Pros

The best things about AMAT while I worked were the employees and managers that worked there. Everyone knew my name (though I didn't know all of theirs) and they treated me kindly, even managers of other groups. Work environment is very casual and working hours are flexible. Managers and co-workers alike were always open to answering questions, helping out, and providing positive feedback.

Cons

While I worked there, I feel I made slow progression. Sometimes things will get put off or delayed for weeks, and I feel things could have been more organized. During downtime, I was struggled to find anything to work on since I felt I was wasting time.

Advice to Management

I feel leadership was competent, and managers did not feel they were above their workers. I did feel there were bit of a communication barrier between the workers and their managers since managers expect certain work out of the engineers, yet they often do not see anything first hand.
