Benefits - Lam Research


Helping to move tiny atoms reaps big rewards.

We expect a lot from our team, so we provide a lot in return. From keeping you happy and healthy to helping you save money and spend it wisely, our total rewards program supports the total you. After all, life is more than work, no matter how much you love your job.

The benefits described below are available to employees working in the United States. Questions about benefits in other countries should be directed to the Lam Research office in that region.
