    You can learn lot of technical stuff

    Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in Austin, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    Great people, very good benefits, used to have good training programs.

    Cons

    The culture of the 90's and early 00's is long gone. Solar was a total waste of time, talent, and capital.

    The stock hasn't budged in 10 years, stock buy back - fail, dividend - fail, cash from $8B to $2B. What a train wreck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mike needs to go. The company needs to focus on the core business again, just like what Jim did back in the day.
