Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Overall stable. Some business divisions might be chopped but most engineers can find positions in other divisions. And we are really working at the forefront of the semiconductor industry because all production started from us designing/delivering new tools.

Cons

Have to work long hours and weir hours, like 2AM on a Saturday. And I am a process engineer, not technicians who gets overtime paid.

    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.

    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.
