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.

    While once a great company to work in the atmosphere became a hostile work place with quarterly lay-offs.

    I worked at Applied Materials (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally, there are great people. If you are in the right field, Engineering, there is a high level to technical challenge.

    Cons

    At this point unless you are an engineer or in sales, there is no consideration given to you as an employee. Stock and bonuses are being reduced. Lay-Offs are continuing to mount with the upcoming merger with TEL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to move back to the place where all employees were valued, not just Engineers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
