Pros

The new senior leaders have a clear vision of where it is taking the company. This TEL merger is the biggest change in Applied's history and will be HUGE in shaping a new culture and competitive direction. Also, they just opened an amazing Wellness Center on site with doctors and state of the art workout facilities and exercise classes.

Cons

Hours and workload are intense- people are burning out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more financial incentives with greater upside

    Pros

    Applied is a large, global technology and manufacturing company. Many opportunities exist within technology, engineering, operations, and manufacturing. Compensation tends to be very competitive.

    Cons

    Growth has been within existing markets as well as through acquisition of smaller companies. As a result, the organization is very matrixed. In some parts of the company, it can be difficult to have a clear understanding of the proper peers and stakeholders.

    As part of the semiconductor and high-tech industries, Applied is subject to large business cycle shifts up and down. This can lead to quick changes in operational mentality and organization structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Applied is in the middle of a multi-year merger with some of its largest competitors. The merger of global employees and cultures is a major endeavor. Applied should take care to keep communicating and make sure employees understand their role in the transitional and long-term organizations.
