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.
