Good Company gone bad. New directions needed

Global Product Manager (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementOutsourcing 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Customer Engineer (Former Employee)

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


Pros: Money was good for the educational level if you're in the right position.… Cons: Doesn't really matter how hard you work or what your contributions are, you're either 'One Of The Boys' or you're not. Lower level managers are… Advice to Senior Management: You constantly talk about rewarding the doers but there is no fairness in the performance reviews. Applied review system has been broken for many… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
