I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (more than an 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.
