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

Pros

Very talented workforce, latest technology, good customer collaboration

Cons

Sometimes, it feels like AMAT product offerings are into a very wide landscape, and management tends to lose focus on priorities

Advice to Management

Streamline products, optimize resources, and get out of markets which do not seem to have long term visibility

    Pros

    Money is decent even if performance is mediocre; good networking opportunities; very involved in community service

    Cons

    getting mindshare for creative ideas that are not part of the "Applied way" is extremely difficult, and impossible if customers are not one of the top 3-5 in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive in going after multiple levels of business/customers; don't let bureaucratic processes prevent good business from coming in


  2. "Challenging work, excellent compensation"
