    Pros

    Being able to work with lots of interesting, smart, driven coworkers.

    Cons

    Upper management is very unorganized. The only way to get a promotion is to fake working long hours. In return, it's very unproductive and things that should take 2 hours end up taking 20 hours.

    Lots of opportunity
    Support of diversity
    Great training

    Cons

    Analysis of employee resources can be poor
    To quick to lay-off

    Advice to Management

    Employees are treated a bit too much as a number. Even rated as TC and having 10 years of CMP exp at R&D, field support, demo I was offered VSP. This was bad for Applied materials, but I am happy to not travel in this point in my life so it worked out.
