I worked at Lam Research full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Strong executive management team, appear to truly put people first. Executive management has created a model that for the most part shelters the full time employees from layoffs during bad times in the industry, which there are many.

Cons

Lam outsources the majority of what they sell therefore room for moving around within the company is limited to volume manufacturing, pilot manufacturing, engineering and quality. All other functional areas which are part of many companies are outsourced except for some support functions.

Advice to Management

Keep doing the job you are doing however choose tier 1 management that echoes upper management's view on how to treat employees. In addition review every so often what might be beneficial to the corporation in the way of bringing back into the company some of the areas that have been outsourced. Only do this if it makes economical sense because if done employees will have more areas to chose from thereby helping the company to retain qualified staff.
