Pros

Good work life balance; smart people

Cons

No career trajectory what so ever. Just in my team we had 3 top contributors, none of them got promoted for over 3 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees and offer career path for the ones that are doing good.

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

    Pros

    Committed management and focused on key R&D, business lines. New management respected by Wall Street is in transition. Values employees who are committed to company success and meets or exceeds objectives.

    Cons

    Big company mentality rather than entrepreneurial. Can be difficult to make real change. Visions of grandeur, then layoffs every other year. Cyclical pains. Constant cost cutting and budget controls are hard to deal with and after several it can wear you down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time. The vision is good and the transition seems to be on the right track. Macro business environment determines success in any given year so you are constantly looking over your shoulder. Even in a good year, cost cutting abounds and leaves little room for wanting to push the envelope.

    Cons

    It's the biggest company in it's field and gradually it develops a lot of inefficiency and a lot of politics bubbles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Credit people working on the frontier fields, not those so called fat sr. managers,esp, fatty directors
