I worked at Applied Materials as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The management seems to actually care about the well being of their employees. They offer many things on the job to help anyone who works there to deal with various issues within their lives, such as messages, yoga, exercise classes, team sports, a very good cafeteria, and more.

Cons

You can count on yearly layoffs.

Advice to Management

Continue to be thoughtful, and do more.

    Pros

    Average semiconductor industry salaries, opportunities around the world.

    Cons

    Company is being very particular with information and data bases w/o any value. Too many VP's and Directors and managers in general. Company does not have clear view regarding future, industry and investments. Most managers busy to meet number and less care about the long run.
