    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Need more time to form opinion, just converted from contractor to direct. Was able to make big impact by solving difficult field problems.

    Cons

    Need more time to form an opinion, just converted from contractor to direct. Need to update documentation system and quality reporting system. Many problems remain hidden due to complex nature of semiconductor tool and way to search different FRU's for common errors

    Advice to Management

    find way to have all groups working in same direction. individual departments optimize for their own department benefit. Different groups have internal goals that don't always align with overall corporate goals. Cost cutting in one department can negatively impact overall company quality, reliability and costs and profits.
