Poor forcasting was hired and layed off four months later
EXPEDITOR/RETURN MATERIAL MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Tualatin, ORSeptember 17, 2018
They should manage there forecasting better in order to headhunting employees and laying them off shortly after. Employees are the last thing on there core values for sure.

Assembler II (Former Employee) –  Tigard, ORSeptember 15, 2018
Lots of hard work rework and fixing mistakes. Job security is non existent unless directly hired through LAM. Otherwise you'll be employed by a Temp agency and become a contracted worker.
Pros
None
Cons
Lots

Don't work here unless you expect to be let go
Material Handler/Logistics Operator (Former Employee) –  Tualatin, ORAugust 21, 2018
I worked here for about 1 year, and it was great until they put all their contracted employees on furlow. They messed up with Samsung, who was a big contract for them, leading to the loss of that contract. Therefore, business was slow and they needed to cut All their contracted employees. Very disappointing.

Great culture when I worked there
Field Process Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZAugust 19, 2018
Was a great culture, but then our group disbanded and took other jobs. There was a downturn in the industry so we had to look elsewhere. I wish that I had stayed. IT was a great company.

Lam Research is a wonderful company to work for. They have very competitive wages and take very good care of their Employees. A typical work day at lam is very nice. You always have help troubleshooting any problems that may arise. Upper Managment is great!

Stressful and pushy
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Tualatin, ORAugust 7, 2018
We were always rushed to do 3x the amount of work, after they fired half the crew. They push their temps to the edge and squeeze as much out of them as they can. They don't hire temps on very often or at all.
Pros
good work experience
Cons
Expensive benefits

Once Lam purchased Novellus. Work loads were poorly distributed to people who kept positions.
Sr Buyer (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAAugust 2, 2018
Lam is OK. They made a mistake on distribution of responsibilities with me, but I assume it was not a normal practice of managing departments. Lam purchased Novellus System in which I was part of. They had a lot of problems implementing two company systems.
Pros
Good paying, good benifits
Cons
Willing to give you more work than you can successfully hanfle

IT Operations Completely Dysfunctional

IT Operations Completely Dysfunctional. Some real b&st&rds working here. Subject matter experts ignored. InfoSys has a stranglehold on IT. Tons of meetings.

Varies on shift and department
Final Test Tech III (Current Employee) –  Tualatin, ORJuly 24, 2018
Starting at lam working night shift was a great experience and enjoyable to work each shift. Switching to day shift in the same department made my experience flip entirely, work moral was extremely low, management was not as robust, and work was no longer enjoyable.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
work environment is less than desired

Great Opportunity at Lam Research
Final Test Technician (Current Employee) –  Tualatin, ORJuly 13, 2018
Working at Lam is definitely more rewarding for some than others. Working in the clean room becomes rather repetitive, but opportunities to advance or transfer within the company do exist. Great job to work while pursuing higher education, as well.
Management does show weakness when it comes to planning, though. Recent reductions in manpower seemed shortsighted. It would behoove management to not treat hourly employees as expendable.
Pros
Consistent schedule, ease of PTO use or unpaid days off, military friendly
Cons
Short breaks, inexperience in management
