Great to see new leadership - but bureaucracy still hampers success

I worked at Applied Materials full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Have to pay well in order to keep people

Cons

bureaucracy here makes the federal government look lean. Good ideas often wet with sayings like: Great idea but hard to turn an oil freighter or it is not worth trying to stop a bus

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop adding Senior Management, follow through on eliminating duplication and waste at the 7 levels of VP

    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!
