I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great mobility within, internal job transfers are a great way to succeed. Benefits are still better than usual although some have been pared significantly over the last decade. A great chance to see some of the most interesting technology.

Cons

Lack of ethics, now more than ever focused on money rather than honesty. No job security whatsoever; lay-offs and benefit paring are very common and happen routinely. Routinely paring American workers and replacing them with low cost region folks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire less managers and rediscover the benefits of partnering with your employees rather than treating them like numbers. Your people are your best asset.
