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

Pros

-Balanced quality of life if you're in the right group
-opportunity for advancement
-many educational and mentorship opportunities - good training, and development
-generally, coworkers are pleasant to nice
-easy to succeed

Cons

-Ongoing layoffs since 2002 leads to lots of politics, and lots of CMA-type work, rather than focusing on results, in anything above management level.
-generally poorly paying for the bay area with no to little relocation cost of living adjustment, and very little year-to-year adjustment even for top performers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wiser aquisitions, improve data-based decision making with company-standard enterprise class BI / Analytics tools, improve compensation

    Pros

    I studied HR Management before beginning my career at Applied. Unlike other organizations, the company focuses on driving strategic alignment and leveraging its talent to do so. There are so many areas to learn, develop, and make an impact within HR.

    Cons

    Applied Materials is actively indergoing strategic change that is multifaceted. As a new employee, it can be overwhelming to learn the ropes while so many things are in transition.
