    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great at solving problems Great with customers Good at identifying potential business opportunities

    Cons

    Always in fire fighting mode Really poor upper management that over commits to customers, over-works and under compensates and poorly rewards the engineers Upper management is tone deaf to poor employee morale, and continuously swing from reckless hiring to downsizing

    Advice to Management

    Try showing creativity at things other than telling your engineers why you cannot deliver on your promises about raises, promotions If you're freezing promotions on one hand and laying of engineers and promoting upper management people and grabbing a bunch of RSU's for yourselves that really hits employee marale
