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

Pros

I studied HR Management before beginning my career at Applied. Unlike other organizations, the company focuses on driving strategic alignment and leveraging its talent to do so. There are so many areas to learn, develop, and make an impact within HR.

Cons

Applied Materials is actively indergoing strategic change that is multifaceted. As a new employee, it can be overwhelming to learn the ropes while so many things are in transition.

    + 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.
