"I've only been with the company a week or so. So far I've clicked with the team and management. The work environment is your usual cube setup. Safety is job one in everything we do. I have a good bit of leeway in getting my job completed. It should be a good job for the long haul."

"I've worked at a lot of companies in my career. Applied is by far the hardest company with the most rigid silos and infighting I have experienced. It's a great place to start your career. Any mid to late career types should consider other alternatives."

Lead Consultant
in Gloucester, MA

"I worked at Applied Materials, Varian Semiconductor Div. in Gloucester, MA, as a Lead Consultant of HCLA. In that position I managed a sizable offshore team and directed engineering work to be performed at the electro-mechanical level for integration into existing ION-Implanter systems in the department of Continuous Improvement of Product, CIP.

Applied Materials Employee

"The people are great, but the environment can be difficult to adapt to. Compensation is awesome, but don't bank on bonuses. Health benefits are sub-par. Death by meetings, which is pretty standard in large corporations these days. There is very limited avenue for growth, and rising tends to involve switching departments or even leaving and returning. There is a constant worry about layoffs due to realignment of resources toward R&D (code words). A lot has been outsourced. Enthusiastic CEO."
