I have been an engineering technician for 2 years. Benefits are good (401k matching, dental/medical, tuition reimbursement, etc). Starting pay was ok, not much of a raise but they do give decent end of year bonuses given you’re not lazy or a terrible employee. They took care of all full time employees with extra hazard pay during the height of Covid-19, including free meals for a while on site. Pay is back to normal and some contractors were moved around but they've kept all full timers employed. Only bad thing is not much opportunities for upwards mobility unless people retire or you move to another department. Management can sometimes play favorites too.
Good benefits, competitive pay, good coworkers
Management won’t even say ‘thanks’ when you jump through hoops for them, limited upward mobility
Favoritism is a key factor at applied materials. I worked for applied materials twice. The first time I was placed with a permanent employee to train me. This person did dot want any part of training anyone except for her own race "Asian"I wasn't there long afterwards. The second time I was employed for applied materials I was unfairly dismissed.Again favoritism took place. Its a short term assignment its rare they hire you as a permanent employee.
Amazing career starter. Here I learn something new every day. This is the reallah deallah production and R&D shop here. Working at both Gloucester and Newburyport sites has been a privilege. Management is hella cool. Plenty of ways to mess up here and get kicked out, but if ou use your head and follow the rules and protocols, it is actually a very fun place to work at. Being here just for seven months, I've learned a great deal about semiconductors and am now considered a ion-implanter operator / Engineering Tech. If the chance to work at Applied Materials is presented to you, grab it without even thinking twice, or sleeping on it. Great place to be at. Much Love to Applied and the great people that are there every day of the year.
Overall benefits were great and location was great. There aren't perks like Google or Facebook (ex. Free food, snacks) but the company is an older corporate company so that is expected. Newer company's such as google and facebook offer all these perks but not all startups are great. Especially if you are looking for a company to work for that is very well structured and has experience "Smoothing the rough edges" out when running a company. If you're looking for that AMAT is a pretty great place to work for.
They try to capture you and force you into a corner with promises of advancement, despite you showing your skills towards higher potential. You have no idea what hours you're working for the next day until hours before the end of the day. Sometimes they'd send contractors home 4hours only of pay. Other times you'd be packing up to leave at 8hrs, then they'd walk over and tell you to work 10s. Management is indecisive on process improvements, yet expect continuous growth on a department level.
Mostly Friendly Coworkers
Terrible management, low pay, unknown work hours until the day of, contractor = bottom of totem pole, must be flexible 100% of time as a contractor, Full-time employees doing same work force work on contractors
Applied materials is a good place to work if you can deal with the stress. Certain job roles do not have much of a work/life balance. If you can cope with those issues, its not a bad place for a career.
good place for a career
stressful ... work/life balance issues
Very difficult to convert to permanent even with excellent performance. Long hours are good if you like the overtime and pay is fair also. Not a place to consider for permanent position unless you are willing to return for multiple contracts for years.
Build and leak check semiconductor equipments. Good experience for resume and opens doors to other similar jobs. Management is big on punctuality. Hardest part of the job is keeping your job longterm as contractor but allows you to come back after layoffs. Good money to make when plenty of overtime for a couple months but then layoffs right after a few months of overtime.
Good experience to put on resume and lots of overtime for a month
Not a stable job but will allow you to come back to work when laid off
the job itself is not to bad, the people for the most part are great and willing to help. they respect time off if giving advance notice. management(well at least my manager) was a bit of problem and trying to advance was also a bit of a problem and not like i was promised.
the workers, work hours, and time off
management and hire.
Work on challenging projects with cutting edge technology. Requires very long hours and lots of weekends. Management also does not provide a clear road map. Priorities are constantly being changed based off of reactions to putting out a fire while larger ones are being ignored in the background.
very productive place to work with a nice management team and also co-worker. I have learned a lot of things from Applied Materials when I work in Pilot Line. I have an opportunity to work with a lot of good design engineer to build a lot of new and high quality equipment in Etch and also in Atomic Liquid Deposition.
R/D place, supporting the business unit. worked along side with Engineers and Scientists enjoy learning, solve problem and improve hardware and process to support the customers.
Good work environment with excellent compensation and benefits, excellent work culture, and fair/reasonable management.
Great work campus amenities, Great extracurricular activities
Moderate work/life balance
