Featured Review

Former Employee - Mechanical Engineering Co-Op

I worked at Kulicke and Soffa full-time for less than a year

Pros

Fast pace R&D environment. Talented and friendly co-workers. Gym included with occasional Ping Pong tournament.

Cons

This can be both pros and cons: Interns are not closely supervised, as long as getting the job done. You are expected to figure out things yourself

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Lam Research full-time

Pros

Lam offered me my first job in the US and a 14+ year career that has been challenging and extremely rewarding. As a female engineer and a foreigner, I feel privileged to be part of a company that... has supported my professional growth, appreciated my contribution and fulfilled me beyond my expectations. This is a company made of people truly passionate and skilled, a company with a world class executive team, that matches the quality and integrity of every other level. There is no other way to perform and grow the way Lam Research has done so, if not for the extraordinary vision of the leadership team and the skilled and motivated workforce. There is no way to deliver, year after year, unprecedented results if there wasn't an environment of respect, trust, and teamwork. It has been an honor to be part of the company under the leadership that raised the bar during the past years, that inspired us to execute what seemed impossible, that made us believe in our collective power and that changed the lives of thousands of people through stock performance and profit sharing. I look forward to many more years at Lam, to the opportunities ahead and the fortune to work with and for, remarkable people.

Cons

Opportunity means hard work, high level or performance means hard work.. if you understand that, you will thrive at Lam

Advice to Management
