    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee and customer focused messaging from Corporate perspective. Compensation structure (salary, bonus, RSU's, benefits) are competitive within Silicon Valley

    Cons

    Industry is susceptible to severe downturns every 3-5 years resulting in corresponding employee downsizing events. The company has invested large sums in the Solar equipment space which is currently dominated by the Chinese. Even though the company has tried to rightsize the business to make it breakeven in the hopes of a turnaround, my feeling is this will be a fruitless effort in the long run

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on core technology in semiconductor manufacturing space.
