    I worked at Applied Materials full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dynamic and fast-paced, compensation is excellent, good teamwork and collaboration, incredibly bright and dedicated colleagues. The company invests a great deal in developing the skills of its workforce. Communication from senior management is usually quite good.

    Cons

    Very cyclical business often leads to sharp cost-cutting and reductions in force. While the compensation is excellent, management sometimes tends to view that as the cure of all "ailments".

    I worked at Applied Materials as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    As a consultant, my hourly rate was at the market rate. I was given the tools to do my job. The on-site cafeteria was very convenient and the food was offered at reasonable prices.

    Cons

    Employees and consultants need to work together better. People seem to be only interested in themselves and their own career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long-term view. Only looking as far as the next quarter isn't productive. Teamwork is needed to work on large complicated projects, and should be improved.
