Bay. Friendly coworkers and management is eager to help

    Cons

    Company itself is old and conservative - haven't been many changes since company first started. Semiconductor manufacturing industry is very cyclical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More innovation with HR to make working at company more enjoyable
