Current Employee - Project Manager  in  Fremont, CA
Current Employee - Project Manager in Fremont, CA

Pros

-Benefits are great! The company takes great care of their people.
-Pay is above average
-Constant evaluation for advancement
-Laid back flexible management
-Most employees are aggressive and will put aside differences and pull together to accomplish a common goal.

Cons

-Employees feel entitled as though the company owes them something besides a paycheck
-Some employees think Mutual Trust and Respect means act fake to your face and complain about you behind your back. I respect people enough to be open and honest with them even if it hurts. That is frowned upon at Lam
-Forced to document all communication to defend yourself when fingers are pointed your way.
-Information is often withheld from another group for fear they will use it against your group... Not open communication.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Fremont, CA

    Pros

    Ok pay and benefit, smart and nice colleagues, good environment, flexible working hours (depending on the direct report), challenging projects

    Cons

    Long working hours, difficult to have work life balance, way too much politics between groups, leadership lacking at director level in new business group, ownership/accountability only applies to engineers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be a big disconnect between the management level and the engineers. Management level should spend more time knowing their engineers and reducing unnecessary politics.
