5 yrs in technical and marketing roles

Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHigh salary compared with peers, excellent bonus structure for mid level and up

ConsCorporate and business unit strategies change too often creating a reactive and chaotic work environment, rolling layoffs every quarter, recent changes in the benefits structure are more invasive and lower coverage trends.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease accountability. Streamline activities. Get you operating costs to an acceptable point and hold them there - stop the rolling layoffs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
