Management doesn't care about anything which creates a depressing work environment. Good amount of hours but the job wasn't for me. Could be great for someone else.

Principal (Staff) Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Gloucester, MAJune 29, 2018
Prefers talkers over performers. When working in engineering those who to just speak are more highly regarded than those who perform actual tasks. You can never do anything wrong if you don't do anything.

ok place to work
CUSTOMER ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  OregonJune 27, 2018
paying mediocre wages for mediocre employees. If you excelled in school or at a previous employer, this place will find a way to make sure you know they hire people who are cheaper and dumber than you and will have no problem replacing you with someone less than par. Use this place as a stepping stone.

Decent work for decent pay
Electro-mechanical Assembler (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 13, 2018
Applied is a good place to work if you want to make more than just 10/ hr at any other place. Usually no training is needed to be in assembly because they will train but experience will get you more money. Contractors get paid every Friday and typically you will get 40 hours or more unless business is slow or parts don't arrive on time. That being said, it is sometimes a feast or famine type situation. When there is overtime to be made you will work but you can also be sent home if they can't find anything for you to do. Most of it depends on which department you're in and who your supervisor is.
Pros
Above Average Pay, Paid Breaks, Benefits Day One
Cons
Feast or Fame work, Management is hit or miss

Get work done
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJune 6, 2018
Now let's be real, we're talking about Silicon Valley and it is very competitive. I look back and realize that it was a very low paying job, but I do have to say that I did learn from the best engineers and the company ran more efficiently than most. No need to put on a fake smile and just work to get the job done. I'm not good a fake smiles so I was able to work effectively at this company.
Pros
Learn skills and work on things that will prepare you for a lifelong engineering career
Cons
Cut throat Silicon Valley mentality
