I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (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 Management

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.
