Featured Review

Current Intern - Software Engineer(Internship)

I have been working at KLA for less than a year

Pros

Manager Working on new technologies Fast-Paced environment

Cons

I did not find any cons till now

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at Lam Research full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Transparency about where we are successful, and where we can improve. Leadership is committed to taking action, and sharing progress over time. Development opportunities are available to everyone... and you own your career path.

Cons

Business success influenced by external forces that are outside of the companies control, like trade issues or market cycles. But the company has managed through a tough backdrop this year to deliver... solid revenue and good bonus payouts.

Advice to Management

Stay open, engaged, and committed to building on our strong culture to keep Lam a great place to come to work everyday
