Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Being able to work with lots of interesting, smart, driven coworkers.

Cons

Upper management is very unorganized. The only way to get a promotion is to fake working long hours. In return, it's very unproductive and things that should take 2 hours end up taking 20 hours.

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They need some people with knowledge, experience, and hard work to get job done, but no return.
    And they also need some people stay in their manager's office to chat, and get big rewards.
    Many managers know little about their jobs.

    Cons

    It is a politician field, not for a man of integrity
