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.

    Pros

    Pays well if you stay employed.
    Work from home is available for many positions

    Cons

    Constant downsizing. CFO commits to increasing profitability by layoffs instead of growing innovation.
    Years of cuts create stress where too much work and not enough employees
    Shipping all jobs out of USA to low cost regions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You move all positions offshore, firing American workers and then wonder why growth is slowing?
