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

Pros

Excellent technology, smart people, cutting edge work, engaging and challenging projects

Cons

Lots of middle management, who only delegate and don't really contribute any demonstrable value to the organisation. Work life balance can take a hit as a consequence

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the organisational bureaucracy and middle management politics
