    I have been working at Lam Research full-time

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Lam is the people. I have worked at Lam for 20 years. The thing I like most about coming to work is the friendships I have formed in my 20 years at Lam. Lam also is a strong believer in a work-life balance. People at Lam work hard but are also able to enjoy their well deserved time off. Lam also does a lot of great things to support our local communities. For example, the Heart and Soles 5k race to support the YMCA and Boys and Girls club to help promote exercise and healthy eating for local youth.

    Cons

    This is a good problem to have but Lam's growth is happening at such a fast rate that we are struggling to keep up with customer demands.

    Pros

    Lam is an extremely exciting company to work. The work itself is fulfilling and the people are so welcoming. The company is growing at an unbelievable pace, it’s so exciting thinking where Lam will be in another five years.

    Cons

    The only downside is since Lam is growing at such an outstanding pace, work-life balance has suffered a bit. Lam is hiring a lot of talent to remedy this problem.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing.

    Pros

    Pay, Compressed work week, Great staff, Always busy

    Pay is good but could be better especially depending on which site you work at it can get pretty expensive. Also depending on which shift you work you will not see your family much.

    Better training staff, promote people based off performance not off of you liking someone.

    Pros

    Great company culture as well people. Company spend time in training new employees as well opportunity for advancements. Yearly reviews and salary increases. I worked as an intern in Lam Research. I was well compensated, encouraged to explore my areas of interest within the company, and had a very likable and supportive manager. The downside for me was that the other employers were almost all in their mid 50's or older, making it hard for me to really connect with them and form friendships.

    Cons

    The best thing about working at Lam is the people. I have worked at Lam for almost 2 years. The thing I like most about coming to work is the friendships I have formed in my all must years at Lam. Lam also is a strong believer in a work-life balance. People at Lam work hard but are also able to enjoy their well deserved time off. Lam also does a lot of great things to support our local communities. For example, Holiday is free food all day long

    Advice to Management

    You now must work with your staff to achieve your department and your organizational goals. Your role is to work with others, to help them be productive and effective.
