    I worked at Applied Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Engineers are for the most part quite intelligent and easy to get along with.
    Many projects were quite interesting and cutting-edge.
    Good benefits package compared to similar companies (401K matching, employee stock purchase plan, health care).

    Cons

    Too many reorganizations -- I had a new manager every year.
    Bad project management in the division I worked in -- frequent late cancellations, scrambling.
    Office politics also frequently got in the way of project completion.
    During downturns, the cost-cutting was to the point of ridiculousness.

    Advice to Management

    Annual reorganization is highly disruptive and bad for employee morale.
