Brilliant people everywhere - but politics rule

Analyst (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

ProsThere are an astounding number of extremely smart and well-educated employees at Applied Materials (PhDs are everywhere). Flexible work environment as long as work is done. Big focus on R&D means budgets for engineers are prioritized.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
