I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Large fast paced company with many opportunities for growth and learning in the semiconductor segment. The company is full of great people to work with and people are always willing to help if you ask for it.

Cons

Very fast paced with a get it done at all costs atmosphere. They can be very demanding of your time and shutdowns are too common in down turns.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees better. Spend money better and limit shutdowns.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great mobility within, internal job transfers are a great way to succeed. Benefits are still better than usual although some have been pared significantly over the last decade. A great chance to see some of the most interesting technology.

    Cons

    Lack of ethics, now more than ever focused on money rather than honesty. No job security whatsoever; lay-offs and benefit paring are very common and happen routinely. Routinely paring American workers and replacing them with low cost region folks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less managers and rediscover the benefits of partnering with your employees rather than treating them like numbers. Your people are your best asset.
