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

Finance Analyst (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

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

ProsBecause 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
