    Current Employee - Process Engineer III in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    R&D work, good benefits. There is a very good potential if the management you are working with is good and focused.

    Cons

    Too many managers and directors. Your contribution is not appreciated as it gets lost because of too many managers involved in a project. Managers are worried about themselves and no efforts to train and develop the new talents. If you are in a particular division, you get a chance to work with others but there is no new learning involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be more focused. Management should take responsibility of people working under them.

    The vision has been lost since the company founders retired.

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

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Very dynamic. Never boring. Intense. Challenging. Lots of bright, talented and creative people. There is always somethin new to learn.

    Cons

    Poor raises. Shutdowns. Constant layoffs. Reduced workforce with increased workloads. In fighting for control can make it difficult to work efficiently. Poor review processes. Men favored over women for promotions and who you know is more important than job skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Non-management employees are a significant asset to the company and contribute a great deal to the sucess of the company, recognizing and valuing these employees could improve morale. Focus on core competencies. Remove the roadblocks that occur from in fighting for control and employee productivity will increase.
