Advanced production atmosphere with emphasis on fitness
MECOP Intern (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – May 8, 2014
A typical day at work at Lam Research involved multitasking through the several projects assigned for the internship. At Lam, I learned about CPM and the advantages of understanding a company's critical path.
As one of my projects was to determine the capability to switch from cellular manufacturing to continuous production with three separate lines. Throughout the entirety of this project, my ability to communicate became instrumental, as I had to communicate with three separate contractors for three separate bids.
Management was great at Lam and very involved in outside work activities like playing soccer and running. The Lam management is highly skilled and technical, and very helpful with project lineups. My co-workers were all very nice and welcoming, and anytime you requested help, they would prioritize their schedule to help you.
The hardest part of the job was leaving, as I wanted to begin my career with Lam. I had no choice as the internship ended, but I definitely could have went without having to leave. The most enjoyable part of the job was the daily runs and work outs with my mentor. Showers were available in several buildings and the management really knew how important the work/life balance was.
Disgraceful environment whom treat other below you

After my one year employment at Lam Research, I stepped down to pursue a better career over at Google. Their GIS team was an absolute shambles, complete disorganisation and unfair equality amongst all races and genders. Seriously avoid working in environments like this.

At Lam Research, we create equipment that allows chipmakers to build device features more than 1,000 times smaller than a grain of sand. This tiny scale has a huge impact. Virtually every leading-edge chip inside the electronic products you use every day (TVs, smartphones, laptops, cars—even medical devices) has been made using our equipment.
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.
