    I have been working at Applied Materials (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay the closer ou are to the top

    Cons

    Nepotism
    People from LAM and KLA brought in to new senior positions a step up for them in the move from their duck pond to the ocean. They have all the answers.

    Advice to Management

    Create a strong NCG in-flow investment. Promote from Within. Since most of the Senior management are new they should curb their arrogance and learn about what it takes to run a $10B company save they will find themselves in a company the size of where they left from.
