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 5 years)

    Pros

    Because of constant turnover, positions seem readily available. They offer rotation if you find yourself in an undesirable position. Hight potential if you move to California.

    Cons

    Very flat Finance organization, compensation awards just got taken away making morale lowe. GIS department is horrible to work with. The systems are antiquated and the solution is to burden the employees with busy work.

    Advice to Management

    Taking away employee stock grants was a big miss. Competition for work force in our profession is not industry specific. Those that can leave will.
