Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – January 1, 2014
LAM provides an incredible work environment for its employees. I work away from HQ as and FSE, but we had our own local employee parties and get-togethers. Pay, advancement, and career opportunities were very good. If you knew where you wanted to go with your career, they would help you get there.
Process Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 16, 2015
Doing internship at Lam is more of a work experience. I had tons of opportunities to learn and develop myself. My manager and co-workers are very supportive. My mentor walked me through almost every single espect of being a successful process development engineer. This experience is very valuable. I would like to recommend this company to those who are interested in.
The most important part of what I have learned from working there- to be proactive about my skills and mindset regarding work. The coworkers were great to work with and always had a team spirit about their endeavors.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new applications and processes.
This company is very big on training and on-going learning

Production Test Technician (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – August 23, 2015
The company as a whole seems to have their things in order and treat employees well. Their Tualatin manufacturing facility is the exact opposite of that. They provide very little and wildly inconsistent training, direction, support and leadership. Many of the supervisors and managers are petty, cliquish, and divisive. There is almost no opportunity to advance ones self within the organization (without brown-nosing) and they prevent productive employees from transferring within the company. This is such a shame since I find the work itself to be challenging and rewarding.
As mentioned, the company as a whole seems very pleasant and capable. Employees are provided with a solid benefits package that has options to fit different situations. Lam definitely has the feel of a large corporation in regards to their HR/PR feel but most of the departments are small enough that they all have their own feel. I don't get the sense that I'm trapped in a big corporate machine, which is nice.
the work is interesting and challenging, benefits, cafeteria
Final Test Technician III (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – August 20, 2015
The people are really good to work with and there is a lot of semiconductor experience among the senior technicians. Complex troubleshooting is part of the day to day routine and there is a steep learning curve for new technicians due to minimal training. Not very many opportunities to move up in the company without changing departments. Technical ability is not weighted very heavily during evaluations.
Assembly Technician (Current Employee) – Tualatin OR – July 8, 2015
You build all the whole time you are there. Even though the shifts are long they go by fast. Not everyone is at the same skill level, so it can be frustrating at times when the lower skilled employees are not expected to do much.
Growing company with potetial but lack of planning
Material Coordinator (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – May 14, 2015
This company has potential for big growth but it seems to be reactionary to processes and trends vs. being proactive or the process of planning projects and capital investment. They don't fully vest ideas but throw money at it and wonder why it doesn't work
Good healthcare, benefits for employee excercise
employee advancement, low compensation, lack of management interaction
