Pros

I studied HR Management before beginning my career at Applied. Unlike other organizations, the company focuses on driving strategic alignment and leveraging its talent to do so. There are so many areas to learn, develop, and make an impact within HR.

Cons

Applied Materials is actively indergoing strategic change that is multifaceted. As a new employee, it can be overwhelming to learn the ropes while so many things are in transition.

    Pros

    Well-seasoned Engineering teams. Good benefits. Lots of skilled employees. Ability to influence technical solutions. In the past - lots of training to improve skills in all fields.

    Cons

    Hidden decisions. Frequent and unjustified lay offs. Outsourcing the most valuable developments to India and Russia. No loyalty to old-time folks.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the results of unsuccessful outsourcing. Retain all talented and the most professional workforce in US. Re-hire all experts to restore Company's culture of 80-th and 90-th.

  2. Environment where innovative & results-oriented employees thrive

    Cons

    - Demanding environment
    - must be prepared to work hard; long hours
    - shutdowns are used to meet financial targets and employees are not always given adequate notice

    Advice to Management

    Shutdowns should not be used to meet financial targets. Must plan/forecast better to allow employees time to plan vacations as well.
