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

    Pros

    Great team members and dedicated people.

    Cons

    Hires too many contractors. Should be hiring RFT's in order to get the best results from employee's.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring contractors to save money. You will get more results and dedication from the employees that are hire as RFT's. Hard to put your heart and soul into a job that you know is temporary and then wait 90 days before you can be hired on again. By that time you have already got someone to replace the contractor and have to waste valuable time training and re-training. Also, all the product knowledge needs to be learned all over again.

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

    Pros

    Other great, dedicated individuals, striving to make produce solutions for the industry.

    Cons

    A large number of people who know the system of how to survive and flourish in a large company. Political connections are frequently more important than aptitude and attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Seek feedback on the genuine nature of your Corporate VP's and their loyal underlings. Their loyalties may be more to their own group than to the company.
