    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Best job I've ever had. I only work 50 hr /wk. Way better than Google, Apple, or LAM. But not Samsung. My friend works at Samsung, and he gets bigger bonuses

    Cons

    CEO Mike Splinter is a joke. Been there way too long. Salaries seem lower than other companies. If you have a bad boss, you're job will suck anywhere

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

    Pros

    The management seems to actually care about the well being of their employees. They offer many things on the job to help anyone who works there to deal with various issues within their lives, such as messages, yoga, exercise classes, team sports, a very good cafeteria, and more.

    Cons

    You can count on yearly layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be thoughtful, and do more.
