    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Applied Materials full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The technologists who work there have been world class

    Cons

    Extreme politics, inept Executive Management (prior to VSEA take-over)
    Employee morale has been low for some time, and does not appear to get better.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the roots of Applied's success - innovative technology and focus on customer need. Cut out the "professional politicians" that appear to have taken over during the past ten years or so.

    Pros

    It's fast paced, dynamic, challenging and highly educational.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your recruiting system. Don't post jobs that are frozen. Add job descriptions that actually describe the technology.
