Pros

High paced work environment with a focus on achievement Very capable and smart coworkers Organizational values are defined and used Good salary, good education benefits Credibility comes from knowledge and demonstrated ability to get things done

Cons

Not for the timid- you must set your own course for development as no one will pull you along. If you're one to wait for an opportunity to be given in recognition then you'll always be waiting. Hard work- work life balance is respected, but you get the balance- you can't be at every family event, home by 5:30 and still expect to move up the ladder. Working at Lam requires real choices. Be prepared to stand up for yourself and your ideas- a room full of achievers means everything gets challenged- and be prepared to be wrong.

Advice to Management

Give the B players some resources to help them feel supported. The achievers can thrive in the "responsible for your own development" environment, but there are others with a lot to offer. Find ways to cultivate that talent.

    Pros

    good stable market share, etch leader in certain technologies. As an intern I found my work was low in the priority list. Too much time wasted waiting for tools.

    Cons

    As an intern I found my work was low in the priority list. Too much time wasted waiting for tools. It sometimes is a little chaotic!!

    Advice to Management

    need to have a good intern hiring and mamgement policy. Define some projects and allocate tool time. Involve interns in the group meetings to get a big picture of the etch problems.
