    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and decent benefits along very interesting technology. Strong corporate core values that are actually followed by most and generally a very ethical company.

    Cons

    Can be very dysfunctional with lot's of in fighting between groups/divisions but not altogether atypical for a $10B company. Also layoffs have been a constant over that last few years as senior management tries to appease wall street and the BoD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing unattainable goals down from the top and build a bottoms up plan that mere mortals can actually achieve.
