    I worked at Lam Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company pays significantly above market rate for a given skill set, and people tend to stay a long time, while maintaining a work-life balance that's well weighted on the side of kids, hobbies and barbecue parties.
    Also, equipment engineering teams, from what I could see, are cohesive socially and technically, have deep expertise in equipment design and there is plenty of excellent creative work being done, with the associated respect, mentorship, and sharing of credit among peers.

    Cons

    The overall culture is influenced by many employees hired straight out of the military, and with the low turnover rate the changing norms of society are slow to permeate. The Fremont office - with the exception of equipment engineering - seemed to have little of the professional mutual respect I had seen elsewhere, and instead had some distasteful elements - bullying and posturing as a means of persuasion, crass and sexually loaded language as the language of criticism, and a daily banter of overt homophobic, racist, and sexist insults being thrown around for levity.
    To give a sense of how noticeable this was, when I was there I expressed some surprise to a colleague at the inappropriate joking going on. I was told the HR department made it a point not to visit our section of the offices because there were so many things to be heard or seen that would have been a problem for them to witness.

    Advice to Management

    fix the culture
