    I worked at Applied Materials full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Get to work in the state-of-art, high technology area of semiconductors processing.
    Well regarded and No.1 company in the industry.
    Interesting, technically challenging work.
    Great colleagues, employees, great diversity, representing culture, nationalities and universities.

    Cons

    Cyclical business leading to work-force reduction every 2-3 years.
    Could be stressful or long hours, depending on the position.
    Many cases hurry-hurry wait-wait situation.
    To a small extent sometimes needless bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut your spending (& save) during boom times, not during down times;
    May be that will help keep the heads that sacrificed for the company business.
