Applied Materials is a great company (all things considered)!

Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsGet to work in the state-of-art, high technology area of semiconductors processing.
Well regarded and No.1 company in the industry.
Interesting, technically challenging work.
Great colleagues, employees, great diversity, representing culture, nationalities and universities.

ConsCyclical business leading to work-force reduction every 2-3 years.
Could be stressful or long hours, depending on the position.
Many cases hurry-hurry wait-wait situation.
To a small extent sometimes needless bureaucracy.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut your spending (& save) during boom times, not during down times;
May be that will help keep the heads that sacrificed for the company business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mike Splinter continues to hang on as CEO

    Senior Process Engineer (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA (US)

    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: - Experienced coworkers - Company resources - Customer focus Cons: - Senior management lack of direction - Stock price - Living Quarter… Advice to Senior Management: Good recent change with the new President, and finally a focus back on the Silicon Group, unfortunately a lot of business/marketshare has already… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
