Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees are treated a bit too much as a number. Even rated as TC and having 10 years of CMP exp at R&D, field support, demo I was offered VSP. This was bad for Applied materials, but I am happy to not travel in this point in my life so it worked out.

Disapproves of CEO
