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

    Pros

    Divers benefits including stock grants and profit sharing

    Cons

    Large company with a lot of turnover in executive and upper management. Vision and strategy change too frequently for employees to embrace so they mostly ignore the noise and work heads down instead of working for a common goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you make decisions and strategic changes, allow the employees to embrace the vision. This takes time and effort in evangelizing that vision. If you change things every 6 months employees learn to ignore you.

    Pros

    This company pays well and is great if you are a salaried employee.

    Cons

    Manufacturing and hourly employees have zero work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the hourly and manufacturing employees and their families with more respect. They shouldn't be expected to sacrifice their lives for company earnings and management production bonuses.
