Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in Austin, TX
Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in Austin, TX

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

Pros

Great people, very good benefits, used to have good training programs.

Cons

The culture of the 90's and early 00's is long gone. Solar was a total waste of time, talent, and capital.

The stock hasn't budged in 10 years, stock buy back - fail, dividend - fail, cash from $8B to $2B. What a train wreck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mike needs to go. The company needs to focus on the core business again, just like what Jim did back in the day.

    Pros

    Customer-focused thinking in a sector of relentless change

    Cons

    Culture is of keeping you doing what you have been good at doing. No notion of growth out side the box.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote unconstrained thinking that is truly outside your comfort zone.

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

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