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

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

Pros

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

Cons

Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
