New to Applied Materials. formerly Varian Semiconductor Equipment

Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee) Gloucester, MA

ProsNeed more time to form opinion, just converted from contractor to direct. Was able to make big impact by solving difficult field problems.

ConsNeed more time to form an opinion, just converted from contractor to direct. Need to update documentation system and quality reporting system. Many problems remain hidden due to complex nature of semiconductor tool and way to search different FRU's for common errors

Different groups have internal goals that don't always align with overall corporate goals. Cost cutting in one department can negatively impact overall company quality, reliability and costs and profits.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
