Going downhill unless you're an engineer and/or a Sr. Manager and above... even that is questionable.

I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Because of constant turnover, positions seem readily available. They offer rotation if you find yourself in an undesirable position. Hight potential if you move to California.

Cons

Very flat Finance organization, compensation awards just got taken away making morale lowe. GIS department is horrible to work with. The systems are antiquated and the solution is to burden the employees with busy work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Taking away employee stock grants was a big miss. Competition for work force in our profession is not industry specific. Those that can leave will.
