"A good company with a poor Senior Management team."

Pros

I enjoyed working with my co-workers.

Cons

A lack of career development. Poor mentoring and coaching from management. Managers are always worried about losing their job and are reluctant to train their employees.

Advice to Management

Constant fear of layoffs has a big impact on morale resulting in a negative work culture.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Divers benefits including stock grants and profit sharing

    Cons

    Large company with a lot of turnover in executive and upper management. Vision and strategy change too frequently for employees to embrace so they mostly ignore the noise and work heads down instead of working for a common goal.

    Advice to Management

    When you make decisions and strategic changes, allow the employees to embrace the vision. This takes time and effort in evangelizing that vision. If you change things every 6 months employees learn to ignore you.

    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.
