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

Pros

There 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.

Cons

Politics and silos are very strong.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open to people on the "other side" as they have alot to offer. Do not simply rely on outside hires from competitors, there is alot of talent already here.

    I worked at Applied Materials

    Pros

    Team was proactive in taking projects and keeping the work environment friendly as well as professional.

    Cons

    Management at some teams was not involved with the team members which left the employees on the threshold on choosing their project with no management overlooking as well as no feedback or consideration from the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get invloved with the your team.
