  3. Helpful (1)

    Good company but starting to care less about the employees

    Pros

    The good thing about this company is that they pay somewhat well and that there is usually overtime when and if you would like to work.

    Cons

    It seems as if management cares little about the employees and more about just getting tools out the door.

    I have been working at Lam Research full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Lam has been growing quite a lot and management has committed to reinvesting in it's technology and it's people. There should be great things ahead for the company and lots of challenges to solve - Benefits are great (no free food etc like FB/Google/start up life but still pretty good in terms of health, etc) - Profit sharing bonuses can be pretty good - Great executive leadership

    Cons

    - Like any big company it can be easy to get lost and feel like a cog in the wheel but if you are driven and have a good manager to support you you have certainly get notices - Work life balance can get unbalanced but that is the nature of successful companies (especially in Silicon Valley). You will probably find this anywhere you go but Lam does a good job of rewarding it's employees

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people especially below senior manager level. Company does seem a bit top heavy with lots of directors. Encourage more company/community related events so that employees can feel proud to work at Lam. This company is so vital to Silicon Valley more people should know about it and be familiar with it! Build a more fun culture which is a lot to ask for but seems to be in line with what other companies are doing.

    I have been working at Lam Research full-time

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good. Bonus program is decent. Company is dedicated to maintaining their employees. Great job for a person looking to travel

    Cons

    Job is tied directly to customer contracts, so if the customer does not renew the contract an employee may be asked to relocate/travel.

    Advice to Management

    There could be more focus on training when times are slow.

    Compensation is higher than most other semi-companies in the bay area Great benefits + stock Growth opportunities Challenging work Education reimbursement

    One of the most politically driven organizations I've ever seen. Especially at the Sr. Mgr + level. There is no work/life/balance at least not in HR.
