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

Pros

+ Over 10,000 patents; industry leader.
+ brilliant colleagues; very global
+ strong innovation & customer-focused culture
+ great use of technology in all aspects of the company including the supporting functions
+ base and total comp are good
+ over the past 2 years there has been increased focus on leadership values and management development

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Applied makes great products, market dominate player. standards benefits.

    Cons

    I saw my coworker dies! It is true! heart attack!
    stressful, hard work, 2nd shift, night shift, tool time is expensive; human time is cheap.
    Semiconductor industry is shifting to Asia, low pay, it is a river of no return. Do you want to compete with low pay competitors? Do you want to work with dangerous chemicals? Applied is the place.
