    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, open to new ideas, interesting technology and good office locations

    Cons

    lots of infighting within groups because of very poorly defined roles & responsibilities, stress, no work - life balance (depends on the group)

    Advice to Management

    Share a clear vision. CEO seems to be making changes - will wait and watch.
    Stop the constant cycle of layoffs and rehiring.
    Change from a cost reduction focus to cost optimization one - it will encourage better & more sensible hiring than just paying double the money for a contractor that ends up permanently on a contract for the company.
