Advice to Management

Good recent change with the new President, and finally a focus back on the Silicon Group, unfortunately a lot of business/marketshare has already been lost over the past number of years.

Time for Mike Splinter to move on, and let Applied go back to being a growth company.

    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.
