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

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

    Pros

    Committed management and focused on key R&D, business lines. New management respected by Wall Street is in transition. Values employees who are committed to company success and meets or exceeds objectives.

    Cons

    Big company mentality rather than entrepreneurial. Can be difficult to make real change. Visions of grandeur, then layoffs every other year. Cyclical pains. Constant cost cutting and budget controls are hard to deal with and after several it can wear you down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time. The vision is good and the transition seems to be on the right track. Macro business environment determines success in any given year so you are constantly looking over your shoulder. Even in a good year, cost cutting abounds and leaves little room for wanting to push the envelope.
