    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very motivating environment, intelligent people, cutting edge-technology. Very competitive salary and benefits, very great chances for personal improvement and evaluation.

    Cons

    Days could get long and stressful. As with all large companies a lot of bureaucracy is involved, could take a while for decisions or turnover. Project management and project staff should work better in maintaining project workflow.

    I worked at Applied Materials

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent location, free water from the water fountain

    Cons

    Dirty offices, broken furniture, substandard equipment, employees are worker bee types who won't complain yet act miserable. No innovation or progressive thinking here - even the coffee is cheap and tasteless. Barbaric!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
