Mike Splinter continues to hang on as CEO

Senior Process Engineer (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

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

Pros- Experienced coworkers
- Company resources
- Customer focus

Cons- Senior management lack of direction
- Stock price
- Living Quarter to Quarter
- Outsourcing
- Cutting medical benefits for employees
- Continuous layoffs

Advice to Senior ManagementGood recent change with the new President, and finally a focus back on the Silicon Group, unfortunately a lot of business/marketshare has already been lost over the past number of years.

Time for Mike Splinter to move on, and let Applied go back to being a growth company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros: Being able to work with lots of interesting, smart, driven… Cons: Upper management is very unorganized. The only way to get a promotion is to fake working long… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
