    I worked at Applied Materials full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hours, great pay as a contractor due to all the over time.

    Cons

    Management doesn't really interact with individual technicians, worked there for a whole year and saw the Manager of my department at least 3 times a week and he had no idea who I was or anyone except people that had been there for decades.

    Advice to Management

    Interact with your employees. Show them you care, I get that contractors come and go at applied but not every contractor is just there for a paycheck. A lot of contractors there come in on weekends on very short notice, work the long hours to get through the quarter because they want to be there and earn a spot full time. Talk to your contractors,get to know them, make them feel like part of the team. Not just another number.
