    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify what you mean about each of the core values. (see above)
    It is not really appropriate for employees to rate their managers.
