    I have been working at Applied Materials full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good people working there and good people working in the past. Many have moved to our competition.

    Poor management. Lost direction of our core focus as a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing our talent/creativity for the sake of a quick buck kills out ability to innovate in the future and release truly world-class products. Mike needs to move on. He has been a failure.
