    There is something to be said about being the biggest. Applied offered me many different opportunities within the company as my career progressed. They have extremely bright and dedicated people.

    I worked at Applied Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance and 401k matching. Nice people.

    Cons

    Haven't seen a raise above 2% in the last 6 years. The company dictates your paid time off (8 days shut-down at Christmas, and approximately 4 days every other quarter). Turnover is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and treat them like your greatest asset. Turnover is costly and only ends up making the employees work more with heavier workloads.
