I worked at Applied Materials full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Worked with very smart, competent people while at this company. They really do acquire good employees and it had a very good team appeal in the work groups I was involved. Many opportunities to make good business connections and move around within the company.

Cons

There are sometimes too much business processes to get through to get to the end result. During my initial time in this company, there were too many levels between individual contributor and CEO. It had since come down and been flattened before I left.

    The people work as teams and cross-teams - leadting to a wonderful sense of accomplishment

    The business is cyclical and that leads to labor reductions - just live with it or perhaps this is not the place for you.

    Treat people like adults and empower them to create the future.
