    Current Employee - Process Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

    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.

    Applied Materials semiconductor equipment company review

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Director, Business Development  in  Santa Clara, CA
    Current Employee - Director, Business Development in Santa Clara, CA

    Pros

    Employee and customer focused messaging from Corporate perspective. Compensation structure (salary, bonus, RSU's, benefits) are competitive within Silicon Valley

    Cons

    Industry is susceptible to severe downturns every 3-5 years resulting in corresponding employee downsizing events. The company has invested large sums in the Solar equipment space which is currently dominated by the Chinese. Even though the company has tried to rightsize the business to make it breakeven in the hopes of a turnaround, my feeling is this will be a fruitless effort in the long run

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on core technology in semiconductor manufacturing space.
