Material handler (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – September 17, 2018
Working at LAM Research, was fun and had a lot of new experiences and challenging, but there was only one thing that, I am don't like is the management. They didn't see who's hard worker and keep making new rules that doesn't no help the company and worker.

Lam Research was a great opportunity to work. I was contracting for about 6 months then laid off due to cutbacks. During the time I was there had a great experience and was able to gain new skills. They always something new to learn. They always had opportunities take classes and learn new skills.
Room to move around and room for advancement with a competitive feel

One of Lam's core values is "Where successful people want to work". This notion is embedded in the culture. This allows for strong employees to find their chance to grow. It also breeds a competitive work environment where comparing your performance to others and staying ahead of the game is key.

Competitiveness, Large Company has many process standards

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.

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!

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.
Once Lam purchased Novellus. Work loads were poorly distributed to people who kept positions.
Sr Buyer (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 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.
Good paying, good benifits
Willing to give you more work than you can successfully hanfle

Lam Research is an excellent company compared to many others in the same industry or not. Management is good and they hire great people with positive personalities. Workplace culture is top notch and very inviting.

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.
Final Test Technician (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – July 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.
Consistent schedule, ease of PTO use or unpaid days off, military friendly
