    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Applied Materials as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    (Gloucester Varian Semiconductor) Engaging work, very helpful managers, friendly coworkers. Really relaxed atmosphere where everyone is willing to take the time to help and teach you new things.

    Cons

    There are nice buildings to work in, and then not-as-nice trailers. Placement is based on the people you are working with. The town of Gloucester is quite boring if you are in your 20's.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
