    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very motivating environment, intelligent people, cutting edge-technology. Very competitive salary and benefits, very great chances for personal improvement and evaluation.

    Cons

    Days could get long and stressful. As with all large companies a lot of bureaucracy is involved, could take a while for decisions or turnover. Project management and project staff should work better in maintaining project workflow.

    I worked at Applied Materials full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Have to pay well in order to keep people

    Cons

    bureaucracy here makes the federal government look lean. Good ideas often wet with sayings like: Great idea but hard to turn an oil freighter or it is not worth trying to stop a bus

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding Senior Management, follow through on eliminating duplication and waste at the 7 levels of VP
