I worked at Applied Materials full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Well-seasoned Engineering teams. Good benefits. Lots of skilled employees. Ability to influence technical solutions. In the past - lots of training to improve skills in all fields.

Cons

Hidden decisions. Frequent and unjustified lay offs. Outsourcing the most valuable developments to India and Russia. No loyalty to old-time folks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Evaluate the results of unsuccessful outsourcing. Retain all talented and the most professional workforce in US. Re-hire all experts to restore Company's culture of 80-th and 90-th.

    Pros

    Applied makes great products, market dominate player. standards benefits.

    Cons

    I saw my coworker dies! It is true! heart attack!
    stressful, hard work, 2nd shift, night shift, tool time is expensive; human time is cheap.
    Semiconductor industry is shifting to Asia, low pay, it is a river of no return. Do you want to compete with low pay competitors? Do you want to work with dangerous chemicals? Applied is the place.
