Pros

Very talented workforce, latest technology, good customer collaboration

Cons

Sometimes, it feels like AMAT product offerings are into a very wide landscape, and management tends to lose focus on priorities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Streamline products, optimize resources, and get out of markets which do not seem to have long term visibility

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kalispell, MT

    Pros

    lots of online training available(most for a fee). OK benefits if you can afford to purchase. Management has an open door policy that allows for greater lip service or derisiveness. Whichever they feel is necessary at the time to control you and make you fear them.

    Cons

    Applied Materials no longer has a compact with their employees and their only focus is on shareholder value and continued efforts to reduce costs no matter what. Mostly at the expense of employee quality of life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    practice what you preach. ETHICS, EVERYONE, EVERYDAY. Read the definition of the word ethics and attempt to actually understand what it means.
