Lam Research Employee
in Fremont, CA

"I have worked at Lam Research for over 20 years. Most of of that times span was under excellent supervision and management. However, in recent years the quality of management has deteriorated. The core values of Lam are excellent in principle, but not in execution: "Mutual Trust and Respect" are only words and are not put into practice. There are no 180 reviews of mangers and directors. Vice Presidents listen only to apple-polishing managers. Retribution for fact based disagreement with managers is frequent. I actually heard one director say that Lam "...doesn't need smart people. It needs people to work hard." This in direct contraction to the core value of "Lam Research is where successful people want to work." Well not exactly in contradiction if success is compensation for effective toadying."

Lam Research Employee

"Lam Research is a well run large corporation. On an individual contributor level, you will find a very structured and at times administrative work environment. Since the merger with NVLS, engineers are becoming more specialized in job function and more focused on process rather than quick results. If you enjoy working for a company where you can wear many different hats, this is probably not for you."

What don't you like about working at Lam Research?

"Management liked to blame people for their short coming. The place was very clickish and if you were not in the right place and didn't have the right degree from the right university. You would not get included the click no matter how much contribution you did to the company. Nature of the business is very cyclical and every 24 to 36 months Lam has a lay off. If you are not in the right click, you will get laid off!"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"It would be nice if they stop padding themselves on the back and give themselves bonuses and actually find a vision for the company beside just selling etch products. Every business verdure the company has done beside etches has resulted in failure do to lack of vision and planning."
