Current Employee - Global Product Manager in Santa Clara, CA
Current Employee - Global Product Manager in Santa Clara, CA

I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good people working there and good people working in the past. Many have moved to our competition.

Cons

Poor management. Lost direction of our core focus as a company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Outsourcing our talent/creativity for the sake of a quick buck kills out ability to innovate in the future and release truly world-class products. Mike needs to move on. He has been a failure.

    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.
