Pros

-Benefits are great! The company takes great care of their people.
-Pay is above average
-Constant evaluation for advancement
-Laid back flexible management
-Most employees are aggressive and will put aside differences and pull together to accomplish a common goal.

Cons

-Employees feel entitled as though the company owes them something besides a paycheck
-Some employees think Mutual Trust and Respect means act fake to your face and complain about you behind your back. I respect people enough to be open and honest with them even if it hurts. That is frowned upon at Lam
-Forced to document all communication to defend yourself when fingers are pointed your way.
-Information is often withheld from another group for fear they will use it against your group... Not open communication.

Advice to Management

Clarify what you mean about each of the core values. (see above)
It is not really appropriate for employees to rate their managers.

    Pros

    High paced work environment with a focus on achievement
    Very capable and smart coworkers
    Organizational values are defined and used
    Good salary, good education benefits
    Credibility comes from knowledge and demonstrated ability to get things done

    Cons

    Not for the timid- you must set your own course for development as no one will pull you along. If you're one to wait for an opportunity to be given in recognition then you'll always be waiting. Hard work- work life balance is respected, but you get the balance- you can't be at every family event, home by 5:30 and still expect to move up the ladder. Working at Lam requires real choices. Be prepared to stand up for yourself and your ideas- a room full of achievers means everything gets challenged- and be prepared to be wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Give the B players some resources to help them feel supported. The achievers can thrive in the "responsible for your own development" environment, but there are others with a lot to offer. Find ways to cultivate that talent.
