I worked at Applied Materials as a contractor (less than an 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.

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more to keep your top talent
