    I worked at Applied Materials full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Why I stayed so long: great co-workers, really a smart talented, friendly group of people, and I respected and felt respected by them. Also, good benefits, reasonable work/life balance for my job (though perhaps not so much for travel jobs or process engineering, depending). My daily life was interesting--always a new challenge, a lot of learning over the years.

    Cons

    Some challenges might come from lack of guidance to newer employees--many technical people are promoted to be managers without gaining the skills needed to mentor, so learning isn't as facilitated--which leads to a lot of inefficiencies. I worked during the 2009 downturn, so there wasn't much mobility in the company, so lack of growth, that's my personal experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in training managers to be mentors, andput more effort in the engineering groups into the process of development and passdown of knowledge, so reinventing the wheel isn't the norm. Bump some pay for people who stuck around through the 2009 downturn, as salaries are lower now than equivalent positions being advertised. Sick days vs PTO encouraged sick people to stay home and keep the office overall less sick. Finally, more HUBS.
