Great place to work if you know what you want

Program Manager (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

ProsHigh 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

ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementGive 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.
