Test Technician (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – January 27, 2017
Tribal knowledge is king.
Documented test steps are hit and miss at best, which makes learning difficult, especially for those who thrive on following a process. When the answer to a question is "don't worry about that, just hit enter", something that happens often, nothing is being learned which leads to frustration.
There aren't enough tools for everyone, and you spend a lot of time looking for tools to perform your job, being forced to take tools from someone else that needs them too.
All new hires are temps, and if you don't perform up to their expectations they just terminate your contract with the temp agency, and you're told this in a phone call. No warnings, no write ups, you're just gone.
Everyone I worked with was very friendly and helpful, and the workplace culture was good, as everyone got along with everyone else.

My work experience at Lam Research has been a great career path in my years in the Semiconductor industry. In my opinion, the company culture, strive for excellence and the dedication to customer satisfaction is what has driven Lam to be the successful company it is today.

After giving 2 yrs to Lam, I was not part of getting converted to full time employment as expected. They are good at training but lack many management skills needed to help people succeed in moving up the ladder.
