Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Santa Clara, CA

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.

    Pros

    Average semiconductor industry salaries, opportunities around the world.

    Cons

    Company is being very particular with information and data bases w/o any value. Too many VP's and Directors and managers in general. Company does not have clear view regarding future, industry and investments. Most managers busy to meet number and less care about the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, they always know better !!
