Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good 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.

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They need some people with knowledge, experience, and hard work to get job done, but no return.
    And they also need some people stay in their manager's office to chat, and get big rewards.
    Many managers know little about their jobs.

    Cons

    It is a politician field, not for a man of integrity
