People were friendly and helpful, but upper management is unorganized

Process Engineer (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than a year

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

ConsUpper 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
