Applied Materials was great training for me in the trenches

Senior Process Support Engineer (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA (US)

I worked at Applied Materials full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLots of opportunity
Support of diversity
Great training

ConsAnalysis of employee resources can be poor
To quick to lay-off

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are treated a bit too much as a number. Even rated as TC and having 10 years of CMP exp at R&D, field support, demo I was offered VSP. This was bad for Applied materials, but I am happy to not travel in this point in my life so it worked out.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
