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

    Pros

    Good pay the closer ou are to the top

    Cons

    Nepotism
    People from LAM and KLA brought in to new senior positions a step up for them in the move from their duck pond to the ocean. They have all the answers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a strong NCG in-flow investment. Promote from Within. Since most of the Senior management are new they should curb their arrogance and learn about what it takes to run a $10B company save they will find themselves in a company the size of where they left from.

    Great group of Technologists and Engineers but the lack of career opportunities makes it a painful environment.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating employees in the business units, compensation is up to par with market standards, and the Wellness Center (gym/physicians housed internally) is a positive addition to the Santa Clara campus

    Cons

    Many political games- promotions based on relationships not performance, work/life balance poor-average of 50 hour work weeks, career opportunities are limited even if sought out, very little direction until the recent change in upper management and even still, it is most likely too late- it is a very slow moving company overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees for their performance and encourage more collaboration, regardless of title or business unit.
