Field Productivity Engineer (Current Employee) – Fishkill, NY – July 22, 2017
Too much travel and limited flexibility. Overseas travel became excessive and the customer controlled the Lam culture as far as demanding a heavy work load with tremendous hours. Trips were often too long often in excess of 2 months.
Inventory Specialist/ Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – June 1, 2017
A typical day at work is 8 to 5:30. Standard job that requires patience and hard work. Easy going tech engineers and business people make up the office population. Sometime we get treated with free food. Overall good experience.
Easy going people, Informative Management, Ascending Company
Plain and simple business environment, cubicles, Not very exciting
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – May 24, 2017
My job morphed into being on the road over 80% of the time. While I have enjoyed working here, as well as my coworkers, I would like to seek a position that has me home a bit more than my current position.
Final Test Technician (Former Employee) – Oregon – May 18, 2017
This company has a work place Culture of extreme Narcosis among the upper management and lower employees. We observed a High Rate of turn-overs. There is also a great deal of poorly written documents and technical writing.
Assembler (Current Employee) – Livermore, CA – May 10, 2017
They will have you train your replacement before laying you off. There are people there who have been on temporary employment with lam for over 8 years. You will spend your nights assembling hyper expensive machinery to allow this company to make billions in profit, and they will not even give you full time employment status in return. The work enviroment is extremely unprofessional, coworkers and managers were often hostile. I regret quitting my other job to work for LAM.
Module Test Technician (Current Employee) – Livermore, CA – May 4, 2017
good overall company, past paced learning, long working hours, employees get incentives for doing good. management is approachable as they are former techs themselves and understand what you need to help you suceed.
Materials Program Manager (MPM) for Conductor Etch (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – May 3, 2017
Unrealistic expectations, top-heavy, great deal of territory protection and nepotism, excessive use of outsourced and overseas materials with long-lead items; i.e an off-the-shelf circuit breaker outsourced to South Africa?!?!, poor supplier relationship management, many antiquated ways of managing materials data.
Good choice of food at reasonable prices in the cafeteria.
Great place to work they had cafeterias for lunch and snacks
Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – April 25, 2017
Worked with a great bunch of people. Supported the VP of Operations and all the reported to him. Learned how to work with the PLM system and SAP. Management worked with employees to help advance their career or move to different departments. Wish it didn't have to end.
Great company to work for. Work schedule was ideal.
Senior Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – April 24, 2017
I worked as a Senior Field Service Engineer for Lam Research, but my work place was at an Intel Fabrication Facility in Hillsboro, OR. I loved my work schedule. I worked 12.5 hour shifts Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and every other Saturday. Basically 3 on, 3 off...4 on, 4 off. This schedule was to mirror the techs and engineers at the Intel facility. I loved my job. As a Field Service Engineer, I trained the Intel techs and engineers on the operation and PM's of Lam Research's "wafer etching" equipment. I was also responsible for the majority of the PM's of the equipment and I was also responsible for troubleshooting any issues that arose with the equipment. The interaction between myself and the Intel techs and engineers was a very valuable experience. The ability to work on my own to fix issues was great for my professional development. Lam actually cared about their employees and I always felt I was a major contributor to the success of the company.
Highly technical, leader in the semiconductor space
Director of Procurement/Supply Chain/NPI (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – March 29, 2017
Great, great! company to be a part of it. Privilege to have work for the people I worked for during my tenure at this company. Terrific tools to run the day-to-day business. Sophisticated and useful in performing your job Culture is tough no no nonsense. Accountability and results is the mantra. It is great as these requirements are embraced by all. Learning was a daily task, as there was so much that activity going on. This is typical in the semiconductor space, the market move at a very high pace.
